i2Brain: The Visual Information Manager

i2Brain: The Visual Information Manager
http://i2brain.com/

i2Brain: The Visual Information Manager. A lot of information can be understood more easily in the form of a diagram than as a text. i2Brain helps you. i2Brain is a new type of software for visualizing information and its structure. Helps: 1) You solve problems more effectively; 2) You increase your creativity; 3) Your meetings and brainstorming sessions are more efficient; 4) You can understanding and explain complex material more quickly; and 5) You simplify and optimize your communication and waste less time. You can use i2Brain to: a) solve problems; b) collect information (brainstorm); c) visualize your “to-do” lists; d) plan a project; e) prepare reports, essays, seminars and articles; f) overcome the limitations of MindMapping®; g) learn multi-faceted information more easily (here’s an example using “Romeo and Juliet”); h) sort information visually, thereby helping you and others to understand it better. Here’s an innovative way of viewing history; i) communicate complex material; j) show and work on non-linear information in a form befitting its nature; and k) visualize your Skype contacts. i2Brain isn’t just another “MindMapping®” program. It is multi-dimensional. It visualizes your thoughts and plans in depth. Literally. What does multi-dimensional mean? Click here to see a short movie which describes this main argument for i2Brain. When you are planning a project, each activity has a priority. “Priority” is therefore a “dimension”. An activity has a “status” (working, finished, tested etc.). So “Status” is also a dimension. And so on. You can define up to 15 dimensions. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
