Spot leading innovative companies with GlobalData’s Innovation Scorecard

Innovation remains a necessity in a disruptive ecosystem, as continuous innovation allows companies to adapt, evolve, and grow through disruption. Using our in-house alternative datasets, we are excited to launch GlobalData’s Innovation Scorecard. This scorecard will allow clients to rank 3,500+ companies on their innovation activity, impact, and disruptive potential across geography, sector, and theme. The scorecard provides a data-driven framework to rank leading companies on the potential of their intellectual property (IP) portfolio. GlobalData’s Innovation Scorecard focuses not only on the activity of innovation in the organization but also on its impact and disruptive potential using the 3I framework: Intensity, Impact, and Ingenuity. The tool helps clients to identify the most innovative companies that are disruptive leaders and challengers and can create alpha for their portfolio using the insights driven by 19+ high-value KPIs. Download our report to find out more about this innovative tool. Key findings derived from this tool include:
  • Alphabet, Tencent, and Qualcomm are the top three innovative companies in the last 10 years
  • The scorecard finds Technology & Communications and Pharma & Healthcare as the two main sectors driving innovation
  • Loreal placed as ‘Disruptive Leader’ in the Consumer sector, while Revlon has been identified as a traditional laggard
  • Companies such as Etsy and H&M are challenging retail ‘Disruptive Leaders’ Amazon and Walmart
