Is your company an enterprise? The answer matters

Mark McDonald, Gartner Group: People talk about the ‘enterprise’ all the time, particularly in IT. There are enterprise solutions, enterprise architecture, enterprise portals, enterprise security, etc. In this context the term enterprise is more often meant to mean all encompassing, across business units or geographies, the whole of our business operations. Just because we say something is enterprise level that does not mean that it applies to the entire company. When that happens you have to ask yourself the question - are we an enterprise?
