bCisive Online is a web-based decision-making and collaboration tool from Austhink Software. It follows on from our previous commercial forays into desk-top-based visual mapping software: the business-oriented bCisive desktop, and before that the argument-mapping-based Rationale.
In developing bCisive Online we aimed to make visual thinking and deliberation both simpler and more team-oriented. Probably the most striking innovation is a form of real-time collaboration. Multiple participants can collaboratively edit a map: remotely manipulated boxes fly around in near real-time, echoing multiplayer online games, while "control" (the ability to edit) is passed around in a disciplined fashion.
In this talk I would like to explain the motivation for introducing real-time collaboration, and its design and realisation in bCisive Online.
