What is enterprise management system?
Enterprise Management System (EMS) or just Enterprise System (ES) is in a narrow meaning a software package that a large company or organization (enterprise) uses for their routine. Such systems support geographically dispersed IT infrastructures with many different processes needed to be maintained at the same time. Usually, EMS contains several pre-installed software and apps that everyone in a company can use as a corporate tool for cross-department collaboration.
Most EMS solutions include solutions that can support all the core business areas. Sales, Customer Relations, HR, Project management and others. Enterprise Management Solutions are different from those suitable for small and medium-sized organizations. However, there are some tools designed to support your business at any scale, like Google Workspace.
Usually, the Enterprise Management System is a package or set of tools that different departments use. They form one neat connected infrastructure that allows people within the company to easily share their data no matter what group they belong to. An even better way is to have one flexible app that every group within one large enterprise can tune to cover their needs.
The difference between EMS and EPM?
Sometimes, the terms Enterprise Management Systems and Enterprise Project Management (EPM) may be used interchangeably but they have a very different meaning. EPM solution may be a part of EMS but in most cases, EMS will include more software. On rare occasions, the EPM tool will form the whole EMS, mostly at the early enterprise stages.
