This is nothing more than a buzz word (term?) used to attract the
attention of Cx0s.
" On the way home from the meeting last night there was a discussion of
" desktop computing in a business environment using GNU/Linux.
" At one point I said that a certain component of a proprietary software is
" not robust enough for enterprise level demands. I was corrected by being
" told it was a buzzword, which to a certain extent I agree with. It got me
" thinking that I didnt have a handle on what this word implies. Which I
" think is a reflection that there is not any quantitive analysis to give this
" buzzphrase meaning.
" I would like to try to bring some kind of meaningful definition to this
" phrase or redefine it. So I have a few questions.
" What would define enterprise level computing?
" Is it the amount of CPU cycles a workstations uses?
" How does the type or amount of applications a workstation runs play a role?
" How do the amounts of networked computers play a role in this definition?
" How does the implementation of a server play a role in this?
" How does network load play a role in this?
" A home business can have two computers and maybe a server, they can have all
" the applications they need on those machines. But system and network load
" may be inconsequential in comparison to even a small corporation. Still the
" small business' existence may rely wholly on this handful of networked
" Certainly the cost of purchasing and licensing proprietary software plays a
" role in the perception of 'enterprise level' computing.
