3 differences between 'Small Business' and 'Enterprise'

Part A:

  1. Under the covers, a "Small Business" is usually run by a random collection of access databases and excel spreadsheets that are poorly implemented, terribly managed, and provide meaningless results.
  2. An "Enterprise" is the same thing, but includes a batch file which checks if the other systems have crashed, and then restarts them.

Part B:

  1. In a "Small Business" the random collection of access databases and excel spreadsheets are kept around because They Get The Job Done.
  2. In an "Enterprise" the random collection of access databases and excel spreadsheets are kept around because they are jealously guarded by cranky middle managers who treat them as the precious jewels of their tiny land-locked fiefdoms, deep within their meaningless cubicle kingdom.

Part C:

  1. In a "Small Business" the random collection of access databases and excel spreadsheets were written by the business owner, as he or she grew the business.
  2. In an "Enterprise" the random collection of access databases and excel spreadsheets were written by idiot-nephews of dysunctional middle managers and are maintained by spineless, highly-paid consultants who should know better and will be first against the wall when the next round of redundancies arrive.
