A sophisticated roles and permissions schema combined with a multi-language supported user interface will give you the scalability you need for a broad and successful adoption.
When it comes to support and feedback a well thought through end user experience is essential and differentiates a mature player on the market from a new market entrant. ITONICS offers ITIL best practice support processes in order to fully engage all tool’s end users.
In order to smoothen your colleagues' user experience with the ITONICS solution you can streamline and simplify the login process by integrating your existing identity provider (SAML 2.0 or others) via single sign-on (SSO). Your colleagues will not need to login with username and password anymore but are logged-in automatically already. Our professional service team will guide and instruct your IT department on the one-time configuration that is necessary to configure standard protocols such as SAML or Kerberos as well as other proprietary methods that your IT department might use.
In addition, it is possible to synchronize the full organizational details of each colleague with the user attributes in the ITONICS solution in order to further map your colleagues to specific user roles or user groups as well as contextual information that affects visibility and rating perspectives throughout the ITONICS solution. You will decrease the administrative effort required for maintaining access control of new, existing and former colleagues.
Regardless of your company’s hosting strategy (cloud-only vs. no-cloud) ITONICS fulfills the state-of-the-art industry standards when it comes to information security and data privacy and protection. ITONICS partners with the most reliable and secure hosting providers in order to ensure our customers data safety and security. With our managed hosting approach (Software-as-a-Service) your ITONICS solution can either be hosted in a shared or private server environment.
If you prefer deploying the ITONICS solution on your own infrastructure (on-premise) our IT department will gladly guide you through the setup and installation process as well as support on the continuous deployment of software updates throughout the customer lifecycle.
The integration of already existing and established information systems and business applications is key to a connected and scalable innovation management approach. Every organisation has specific and individual requirements to integrate existing third-party applications. Keeping data visible and transparent at all times fosters decision-making and improves cross-functional collaboration. Learn more in this flyer.
In general, ITONICS offers an extensive, secure and well-documented API, that enables you to retrieve information from and update information on the ITONICS solution, in order to define and implement your individual integration requirements. This for instance could include the integration of ITONICS data into your corporate search engine in order to further promote and increase engagement of the ITONICS platform. Integrated third-party applications could update the latest project status information or submit new technologies, inspirations or ideas from several different channels. This fosters the aggregation and connection of all relevant information on the ITONICS platform for better transparency and collaboration.
As an addition to ITONICS’ project portfolio management capabilities many clients integrate in existing third-party project management tools such as Atlassian Jira or your proprietary project management solution in order to further manage planned and ongoing projects in more detail.
Any project updates (e.g. status, budget, priority of staffing) are being synchronized between the different platforms.
It is essential to have a comprehensive and holistic view of all active and inactive engagements with partners, suppliers, start-ups and any other organizations throughout your organization. Knowing ‘who’ is in contact with ‘whom’ about ‘what’ is probably the most important asset an organization can transparently provide to all involved parties.
Connecting internal expertise in the ITONICS solution with external partners in CRM tools like Salesforce or Hubspot can give you the advantage of outperforming the competition and boost your innovation capabilities to a new level.
Data quality and data consistency are both key to a data-driven and more reliable decision-making process. By integrating to data aggregators like Crunchbase, Pitchbook or craft.co, company profiles can automatically be updated with the latest data.
Integrations into existing collaboration tools such as Yammer, Microsoft Teams or Slack help you to harness existing awareness to increase user engagement by proactively providing recent activities within the ITONICS solution, making sure everyone is up-to-date with your latest innovation activities.
Integrating the ITONICS solution into existing Intranet portals and corporate search engines such as SharePoint or Microsoft Teams smoothen your colleagues adaption to the ITONICS solution via well-known and familiar entry points.
Depending on the set user permissions you can promote the latest research from your trend and technology scouts, keep all involved stakeholders up-to-date about ongoing innovation activities or announce upcoming events and innovation challenges through the already established channels in order to have a broader reach.
Further analysis and more detailed reporting is usually very individual and use case-driven. Product usage can be automatically tracked with Google Analytics or Matamo (formerly Piwik) in order to justify and prove the system’s necessity and value. Visualizing data as individual and customer-tailored formats can be achieved by using integrations and export functionalities towards Tableau or Power BI.
The ITONICS RESTful API not only offers data endpoints but also analytical endpoints for further deep-dives and individual data slicing.
Extending your activities around environmental scanning, strategic foresight, ideation and portfolio management by integrating with well-known enterprise architecture tools like LeanIX, enables you to connect your activities around innovation execution in a structured, more detailed and flexible manner.
The transparent linkage between emerging technologies and established technology standards with the organization as well as the traceability between strategically relevant projects and dependencies or impacts on the existing architecture and IT infrastructure, will help you to successfully drive innovation as an integrated approach.
Most considerably big companies use some sort of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool in which other IT solutions need to integrate simply because SAP or Oracle (just to name a few) are deeply embedded and established in the existing process and IT landscapes.
ITONICS does not aim to replace those kinds of tools as the degree of detail is very high, but rather connects the results of innovation management like innovation activities and emerging technologies with existing capabilities such as ongoing projects and products in order to streamline and improve strategic planning.
