Are there any enterprise software companies that do UX well? What are some examples of enterprise software that nails the UX?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Each dimension of UX is different. One piece of software doesn't have the same challenges to overcome as another. A certain piece of software may have an overall, strong user experience, but they may not have had much to overcome, especailly in a specific area. The best examples are also relevant. – DesignerGuy Sep 13 '13 at 3:57
This sort of question isn't suited to a Q&A site as there is no correct answer. As per the help center section: "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page." – JonW Sep 13 '13 at 7:34

I think the people at fogcreek do a pretty good job given the type of software they develop. Another one that comes to mind is 37 signals because of the simplicity and ease of use. However, in general I have to say that enterprise level software are restricted by many business and technical requirements that will always result in usability put on a lower priority (at least for now).
