Motio, Inc v. BSP Software LLC, Brightstar Partners, Inc., and Avent, Inc.

Representative Claim

  1. In a general purpose computer, a method for providing automatic version control to a business intelligence system, comprising:creating an initial version of a business intelligence artifact in the business intelligence system, wherein the business intelligence artifact is a user-authored object that produces output when the business intelligence artifact is executed in the business intelligence system, and wherein the business intelligence artifact is selected from the group consisting of:a report specification and an analysis cube;providing an automated agent that interfaces with the business intelligence system to provide automated version control to the business intelligence artifact; the automated agent independently performing the steps of:automatically storing the initial version of the business intelligence artifact with a version control system;
    detecting a request to the business intelligence system to modify the initial version of the business intelligence artifact to create a subsequent version of the business intelligence artifact that includes the requested modification; and automatically storing the subsequent version of the business intelligence artifact in the version control system.

Posture:

Defendant motion for summary judgment.

Abstract Idea: Yes

“Maintaining versions of electronic documents.”

Something More: Yes

“It is the provision of this automated agent to solve the problem of a business intelligence system lacking native version control that amounts to significantly more than a patent on the idea of maintaining versions of electronic documents itself.”
