Wolters Kluwer announces strategic alliance to bring AI-powered analytics technology to market for IP professionals

Collaboration with intellectual property analytics provider Aistemos further strengthens Wolters Kluwer's intellectual property solutions.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced plans to bolster its market-leading intellectual property (IP) content and workflow solutions through a strategic alliance with Aistemos, an innovative IP data and intelligence firm. Through this strategic partnership, Wolters Kluwer will make Aistemos' acclaimed Cipher Reports available to its wide range of customers, providing access to highly valuable analysis and reporting.

Cipher Reports are now available to Wolters Kluwer customers on Kluwer IP Law, the world's leading research solution for global intellectual property professionals, at Leveraging artificial intelligence, Cipher offers interactive reports that can provide in-depth analysis and reporting on day-to-day management of patent assets, risk and litigation, cost management, and other insights. Cipher Reports further strengthens Kluwer IP Law's unparalleled compendium of resources by making rich analysis and insight accessible to a wide range of IP professionals.

"As the quantity and complexity of data has increased – from patents, to licenses and standards – it has become more difficult for IP professionals to spot trends and extract insights that can better help them advise their clients," said Amit Alagh, a Product Manager for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. "Making Cipher Reports available through Kluwer IP Law is another key step in Wolters Kluwer's efforts to bring cutting-edge technology to the market faster and provide accessibility to firms of all sizes."

"By applying AI and machine learning to comprehensive IP data, we have developed a definitive source of business intelligence optimized to help companies understand complex technology landscapes," said Nigel Swycher, founder and CEO of Aistemos.
