Open Source Innovation Manager

Hi all,
We have the idea to develop an open source innovation management system like uservoice, ideascale, brightidea etc.
It will be a site where organisations and people can share challenges and help each other to realise them.

Im new on Plone, but browsing through the manuals and youtube clips it would be not such hard by plone(hopefully :-))

Looking to what we want; Creating challenges (public or private). Be able to engage people to bring in ideas.

Vote moments by different evaluation teams. Be able to use a new valuta to set points on ideas etc..

I was wondering if some of you could give me a right direction to start. Should we start with plone and using pages?
Is saw there are already some sort of poll modules. I was playing with plominio as well! Should we take this path?
Maybe someone knows already a nice beginning?

Idea is to make it complete open.

Any help appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
Goosie

Wrong tool. Plone is a CMS and unlikely the right choice for such a project. Too large, too heavy, too slow...go for something different.

Thanks, I research further, Drupal has now my attention.
Thanks again

it wouldn't be hard to implement the functionality in plone, but your usecase is not really content management driven. plone is mainly a CMS. i agree with @zopyx, you'd probably happier with a custom made solution, tightly fit to your requirements instead of adapting an existing system like plone, where you have to cut 80% of it's functionality.
i'd do it with pyramid + some fancy database as a backend + javascript only on the frontend.

Drupal is likely also the wrong tool. It's a CMS also.

If you want to make something more like an database application than a content based website and you want it to be part of a plone site, my recommendation is Plomino. http://www.plomino.net/

You should take a look at the work of the Plone Intranet Consortium, which
seems to satisfy many of your needs.

We recently launched our site: http://ploneintranet.com.
We don't have a demo yet.

However, for your specific needs you should also have a look at
Nova-Ideo by Ecreall
https://github.com/ecreall/nova-ideo

It is more or less exactly the innovation brainstorming tool you were
asking for.
See demo at: https://demo2.nova-ideo.com/

We're looking at integrating this into ploneintranet, but you can
already use it in any normal Plone site.
