SAP Intellectual Property Management

Can you keep track of rights and obligations, while developing, licensing, and distributing content in multiple formats, across multiple channels, on multiple devices?

Capgemini is helping media and entertainment (M&E) companies keep up with the complexities of managing intellectual property in a digital world, where content and delivery are connected, where revenues from traditional markets are declining, and where old business models are becoming increasingly irrelevant.

Our end-to-end IPM solution covers IP creation and ownership, relationships and contract management, royalty processing, and financial integration. It leverages collaborative methods for multi-platform creation and distribution and facilitating full protection of IP, while boosting exploitation and maximising revenue.

With Capgemini and IPM, an M&E company can:

  • Increase sales to broadcasters and distributors
  • Create more compelling and targeted consumer offerings
  • Use relevant, timely consumer analytics to guide sales efforts and marketing spend
  • Facilitate current contract management, while exploiting new opportunities
  • Coordinate cross-platform selling between business units/geographies

Better Return on Your IP Material and Marketing Investments

Capgemini has a commitment to the continuous evolution and adaptation of our IPM solutions for the marketplace. For example, Capgemini has collaborated with SAP on a new enhancement — SAP BusinessObjects Intellectual Property Rights Analytics (IPRA) — which greatly improves the visibility of rights availability and usage. Because IPRA “industrialises” best practices in visualising IP data management, this solution can make a significant difference to your bottom line. Pulling on data from IPM as well as content already in your enterprise IP systems, IPRA makes readily available critical key performance indicators (KPIs) organised into fundamental dashboards, providing a comprehensive, cross-functional view of how well the business is exploiting IP assets for growth and profit.
