A challenge to visual mapping software developers

Visual Mapping expert Wallace Tait has thrown down a challenge to the developers of mind mapping software; namely to expand mind mapping software to include concept mapping and flowcharting.

Wallace Tait – Visual Mapper http://www.visualmapper.org/

As a consequence, I want to resolve “where does Microsoft Visio 2007 overlap with MindManager 7.0 Pro – what is missing in MindManager that Visio does better and vice versa? Does a business need both?”

I would love to hear from anyone who is using both Visio 2007 AND MindManager 7.0 Pro who could share any insights into the various overlaps / strengths / weaknesses of each package.

To put it bluntly, if a client said to me “I already use Visio 2007 why do I need MindManager 7.0 Pro?” (or vice versa), I want to be able to give them a useful insight / answer. Furthermore, I’d like to put the case to both software houses for the need for integration / overlap as appropriate.

Can you help? Do you already have this knowledge?

If you are using MindManager I would encourage you to join the NING forum where Wallace raised this discussion topic:- http://mindmappers.ning.com/forum/topic/show?id=968894%3ATopic%3A5405
