While at first blush it may seem that there is overlap between SharePoint and Accolade for innovation, that overlap is actually rather small.
Accolade is an Enterprise Innovation Performance solution from Sopheon specifically designed to support the end-to-end innovation management process lifecycle. It includes functionality for strategic innovation planning, roadmapping, idea and concept development, process and project management, resource planning and portfolio management.
Microsoft SharePoint is a general purpose solution for document sharing and archiving, team collaboration, task management, managing organizational workflow, and other capabilities typically used in a corporate intranet.
Accolade and SharePoint serve different purposes in the organization, yet used together can serve up innovation projects, processes and elements to a broader audience for even more powerful innovation management. This paper articulates the value each product offers and how they can be used together.
