Connecting People, Ideas & Problems surfaces the right Ideas to the right people at the right time. Its suite of tools leverages Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to identify related content that individuals cannot or do not find through manual processes. The recommendations do not try to select the ‘best’ or even the ‘preferred’ idea, but rather ensure that unexpected relationships are highlighted and not left to chance.

Curate a Corporate Memory of Ideas

Idea Spotlight is your Global Home for Ideas, meaning over time a pool of thousands, tens of thousands and potentially hundreds of thousands of ideas are being created, evaluated and implemented to solve a wide range of problems and create a stream of new opportunities.

As the volume of ideas grows, it become less efficient or even possible to manually make future connections between these ideas, whether implemented or rejected. helps solve that problem by highlighting unexpected relationships between content such as:

  • Technology that is being used in entirely different contexts with different results;
    • Similar problems that have been solved in different ways;
      • Solutions that have been developed in alternative, and in some cases, inconsistent ways;
      • Rejected Ideas that were not relevant or feasible for an original problem but can be the spark for a solution in a new context; and
      • General themes around content that Challenge Managers and Admins may want to investigate further.

      In addition to highlighting the relationships, provides feedback regarding the strength of the relationship and the shared content that creates the relationship.

      Explore Networks of Content provides a visual representation of the content relationships that allows individuals to trace the connections – both strong and weak – between People, Problems & Ideas. This encourages users to explore unknown content, break down information silos and collaborate across teams.

      Marketplace of Solutions

      An organisation can also use to power a marketplace of solutions that are connected to problems as they are presented, ensuring no solution or problem goes unanswered.

      Choose the options that are right for your organisation:

      • Idea to Idea – surface related Ideas to discourage duplicative projects and encourage collaboration.
      • Idea to Challenge – tap into your living library of Ideas to jumpstart a Challenge by identifying existing potential full or partial solutions.
      • Idea to People – drive individual recommendations based on distinct behaviours and content for a personalised experience for everyone.
      • People to People – recommend the right people to join a team or evaluate an Idea, taking advantage of the knowledge in your entire network.
