    Very well written & researched article. I’ve been successfully implementing BrightIdea in Latin America, we developed the first-ever spanish language Webstorm. I would agree that their focus is in the complete lifecycle which is something I miss in other productos (what about Hype Innovation ?). Keep up the good work.

    Interesting article, and a nicely done comparison, but please don’t forget about BrainBank as an innovation management provider. Truth is, we were the first to market over 12 years ago.
    I truly believe that no other company understands the innovation process like we do. Spigit, Brightidea are nice tools, but when you dig deeper you’ll see that it was a collaboration platform, tweaked for innovation management, whereas ours was built from the start with innovation in mind.
