The future of the enterprise database – comprehensive information in real time
Infinite use cases
The concept of webAI
This is how webAI can be used
The application purposes of webAI are unlimited. We give you some examples
Real-time market analysis
- Function: We permanently scan millions of company websites and use AI systems to analyze the activities of companies with regard to their skills, technologies used, as well as products and services offered. In this way we generate market information for our customers in real time.
- Benefit: Identification and filtering (shortlisting) as well as matching of relevant companies according to the individual criteria of our customers, trend and technology diffusion analyses.
Analysis of corporate networks
- Function: We permanently scan millions of company websites and record the names of other companies as well as hyperlinks to their websites. We evaluate these relationships automatically and thus map regional and international company networks.
- Benefit: Mapping of companies to company networks, identification of central players, internationalization analyses, investigation of partner, cooperation and competitor networks.
Evaluation of companies
- Function: With our intelligent analysis systems, we evaluate the content of company websites and their technical framework. Based on this information, we calculate scientifically proven (see publications) and easy-to-interpret indicators, for example on the innovativeness of a company or its degree of digitalization.
- Benefit: Identification of innovative companies and regional innovation systems.
Individual webAI analyses
- Function: We adapt our dynamic analysis models to the specific questions of our customers. This enables us to provide fast and reliable answers to urgent questions.
- Benefit: Comprehensive and timely processing of individual questions. For example, within a few days we have developed a reliable system for forecasting the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on 1.2 million German companies. (press)
