When considering a new enterprise software it must do the following things well:

(1) Solve a mission critical or important problem for the organization cleanly, as close to completely as possible and elegantly (simplicity always trumps features).

(2) Have a well designed UX and intuitive learning curve (adding a bit of fun doesn't hurt either - to many "solutions" are downright boring to use!).

(3) Integrate as seamlessly as possible with existing solutions and be adaptable enough to accommodate new tools and business developments that come down the pike.
