in reply to What is Enterprise Software?

The term 'Enterprise software' has been abused (for long enough to confuse people) to sell things with the implied argument that 'you can't achieve your enterprise (i.e. b2b-level) software goals without this' usually with no justification for this even being offered.

The term is clearer when properly confined to its specific goals: It was coined in the late '80s at a time when someone had the idea that systems integration (hitherto occurring between departments of the same company) could be extended to include b2b-level systems integration. And that's all it is:

"enterprise software" is any software that provides or assists systems integration between several companies.

On that basis, Perl is enterprise software ;)
