The enterprise system approach is defined by its evolution and major milestones of architectural planning. The ES architectures are multi-faceted solutions, hence it is defined in the scope of the enterprise organization architecture (EOA), enterprise functional architecture (EFA), enterprise processive architecture (EPA), enterprise information architecture (EIA), enterprise software architecture (ESA), enterprise network architecture (ENA), enterprise service architecture (ESA), business component architecture (BCA), enterprise information infrastructure (EII), and enterprise configurations. A composite ES architecture is presented as a transitional architecture, which is currently practiced by most enterprises. The near future of the ES approach will be rather limited to the ways of delivering ES’ applications within a framework of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and the cloud computing, which satisfies effective large-scale operations. The progressive process of organization/business virtualization and the urgent need for more sustainable enterprise development should lead to new development of enterprise systems.
