Enterprise computing is a buzzword that refers to business-oriented information technology that is critical to a company’s operations. Enterprise computing encompasses all the various types of enterprise software, including database management, relationship management and so on. Enterprise computing is usually seen as a collection of big business software solutions to common problems such as resource management and streamlining processes.
Enterprise computing is sometimes sold to business users as an entire platform that can be applied broadly across an organization and then further customized by users within each area. This means the analytics, reporting, database management and other applications are standard across the system, while the application packages being used and the data being accessed in each area will be different. In this sense, enterprise computing is a departure from finding single software solutions to specific business problems, such as inventory or accounting software. Instead, enterprise computing is intended to offer integrated solutions to these problems.
