Blog: OpenText

Every June 27th, we celebrate Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) on MSME Day. These businesses are the backbone of our economy, driving innovation, creating jobs, and fostering vibrant communities. 

 At OpenText, we recognize the unique challenges faced by MSMEs. Often, MSMEs lack the resources of larger corporations, yet they need enterprise level integration to compete in the global marketplace. This is why we at OpenText continue to develop easy EDI integration solutions that are both affordable and flexible to the needs of MSMEs.  

What is MSME Day? 

In 2017, the United Nations General Assembly established MSME Day to raise awareness about the importance of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises. This day also provides a platform to recognize and celebrate the remarkable impact of MSMEs worldwide. The resolution was co-sponsored by 54 member states, representing over 5 billion people.  

Why celebrate micro, small, and medium enterprises? 

MSMEs make up a staggering 90% of businesses. They create over 70% of jobs and contribute to half of the world’s GDP. As such, MSMEs have a significant impact on the global economy. They play a crucial role in driving innovation, job creation, and in achieving sustainable development. By supporting and empowering MSMEs, we can harness their potential to create a more inclusive, resilient, and prosperous global economy. 

What are some of the unique challenges of MSMEs? 

Despite being the backbone of many economies, MSMEs face a multitude of challenges, including limited resources in workforce, technology, and infrastructure and access to affordable financing. These make it hard to compete with larger players. Many MSMEs haven’t been able to fully embrace digital technologies that could revolutionize their efficiency and customer reach. Finally, external disruptions like economic downturns, supply chain disruptions, and natural disasters pose a constant threat to their stability.
