What is Enterprise software?

iunknown.com: What does “Enterprise” mean?

John Lam tries to define “Enterprise” software. One aspect of his definition is:

Enterprise applications are used by more than one person concurrently

This seems to be a pretty broad statement, IMO. Our two outside salespeople share a sales database. Does this mean it’s an “enterprise” application?

I think the term “enterprise” should also include a size component. Architecturally, though, I suppose the issues may be the same whether it is two users or 2000 users.
