Planbox is pleased to be listed as a representative vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Innovation Management as an Innovation Management solution vendor. Planbox was among the companies that Gartner invited to participate in its 2016 Innovation Management Market Guide research. Some key takeaways from the report are as follows.

The research highlights the importance of innovation for business success:

“Innovation is well-recognized as a contributor to business success, which in turn is stimulating interest in innovation management products.”
– Gartner, Market Guide for Innovation Management, 24 March 2016

And the strategic priority it is given in most organizations:

“Growth and innovation are consistently among the priorities of most organizations, and their importance is growing. In Gartner’s 2016 survey of CIOs, crowdsourcing and formal innovation management programs are two of the most impactful but least used (under 30% penetration) “bimodal IT” disciplines that can contribute to business success.”
– Gartner, Market Guide for Innovation Management, 24 March 2016

Accelerating innovation is seen as a key driver of maintaining a competitive advantage:

“Innovation acceleration is one of the most reliable and attractive routes to competitive differentiation. It can enhance new product and service development, transform operations internally, improve customer service and support externally, and even help to redefine an organization’s core business model.”
– Gartner, Market Guide for Innovation Management, 24 March 2016
