Wednesday Word: April 21, 2010

Wednesday Word is an OCDQ regular segment intended to provide an occasional alternative to my Wordless Wednesday posts.  Wednesday Word provides a word (or words) of the day, including both my definition and an example of recommended usage.



Definition – whereas “enterprisification” is a slang term used to describe scaling or otherwise evolving a technology or service to the point of being able to handle enterprise-level needs, enterpricification is simply increasing the price of a non-scalable or otherwise limited technology or service to the cost usually associated with an enterprise-class solution.

Example – “In a rare moment of honesty, the CTO of Acme Software admitted today that the only distinguishing characteristic of the recently released enterprise edition of their product is enterpricification.”
