Phase I: Fueling Innovation with bEVCurrent.

What is Fueling Innovation?

In February, 2018 Value Innovations launched its weekly report, bEVCurrent.

Fueling Innovation with bEVCurrent.          Design: Kreation By Designs


bEVCurrent uncovers the “Top 3” and “Top 4-10” headlines impacting the 6 Transformation Axes bringing seismic change to the global auto industry.

After 6 months, bEVCurrent had generated 72 “Top 3” headlines captured on subjects ranging from #Autonomousvehicles to #ElectricVehicles (#bEVs), from #OmniChannelRetail to Mobility as a Service (#MaaS) and #ConnectedCars to #Fleets.

Phase II: Fueling Innovation taken to next level using TMS Software.

In  June, 2018, the #iTRANSFORM team took #bEVCurrent to the next level by adding the capability to capture and text mine twitter using Text Mining Solutions’s (TMS) proprietary software. By capturing the latest relevant information across a broad spectrum of topics,  fueling innovation provides users with real time “news you can use.”


The #iTRANSFORM and #bEVCurrent team working with Steve Brewer, the Founder and Managing Director of Text Mining Solutions, Ltd. generated lists of #users (Organizations) and #hashtags to process tweets. For the period June 11 through August 11, TMS processed 5.2 million tweets and with the help of text mining, reduced this to 31K “Relevant Tweets” which were saved in the TMS database. Using a set of search criteria, Users can Text Mine these tweets to answer key questions from marketing, new business development and R&D teams relating to innovation, thereby Fueling Innovation.

Progress to date.

Most countries in the world, with the exception of third world countries, have posted or retweeted tweets relevant to the global auto industry since June 11, 2018.
