Capterra - The Enterprise Software Center
The term "enterprise" is meant to include all types of organizations, including large and small companies, public or private, as well as government institutions, schools, associations and other non-profits. Enterprises rely heavily on information technology to streamline their operations, increase revenue, and take advantage of new opportunities generated by the Internet.
Information Technology can be divided into three categories – software, hardware, and consulting/services. Software is the driving force behind the use of information technology, while hardware (desktops, laptops, handheld devices, servers, networking equipment) and consulting/services (systems integrators, application service providers) are extensions of the software industry. Enterprises have two choices – they can create their own software or they can use software created by software vendors, of which there are thousands. Increasingly, enterprises are choosing the latter of the two and the market for enterprise software has grown to over $200 billion annually.
Capterra aims to simplify the complex process of selecting enterprise software by providing online tools that assist software buyers from beginning to end. Second, Capterra aggregates each of the different sources of software research, analysis and news so that buyers have all of the information that they need in one location.
