SalesForce.com Releases Idea Management Solution

CNN Money reports that SalesForce.com has released SalesForce Ideas, SalesForce.com's Idea Management solution.

CNN Money highlight that:
Salesforce Ideas is the application behind salesforce.com's own live community IdeaExchange and the Salesforce-powered Dell IdeaStorm . . . made possible by Force.com Platform-as-a-Service . . . Salesforce Ideas is the power behind customer Dell's groundbreaking IdeaStorm (www.ideastorm.com), which launched in February of this year, as well as its employee website, EmployeeStorm.
Initial indications are that the software will have a "crowdsourcing" capability where communities can vote on ideas and the best ideas bubble to the top - and this capability can be exposed to market focus groups.

Thanks for the post Lauchlan!

You can find out more about Salesforce Ideas on our blog.

The other link you referenced is our IdeaExchange, which is an example of how we use the product to manage our customer's feature requests.

Dell also uses Salesforce Ideas. You can take a look at wwww.ideastorm.com. They have generated over 7k ideas and half a million votes in the last 6 months which is pretty amazing.
