enterprise IT (enterprise-class IT)
Enterprise IT, also known as enterprise-class IT, is hardware and software designed to meet the demands of a large organization. In comparison to consumers and small companies, an enterprise has greater requirements for availability, compatibility, reliability, scalability, performance and security, among other things.
"Enterprise-class" is not an official designation and there are no standards that vendors must conform to. Rather than relying on a claim that a product is "enterprise class," purchasers should ensure that it meets their organization's specific needs.
