Apple’s New Era Has Begun

Now Apple has set its sights on a much larger bite of the apple: enterprise services. It’s such a lucrative industry that Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, calls it the “mother of all opportunities.”

I Googled "enterprise services", but I don't understand these two complicated explanations.

What is Enterprise Services? - Definition from Techopedia

Definition - What does Enterprise Services mean?

Enterprise services is an over-arching term to describe an architecture combining engineering discipline and computer science to solve practical business problems. Enterprise services architecture generally includes high-level components and principles of object-oriented design employed to match the current heterogeneous world of IT architecture.

Techopedia explains Enterprise Services

The concept of enterprise services was created in 2002 by Hasso Plattner, the chairman of SAP AG. Enterprise services architecture includes layers of components aggregating data and application functions from applications, which creates reusable elements, which are also called modules. The components use enterprise services for communication. Enterprise services architecture minimizes the complexity of the connections among the components to facilitate reuse. The enterprise services architecture allows deployment of Web services to create applications within the current infrastructure, increasing business value.

Enterprise services architecture emphasizes abstraction and componentization, which provides a mechanism for employing both the required internal and external business standards. The main goal of enterprise services architecture is to create an IT environment in which standardized components can aggregate and work together to reduce complexity. To create reusable and useful components, it is equally important to build an infrastructure allowing components to conform to the changing needs of the environment.

    This would not be on topic for the main site as it is to do with company definitions and not computer hardware or software. – Mokubai Aug 11 at 10:24

    To answer the question: There is home computing and there are enterprise services. “Enterprise” means business/work systems. Home computing is one or more computers at a home. An enterprise system is — typically — software and/or hardware used in an office. But not just an office where it is a few more computers but rather larger scale infrastructure for storage, application access and even authentication. Think of it as the difference between owning a single family home and owning a multifamily apartment building. Needs are similar, but they way they are managed and delivered are different. – Giacomo1968 Aug 12 at 11:36

This would not be on topic for the main site as it is to do with company definitions and not computer hardware or software.

"What does word mean?" Or "How do I use words or phrase?" Would be on topic at English Language & Usage, but I suspect that defining company types would be off topic there and you would have to ask their meta.

It wouldn't surprise me if we didn't have a site for this type of question at all. Not all questions have a place at Stack Exchange.
