Science continues to march on, generating new technological options in laboratories around the world every day. It’s often not possible for scientists, decision-makers and managers in technology and innovation to keep abreast of such a rapidly growing mass of information, or to acquire quick, precise insights into the latest developments. Fraunhofer INT developed the KATI System to meet this challenge. Fraunhofer INT’s approach is to use its expertise in data-driven foresight, competence that has built up over the years. This research area uses IT and data-supported procedures in a foresight process. It centers on the development of the support system KATI: Knowledge Analytics for Technology & Innovation. In essence, KATI is a powerful tool for literature research which also offers extensive, unique analysis and visualization options - options specifically conceived to support the analysis and evaluation of scientific sources, as published in journals for example. KATI is so designed that other types of source can also be tapped.
We are collaborating with our partner Digital Science, to offer the whole KATI system range to interested clients. The system is highly interesting for all who are looking for in-depth insights into research fields through the analysis of scientific publications – something that especially addresses users in technology and innovation management, research and development and decision-making support.
Web-based access to the KATI system allows clients to use KATI functions for their own research and analysis. Where clients also want to include their own data in their analyses, we can design a KATI solution that suits the needs of the clients’ own IT environment.
