We are proud to present the next generation of the DataScouts application!
Besides a completely new look and feel, we have incorporated as much as possible the valuable feedback we received from our end users. DataScouts has not just changed in terms of look & feel, but the new DataScouts also offers a wide range of new capabilities to build ecosystem intelligence. DataScouts allows to visualize, explore and monitor a portfolio of companies, a creative ecosystem, an industry cluster or the competitive landscape of a corporate.
You will immediately notice the new layout of the application. DataScouts offers richer company profiles and a new way of exploring a directory of companies. The top left menu allows to easily switch between different interactive views of the ecosystem. All filters incl. the legend, keywords and tags are grouped on the left. The top navigation provides direct access to all companies profiles.
The powerful search capabilities allow to set multiple selection criteria and to visualize a portfolio of actors by using the interactive filters. Moreover, it is possible to combine the map or network view with the gallery or list view, allowing for a more complete ecosystem overview.
The actor’s full profile groups all available information about a member of the ecosystem and automatically places the most relevant information on top of the page. The labels on top of the profile indicate whether the profile’s data is publicly available and/or it is claimed by the owner of the profile. Editing an ecosystem profile now happens all in one go.
With the new version of DataScouts, admins gain flexibility and autonomy in setting up the configuration of the public ecosystem views. Admins will be able to see and edit the company profiles of all the actors in their ecosystem and play around with multiple parameters and views, while visitor will only see the information, company profiles and views an admin decides to publish.
As relationships are key in extracting ecosystem intelligence from your data, we have included the capability to add persons as actors and link products to companies. Persons include advisors, entrepreneurs, and key opinion leaders, which can be linked to organizations, allowing to visualize the interrelationships between the persons and organizations within your ecosystem. Moreover, the capability to distinguish a company from their projects and products, makes the concrete relationships in your ecosystem between persons, companies, and products clearer, allowing to extract more ecosystem intelligence!
We encourage you to start using DataScouts and discover its features. Create your own ecosystem and start exploring the companies that matter to your business. If you can’t wait, you can visit one of our public ecosystems:
