I work for a company that markets "enterprise modeling" software and
software solutions for the "enterprise," so I'm saturated with this term.

My understanding is that "enterprise" refers to a company or organization
in the systems sense; i.e., as a collection of interrelated and mutually
supporting systems. For example, a manufacturing enterprise would include
the processes performed on the shop floor; the scheduling of those processes
by management; the systems for procuring and tracking parts for processes on
the shop floor; the management of the parts procurement process; the systems
for recording and making available data on parts, schedules, and orders; the
marketing of the products produced, etc. All of these processes and systems
need to be aware of what the other is doing and must share data as smoothly
and as rapidly as possible. That dynamic, big picture view of a company is,
in my understanding, an enterprise.

Hope that helps.
