Enterprise WordPress? And what is “Enterprise”?

When I was about 21 years old and I was sitting in my first company, which I co-founded, my ideas about Enterprise were roughly as follows. It's the biggest hardcore that's only for those IT guys at the very top. It's extremely complicated and complex and it's all done through code and black screens.

Then I wanted to see what it meant to work in a corp. And then I really understood the meaning of the word Enterprise. The very opposite is true.

Enterprise is a tool that, if we omit the high-quality support that is a matter of course of such a name, is enormously simple in terms of IT skills of the people who control it. A simple, documented and yet very powerful tool that handles a lot of things.

I have been thinking about this for many years, and for many reasons, corporations and all quality companies need exactly such tools. We will now answer the question why.

The tool can be expensive to purchase. But the people who run it are much cheaper in the end than the top top programmers, who are now not ashamed to ask hundreds of thousands a month. The second point is substitutability. I can have more  cheaper and less technically capable people, they can be substitute each other, thus proving the simplicity of the tool and its overall usability.

Futhermore, Enterprise tools:

Log all activities in the system - so-called auditing
Can be easily connected to other tools using the now industry standard REST API
Can be connected to a central IAM - ie identity and access management
The data is represented in a graphical format - for example, for an integrated web firewall, it is immediately clear to administrators who is attacking the web and where
Handles hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of records in the database and, when properly implemented, can scale horizontally - so it can be spread across many servers that compute the application
Is modular, multilingual with the possibility of translations again through the administrator interface and filling out forms
Is not subject to a crazy license, which obliges the customer to constantly pay for any more complex change to just one specific supplier - that is, the interchangeability of suppliers is met here, which should be a clear point of risk management for each responsible IT manager.
Licensing allows easy deployment of system clones in individual regional branches of corporations and large enterprises
Do you think that WordPress does not meet any of the above points? Then write me and email and I will be happy to convince you of the reality of today's Enterprise world, where many large corporations use WordPress for their projects precisely because of these properties.
