Enterprise Class

Definition - What does Enterprise Class mean?

Enterprise class is a buzzword that refers to applications that are designed to be robust and scalable across a large organization. There are no firm standards for what makes an application or platform enterprise class, but enterprise class applications are generally:

  • Open and compatible with existing databases and tools
  • Customizable for the needs of specific departments
  • Powerful enough to scale up along with the needs of the business using it
  • Secure from outside threats and data leaks

Techopedia explains Enterprise Class

Enterprise class is not an official certification given to software suites that pass specific tests. Instead, it is a marketing term that suggests that an application or platform is reliable and powerful enough to serve as a one-stop solution for companies of any size. As such, claims that a software package is enterprise class should be approached with some skepticism.
