in thread What is Enterprise Software?

You have brought up a very good aspect about enterprise software. Although at first glance, enterprise software is measured by a set of technical requirements (although not really that measurable ;-), it is certainly created with a clear and strong marketing purpose there.

Have said this, you have to give credit to some of those softwares, such as Oracle. Things like MySQL obviously does not provide the same level of strength (at least not currently).

But when a software is called enterprise, it is not just about techonology, it is about to charge companies that are at the enterprise level.

    BZZZZT! Try again. I wrote a reporting application that was backed by MySQL that returned complex reports against several million-row tables back in under a second. What's not enterprise-level about that?


    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

      What's not enterprise-level about that is that all you mention is speed of a query. There's much more to database than speed of a query.
