Some information here and other data there, so employees often have difficulty figuring out relationships among different elements. MindManager was designed to help users make such connections and it has been enhanced with support for the latest Microsoft applications.MindJet announced MindManager version 9, which offers users a way to visually brainstorm concepts; organize information; develop actionable strategies and project plans; and communicate results. The latest release includes a number of enhancements. With MindManager Slide Show, employees can create and present a series of PowerPoint slides based off of map, tree, or organizational chart layouts. Also individuals can assign priorities, filter information based on priorities, and drag and drop content from Microsoft Outlook. In addition, the product, which costs $349, now exports files to Microsoft Project.

Microsoft has been a key player in this space and has recently improved its Project program.

In addition, the company has been touting its integration with various Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office 2010. As a result, small and medium businesses, in certain industries, say consulting, may find the product useful.
