The last decade has seen a major transformation in enterprise networking communications. As the telecom, computing and networking industries converge into the cloud, Foresight is well positioned to leverage on our deep expertise in these industries. We support cloud solution providers with a range of analytical services at the two critical junctures related to launching new cloud products and services:

Intellectual Property Analysis - a strong, well-balanced IP portfolio is critical to the success and protection of new products in the global and competitive cloud marketplace.  We provide a full range of IP valuation, strategy and litigation support services to help companies manage the IP underlying their products and services.

Economic Impact Analysis – as more corporations, developers and service providers adopt cloud solutions, there is often a need to demonstrate the economic benefits of these technological transitions.  We provide advanced Economic Impact studies to support the customer-facing activities related to the launch of cloud products and services.
