OpenideaL Integrated Innovation Management Platform (I2MP) enables organizations to create and streamline their innovation initiatives. We define "innovation" as a long-term multidimensional effort combining product, service, process and business models. Our software incorporates the best-of-breed methodologies for framing, identifying and executing strategic innovation initiatives throughout their entire lifecycle. OpenideaL framework also enables to match, filter and prioritize initiatives according to Product-Market fit (tactical) while maintaining the strategic alignment.
“A decade ago, people would say innovation management is an oxymoron, innovation is random, it just kind of happens. People recognize now that it is a discipline” Scott Anthony, Innosight.
Discovering market unmet needs require a unique approach. Nowadays it's good to be in the innovation management business which has emerged as a core competence firms need to incorporate in order to survive and grow. More and more firms appoint a Chief Innovation Officer while each major accounting, consulting, design and advertising agency develops a dedicated "Innovation & Transformation" practice. However, just like "Operations" and "Marketing" in the early 90's, this discipline is fragmented across and between several corporate functions and is still regarded as an "art" instead of "science". While operations/ marketing matured into integrated ERP/CRM systems I2MP is consolidating and bridge the various gaps into a holistic data/ process-driven approach.
