Excess of probabilities of the elastic processes over the inelastic ones is a common feature of the resonance phenomena described in the framework of the random matrix theory. This effect is quantitatively characterized by the elastic enhancement factor F(β) that is the typical ratio of elastic and inelastic cross-sections. Being measured experimentally, this quantity can supply us with information on specific features of the dynamics of the intermediate complicated open system. We discuss properties of the enhancement factor in a wide scope from mesoscopic systems to macroscopic analogue electromagnetic resonators and demonstrate essential qualitative distinction between the elastic enhancement factor's peculiarities in these two cases. Complete analytical solution is found for the case of systems without time-reversal symmetry and only a few open equivalent scattering channels.
