I am using SharePoint Server 2010 and we do have Enterprise licenses.

But what feature AND WHERE must be turned on in order to show the Business Data Web Parts like in the image below. Something tells me some feature somewhere in CA must be turned on?

Business Data

You should enable the "SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features" at the site collection level. You can find the "Site collection feature" management link on the Site Actions>Site Settings page under the section "Site Collection Administration".

In case if you run in to an issue of Missing Business Data Web Part in SharePoint 2013 On Perm Version and Activating SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features feature didnt help , it could very well be a case of missing license. Refer this article
