An enterprise application (EA) is a large software system platform designed to operate in a corporate environment such as business or government. EAs are complex, scalable, component-based, distributed, and mission-critical. EA software is a critical component of any computer-based information system. Enterprise applications are designed to integrate computer systems that run all phases of an enterprise’s operations to facilitate cooperation and coordination of work across the enterprise.
Examples include CRM and business intelligence. Such software can be found in large industries, governments, retailers, hospitals, and departments such as sales, marketing, customer service, and finance, among others. Enterprise Applications (EA) are a software solution that provides business logic and tools to model entire business processes for organizations to improve productivity and efficiency.
