Overlapping Needs of Enterprise and Small Business

There are similar needs and demands between the world of enterprise and the world of a small business. If you consider that an enterprise is often broken down into multiple divisions and within those divisions multiple departments, each department could be considered similar to a small business. Each department has a budget to prepare and financial responsibilities, specific goals to reach, and tasks and roles required to meet those goals. In some enterprises, each department has enough empowerment that it also determines the vision and direction for its group and chooses the technology tools to meet those goals. These department requirements overlap with similar demands in the small business but are also unique in their own right. In an enterprise, SBS can be deployed, but when it is, the software tends to be a department-specific solution detached from the overall infrastructure of the firm. SBS is not designed to be part of a bigger infrastructure solution; although, it can work with proper configuration in that model. The key to remember about SBS in an enterprise is that SBS is a round peg in a square hole when used as a solution for the much larger firms, and this creates problems that result in customizations to make it work. For the large enterprise it makes more sense to deploy a different solution.
