enterprise IT (enterprise-class IT)

Contributor(s): Ivy Wigmore

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.
