  1. real time collaboration

    Innovation Management, that is a new buzz word? what is really different from the collaboration under the cover?

    Nice comparison – but i think your list is a bit confusing.

    Not only because you left us out (Qmarkets idea management), but because these 4 don’t really compare with each other – they are 4 representatives of 4 groups of innovation platforms.

    Each one of the vendors in your list offers something different to customers, and as such – customer should first identify what they are looking for.

    – One offers Customer/consumer communities, with a main focus of offering their own available community
    – One offers a very comprehensive enterprise social software solution, but has no real focus on innovation or providing clear ROI from an innovation process

    – One offers an end-to-end idea management solution – this is where companies like Qmarkets fits in as well

    – The last offers a combination of the previous two, somewhere in the middle

    So I would recommend to customers to first decide what they want to solve – and then look at the players in that category.

    Thanks Noam, I believe that was my point as well.

    Again, nice comparison Mark !
    Would you consider to share it on socialcompare.com ?
    It could be great (FYI: you can save a snapshot of your initial version and then leave it opened for community/collaborative updates…we keep history changes… like Wikipedia).
    It is also possible to embed a custom design of your table.
