The Contribution of Enterprise Systems Enterprise systems (“ES”) consist of a wide range of software modules; each designed to integrate and combine data from a variety of information systems. The ultimate goal of an enterprise system is to maintain all company information in one location. These systems help different departments communicate as well. For example: if accounting is having troubles getting payment information from the front desk of a bank, an enterprise system can step in and maintain the payment information in a central database. One might think of an enterprise system as the ultimate organizer. Organization is not the sole purpose of [these] systems though.
