We had 27 responses to this question that mentioned 50 products (depending on how you define product).

These were :iCtye, Google Docs, Blackboard Wiki, Microsoft (Sharepoint, Outlook, Exchange), Ektron, Allette Systems (Pageseeder), EMC Documentum (eRooms), Kavi, Alfresco, Jive SBS, Telligent, OpenText Social Media, Lotus (Notes, Quickr, Connections), MindTouch, Atlassian (Confluence, JIRA), Salesforce, MediaWiki, Drupal, Edna, Blackboard, Sakai, BSCW, Matrix, Teamcenter, Windchill, Webex, IM, Sitescape (Novell), SAP, Socialtext, Traction, Novell Teaming, Govdex, Twiki, Intralogics, Drop Box, Skype, K2 BlackPearl, Joomla, Twitter, Yammer, DotNetNuke, WordPress, OpenCMS.

The number of products reviewed by each respondent is broken down below. Sharepoint was the most common product reviewed, appearing in 60% of responses.

Key takeaways:

  • This is a diverse market. There is no single market dominator but Microsoft making a serious play for Sharepoint to occupy this role.
  • This is a diverse market (again). Many of the companies on this list would not see themselves as competitors.
  • Is this even a single market at all?
  • Most respondents (74%) reviewed three products or less.
