Software Vendors that provide Community Software

There are over 100+ software vendors providing products and applications to help companies. Here is a partial list by focus and type of community. The list is compiled based on the assumption that they provide more than just forums since Wikipedia has a large list of discussion board providers. This is primarily a list of Business community providers. We will focus on Social Networking providers later. A detailed analysis of capabilities, vision and direction on each is being compiled after detailed interviews with each of the companies.
