Enterprises with less than 1,000 employees are considered under the SMEs segment. Maximum productivity and reduced costs are crucial factors for these enterprises, as they have limited budgets to keep track of crowdsourced ideas. Hence, these enterprises take advantage of the freely available public cloud storage or limited on-premises innovation management solution.
