SMEs segment to record a higher market share in 2020
The rising usage of cloud for the deployment of gamification solutions has led to the increasing adoption of these solutions among Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).The gamification solutions are high in cost and are involved in nature.

However, the availability of these solutions on the cloud has reduced this problem of cost as cloud-based solutions are less expensive compared to the on-premises solutions.SMEs have to focus on their budget constraints; so, they prefer cloud-based solutions available in the market.

The SME criteria may also be based upon various metrics such as revenue generated and ownership structure.These organizations have one or more full-time employees dedicated to managing their data and IT infrastructure.
