IBM – 21 years of patent leadership

IBMers were granted a record of 6,809 U.S. patents in 2013 , the 21st consecutive year IBM has led in U.S. patent issuances – and third year in a row of more than 6,000. This year’s total is more than the combined totals of Amazon, Google, EMC, HP, Intel, Oracle/SUN and Symantec. Many of these patents are in strategic areas-–such as IBM’s Watson, cloud computing, Big Data analytics and the new cognitive computing era.
