An enterprise application is a business application, obviously. As most people use the term, it is a big business application. In today's corporate environment, enterprise applications are complex, scalable, distributed, component-based, and mission-critical. They may be deployed on a variety of platforms across corporate networks, intranets, or the Internet. They are data-centric, user-friendly, and must meet stringent requirements for security, administration, and maintenance. In short, they are highly complex systems.
Designing and developing such enterprise applications means satisfying hundreds or thousands of separate requirements. What's more, every development decision you make to satisfy each requirement affects many other requirements, often in ways that are difficult to understand or predict — and the failure to meet any of these requirements can mean the failure of the entire project!
Traditional development approaches such as coding from scratch or using disparate integration tools restrict teams who wish to rapidly build systems that enable them to differentiate their capabilities while automating complex business processes.
