Mind mapping software provides tremendous value teams, helping them to projects along with great efficiency. Its value extends beyond the obvious applications like group brainstorming and project management into other valuable applications like knowledge management and consensus building/decision-making.
A number of recent developments have convinced me that 2009 is the year in which mind mapping software will break into the mainstream as a widely accepted business productivity tool. It has reached an “inflection point” where we will see more rapid growth than ever before. Here are the factors that I believe will drive this rapid growth.

Inspiration Software , the developer of the well-respected and widely used mind mapping program Inspiration, has just released the beta of a web-based version of its flagship product.
