With the rise of mobile devices, the number of mind mapping tools has risen in recent years, yet only a few should be considered enterprise-ready. Mind mapping tools have evolved from simple drawing tools into complex environments that include collaborative authoring, project management, quantitative model building, dashboards and integration with third-party tools, particularly Microsoft Office, the Google platform and various file sharing systems like Dropbox and Box.
The leaders in this market, Mindjet, Think Buzan, TheBrain and MatchWare (not covered in this report) have now advanced to the point that enterprises need to select tools that fit well with their infrastructure, security and collaboration models. Although mind mapping is often driven by personal preference, a proliferation of tools can result in information and knowledge exchange issues that are best avoided by standardizing on one tool, and if more than one is needed, tools that offer complementary capabilities.
