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.

The most important criteria is a well developed and smart/evolutive search engine. A lot of ECN are not use in companies because they return too many records or not the most relevant ones...
