What is an Enterprise Application?
Enterprise application, enterprise app, enterprise software, and finally, enterprise application software (EAS) are all commonly used phrases to describe applications — or software — that a that a business would use to assist the organization in solving enterprise problems.

Enterprise applications are designed to be deployed across a variety of corporate networks, intranets or the Internet and also meet strict requirements for security and administration management.
Unlike consumer or small business applications, which are used for a specific business function (e.g. accounting software or a graphics program), an enterprise application provides business logic and supports an entire organization and all its departments, in an effort to lower costs and improve both productivity and efficiency in the enterprise.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
Business Intelligence (BI)
Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)
Enterprise Content Management
Enterprise Messaging Systems (EMS)
