Technology monitoring has been a knowledge intensive and time-consuming task for IT managers or domain experts. Tech mining techniques can be used to mitigate these efforts. This paper proposes a technology monitoring framework based on tech mining techniques to facilitate the derivative of information and communication technology (ICT) roadmaps. With this framework, a tech mining engine is able to allocate the most relevant documents which describe a category of technologies. Domain experts were participated in a scan meeting to verify the generated roadmaps based on the selected cluster of documents. The draft roadmaps can be further articulated with domain experts' judgment for technology forecasting and assessment.
