Workshop Description

The workshop will demonstrate features in the new VantagePoint - BizInt Smart Charts Edition, scheduled for release in May 2012.

VantagePoint – BizInt Smart Charts Edition will import files exported by BizInt Smart Charts for Drug Pipelines or BizInt Smart Charts for Patents, using a custom version of the new XML Smart Data Exchange format. BizInt Smart Charts users can apply data cleaning and user-managed thesaurus tools in VantagePoint and then export cleaned and normalized fields back to BizInt Smart Charts.

VantagePoint – BizInt Smart Charts Edition will contain VantagePoint's core analytics suite including market-leading Data Cleanup, Thesaurus, Record Classifications, My Keywords, and interactive analytical visualizations. Data exchange between the two tools will be simplified to make it easy to move data back and forth, allowing the user to concentrate on analysis and reporting, rather than managing data flow.

This workshop is for both current users of BizInt Smart Charts and VantagePoint and others interested in new tools for analysis and presentation of patent information.
