enterprise framework

A complete environment for developing and implementing a comprehensive information system. Enterprise frameworks provide pre-built applications, development tools for customizing and integrating those applications to existing ones as well as developing new applications. They may also provide a workflow component. Frameworks such as ERP and CRM are available for business functions such as order entry, inventory and payroll, while frameworks exist for specific industries such as health services and insurance.

Comprehensive and Flexible
There are many software packages for particular functions and industries, and "enterprise framework" may be added to a title as a marketing buzzword. However, an enterprise framework implies a comprehensive, soup-to-nuts solution. It also implies flexibility rather than relying only on a fixed set of options. See application framework and ERP.
