We need to be able to collaborate across different organizations, and generally the tools we need are a mash-up of CRM, project management suite, and social networking, along with a public-facing wiki for groups to share documentation and resources.
I thought I'd share my research process, since I know many organizations who would also like a solution to this problem. Below are the tools I am currently researching, with the goal of bringing a proposal to our team next Friday, January 19.
Do you work in a community that has a good online collaboration setup? What do you use and why do you like it? Please let me know.
Decentralized Collaboration Platforms:
Features we need: Profiles that are searchable by: role, industry, interest...
CrossPollinators - local organization matchmaking
Etouches - event registration and networking
ProFinda - very API integratable :)
Pathable - event networking
Brella - event networking
Bizzabo - event networking
Huddle - document collaboration
We currently use Slack
Github - collaborative software development tool
Aragon's wiki design is my favorite so far (apparently it's via Github). We might go with them for our decentralized global governance.

I also like this layout, and their company structure: Weco
General Resources for Open Value Networks
Good overview of commons based peer production
Great open value network focussed wiki
Amazing wiki on Open Company formats
