  • It is a product that is packaged, marketed and sold independently (that is, not offered as part of a bigger suite or offering).
  • The primary use of the product as advertised in marketing material and as demonstrated in actual use is for supporting general collaboration and social interaction; its use is not limited to a specific industry or business process (such as project management, learning or training).
  • There are at least 50,000 users (seats) in total in production, and at least three named customers, each with 1,000 or more users (seats).

    • Document sharing: ability to upload, store, organize and share documents.
    • Discussion forums: support for a persistent environment to post questions and answers or to have general discussions.
