Boston-headquartered intellectual property management and analytics software and services vendor Anaqua has been selected by IBM to manage its global patent and trademark portfolio.
IBM is said to have chosen Anaqua’s IP management platform because of its deep knowledge of IP processes and a sophisticated out-of-the-box solution, combined with an aggressive technical roadmap that ensures incorporation of the latest technology into the software, which is hosted on IBM’s industry leading Cloud platform.
Anaqua recently selected IBM Cloud as its preferred global cloud provider and is expanding its global presence into Japan and the Netherlands via IBM Cloud data centers in Tokyo and Amsterdam. IBM’s global footprint includes more than 55 cloud data centers in 19 countries across six continents.
“It is a tremendous honour to be selected by a global innovation leader like IBM,” said Bob Romeo (pictured on the home page), CEO of Anaqua. “We are excited over the opportunity to support one of the world’s most sophisticated IP operations.”
IBM has been the leading recipient of U.S. patents for 24 consecutive years, including a record-setting total of 8,088 patents granted to its inventors in 2016.
