Adding Innovation Mgt to SharePoint
Innovation and Idea Management are becoming key components to any organization's business strategy. The best ideas don't always come in perfectly coordinated business strategy sessions. They come as grassroots efforts, sometimes from the people you least expect.

Functionality included with Spigit integration includes:
- Dashboard containing real time activity updates, employee contributions and the hot topics based on user voting
- Single Sign on authentication using Active Directory
- An advanced analytics engine with customizable criteria
- Workflow to manage idea stages and graduation, role-based permissions
- User reputation scoring
- Incentives to contribute that include both internal and external stores
