Combining innovative design with IT

There are endless possibilities for innovation. To create new ideas, one needs a collaboration platform. To implement them, a concept and resources. In large corporations, it is quite common to use dedicated innovation teams and future labs. However, most organizations lack resources, frameworks, and partners for such a task.
