I'm going to go out on a limb here, and probably start sawing it off.

"Enterprise Software" is market-speak for the type of software that people used to run on mainframes: databases (anybody remember RAMIS II?), email, payroll, inventory control, etc. Largely, the applications that were accessed via COBOL, by people sitting at 3270 terminals.
