A list of every #innovation #collaboration #CMS #ideamanagement tool

Pretty ambitious title!


The batch of Web 2.0 tools available to help companies embrace the concept of Enterprise 2.0 is myriad. As I’ve reviewed the various offerings I noted it was difficult to find a comprehensive list. So this is my attempt at assembling a definitive list of tools in this space.

This list includes several sub groups: Innovation Systems, Innovation Consultants, Collaborative Platforms, Idea Management Tools, Content Management Systems, Community Building Systems, and Mind Mapping. Frequently the vendors listed below can fall into multiple categories.

For instance, Cognistreamer is a wonderful open innovation system and collaboration platform. It has usefulness as an idea management tool and it also has content management attributes. Lastly it is used to build an internal social community. They could have been listed in any or all of those categories. I picked one.

If I missed any vendors you feel should be on this list, write a comment or send a note to ron@shulkin.net and I’ll add them to the list. If any vendors feel I mis categorized them, let me know and I’ll move your listing. I tried to use the descriptions given by the vendors themselves, but if any vendor would prefer a different blurb, send it along and I’ll swap it out with what I’ve written.  I've already changed several listings and added a few since the first publish point.

March 10, 2010 update.  I've added at least a dozen vendors since first publishing this list.  I probably need to add a new category.  There are a bunch of vendors who offer on line idea slash solution brokering that I have listed in other categories.  We'll see as I continue to get suggested updates.  Also several vendors have clarified their descriptions and have asked to be moved into different categories.  I'm happy to accommodate such requests and have done so. 

March 23, 2010 update.  Several new companies have asked for their offerings to be added to this list and it has been my pleasure to add them.  This list has been re-posted on a number of sites worldwide including a Portugal doctorate program syllabus.

May 13, 2010 update.  About 200 people a week look at this list which is truly remarkable.  Vendors write virtually every week asking their name be added, changed, clarified or moved.  Viewers from over 30 countries have seen this.  If you have any input just send me a note please. 


My goal is to have a comprehensive list and not to make judgments or express preferences.

At the end of this very long list is a bunch of links to others who have attempted similar lists. Others have assembled “white label social networking software” lists. There are some very good blogs on Innovation, on Collaboration and on Idea Management. Gartner, Forrester and Wainhouse are in the business of making recommendations along with their lists.

My apologies if I made any errors. Again, just make a comment or shoot me a note and I’ll make corrections as rapidly as possible.

Innovation, Collaboration, Idea Management is a very exciting milieu for corporations. This new, open environment can enable professionals and other smart people to be productive in whole new ways. The following vendors have the vision required to develop tools that are useful, easy to use, and likely to produce exciting results.

BTW, IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING AN IDEA MANAGEMENT TOOL FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION YOU SHOULD CONSIDER JOINING THE ONLY IDEA MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION GROUP ON LINKEDIN!  CLICK HERE.

R. Todd Stephens has a blog covering Web 2.0 technologies and has a list here of 400 software tools labeled Web 2.0.   It's a long list, but there are no links and doesn't seem to be replicated below.

JULY 2010 UPDATE:  I continue to get requests to add new offerings who I may have missed initially.  Still others have joined the fray with the increased focus on innovation the business world is experiencing.  I also still get thank you notes for assembling this list, so I'm gratified to learn this continues to be a useful resource to those exploring the subject.  In June of this year, after looking closely at the list below, seeing demonstrations of many of the software products and interviewing for a position at just shy of a dozen...I joined the CogniStreamer group as their VP of North America.  I really believe CogniStreamer has an exceptional idea management software tool and I spend my days introducing it to those seeking a solution.  CogniStreamer is the innovation backbone for dozens of organizations throughout the world.  It is a collaborative tool providing Organizational Engagement and a scientifically driven idea management tool providing Strategic Guidance and, most importantly, valuable ideas, products and solutions for those who use it. They have pioneered the use of Persuasive Design to get your team engaged...you should see it.   As your search continues please feel free to contact me for a more in depth discussion of your needs.

Also Geoff Zoeckler has done a nice job reviewing several software offerings.  He takes an in depth look at his favorite top five here.

    Hi Ron,

    thanks for the comprehensive list - a lot to explore. I'm not sure into which category to put our idea management and innovation community solution - the HYVE IdeaNet which is being used within companies such as Daimler and Swarovski as well as for idea contests and open innovation platforms for external stakeholders.

    Thanks for the nice list!

    3/5/09 Update. Thanks to input from readers and vendors I've added a number of new entries including those listed below plus CFI Syllab, Sopheon,, Incentive, InnoCentive. Also I've clarified the descriptions of several others at the request of the vendor's representative. Happy to continue to update as I get feedback.

  • Ron Shulkin 4 years ago

    Oddly enough, I've noticed the Google algorithms for ad placement work pretty good with a list like this on the page. A number of companies in this space keep popping up in the Google ads on the right hand column with offerings like those listed. If those vendors or other experts reach out, great, I'll add them to the list. But for once, I'm recommending readers check out those ads.

  • Ken Plumley 4 years ago

    Hi Ron,

    Correction: Creator Studio™ software by CompXpress, Inc., should be listed under Innovation Software Systems.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Ron,

    Here from BrainBank. Thanks for this list - really great, really comprehensive industry resource. One important point, though: BrainBank is a full end-to-end SaaS innovation management software platform, not just "suggestion programs built on web service technology". In fact our specialty is post-ideation workflow management once the innovation reaches the active stage. I believe we should be under the first section, "Innovation Management Systems".

    Thanks again!

    Ron, I agree with you. Sometimes when you are a student it's difficult to organize yourself. You always should count money and your time. You made a great tips. I learned a lot, especially I like MindGenius . To my mind it's very important to have a curriculum. Sometimes I am an unorganized, to be more I try to use free mind mapping. It helps me to organize my thoughts, make my mind more clearly.
