This is mission critical for us, because we cumulate all customer data on our Matrix42 Accounts (ACS Access Control System). So all of our customers have an account and must have an account to submit an idea. We even would like to make the IDEAS itself and the IDEA Portal only visible to people that are auth by our Matrix42 Accounts ACS. if they have an account there and the flag "validated" then they can access, see and use ideas in the idea portal.
There is a general habit in Enterprise applications in Europe that the vendors sales forces look into the opponent vendor's idea portals and use the ideas of the other vendor to tell their prospects "look at this vendor, they just have feature A as an idea - we already implemented it"
we want to be transparent to our customers and would like to evolve our products to their needs. We also would like to let the community (all employees, customers, consultants and partners) drive our product together, but we don't want other vendors to use these great ideas against us
