In view of increasing competition requirements and high market dynamics, the early recognition of technological trends and the targeted handling of market and technology signals are becoming increasingly important for companies. As part of the project, “AVARTIM” is to be used to develop a software-supported process for recognizing and evaluating trends, market and technology signals in order to sustainably support the process of innovation and technology management. As part of the project, an infrastructure will be set up at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, which is modular and thus able to react quickly to technological changes. The infrastructure to be developed here serves as preliminary research and initial technology both for industrial use by and with the SME partners as well as for the application for joint projects. First of all, participation in the LOEWE funding line 3 of the state of Hessen and subsequently in the tender for LEIT-ICT / Big Data technologies of the EU is aimed at.
By integrating a holistic data transformation from heterogeneous raw data to visual-interactive analysis, AVARTIM gets its innovative character tools that empower people to understand complex issues, infer conclusions, and make decisions. As part of this project, the focus will be on those trends and signals that appear very early in the technological life cycle. This information can be obtained primarily from conference papers, journals and primary literature sources (WTI Frankfurt, Springer, CrossRef, etc.).
