Ibm patent leadership u s 17 consecutive years

2008 – Pledge to 50% increase in published inventions

IBM Patent Leadership (U.S) – 17 consecutive years

Jan. 14th 2009"IBM's leadership in the strategic use of intellectual property is based on balancing proprietary and open innovation," said Dr. John E. Kelly III, IBM senior vice president and director of IBM Research. "Our goal is helping stimulate innovation as public investments in large infrastructure projects are being planned to boost global economies. We also anticipate that adding additional transparency to the patent system will help tackle the continuing patent quality crisis, which is impeding inventors, entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes."

IBM Shatters U.S. Patent Record again, will license its patent portfolio management know-how for the first time

2009 – Offer patent portfolio management know-how

# of IBM Patents per year

  • Jan 12th 2010: IBM announced that it received 4,914 U.S. patents in 2009, marking the 17th consecutive year it has topped the list of the world's most inventive companies.

    • IBM also announced that, for the first time, it will offer its invention know-how and patent portfolio management software to clients seeking to enhance their intellectual property (IP) management capabilities in support of innovation-based growth strategies.

    • Over 4000 innovations published, making them freely available


2007 – 15 patents pledged to Eco-Patents Commons

Jan 14th 2008, Leading members of the corporate community have come together in a first-of-its-kind effort to help the environment, unleashing dozens of innovative, environmentally-responsible patents to the public domain.


# of Patents for IBM and Competitors 2009

2006 – Moves to increase patent quality


  • Jan. 10th 2006 IBM announced that is working with the USPTO, Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), members of the open source software community and academia to improve patent quality.

  • That initiative has three elements:

    • Open Patent Review

    • Open Source Software as Prior Art

    • Patent Quality Index

2008 – Pledge to 50% increase in published inventions


2007 – 15 patents pledged to Eco-Patents Commons

2006 – Moves to increase patent quality

2005 – 500 Patents pledged to Open Source


2005 – 500 Patents pledged to Open Source

Jan. 11th 2005 “True innovation leadership is about more than just the numbers of patents granted. It's about innovating to benefit customers, partners and society,” said Dr. John E. Kelly, IBM senior vice president, Technology and Intellectual Property. “Our pledge today is the beginning of a new era in how IBM will manage intellectual property.

Information overload

Information Overload

  • As the world is becoming increasingly interconnected, intelligent and instrumented, more sensors are placed throughout the world to capture the data.

  • While more information is available to enterprises, less of the data is being effectively captured, managed, analyzed and made available to the people who need it. Enterprises can’t keep pace.

  • Data matters because everything from traffic to utilities to healthcare information can be captured, monitored and analyzed for insight.

New opportunities how we can help

New market

New level of client value

New Opportunities: How We Can Help

  • With all of this data come new challenges as organizations are now struggling to not only extract the relevant information, but to make sure it’s more intelligent and actionable.

  • IBM Research is pursuing leading edge research and actively engaging in client projects to extend the ability for analytics to predict outcomes and improve the speed and quality of business decisions – using data analysis and modeling algorithms, to help achieve a Smarter Planet
