Enterprise 21 can be deployed in thin-client mode, thick-client mode, or as a combination of these methods using any ODBC-compliant database. Due to Enterprise 21’s scalable design, small and mid-market manufacturers and distributors can implement and continue to run Enterprise 21 as their businesses grow and evolve over time.

Deployment Methods


Manufacturers and distributors can access Enterprise 21 in a variety of methods including thin-client mode, where the system would run on an application server; thick-client mode, where the system would run directly on desktop and laptop computers; or as a combination of these approaches. The system can also be accessed via the Internet or deployed in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.

Database Options


The Enterprise 21 ERP software suite can be deployed with any ODBC-compliant database. Most commonly, TGI’s customers elect to deploy Enterprise 21 on Microsoft SQL Server, Informix, Oracle, or IBM DB2. The chosen database management system can be run on any associated supported database server technology, including Microsoft Windows, UNIX, Linux, or IBM OS/400.

Application Options


In thin-client mode, organizations would typically run the Enterprise 21 system on Windows Server-based application servers. Application access can be performed by any device which can connect to and run applications on these servers through a browser or remote desktop connection. Typical access devices include Windows-based systems, Mac OS-based systems, thin-client appliances, and mobile devices. In thick-client mode, Enterprise 21 runs on Windows-based and Mac OS-based devices.
