Case Study: USPTO Makes Patent Data Searchable

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) manages a growing database of more than 6.7 million records but, until recently, searching those records was difficult. There were searches that even USPTO employees couldn’t do without engaging a developer to concoct a specific query for them.

As this case study details, USPTO transitioned from an outdated database system to an open-source data analytics platform to make results searchable and data analysis easier for users.
