What exactly is SAP?

What exactly is SAP?

What exactly is SAP?

Please explain to me what exactly SAP is. Is it a company or a technology? If someone manages SAP, are they using a specific vendor product or do many vendors have SAP solutions?

Thanks for the help!

RE: What exactly is SAP?

For are start, Google and Wikipedia are your friends,
e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAP

Pay special attention to the first three lines in section 'In computing and technology'

simply speaking, SAP is a complicated system to support all operations, including Finance, Manufacturing, Logistics, etc, of an enterprise.

In addition, SAP represents a standardized sophisticated business operation. Implementing SAP is a kind of reengineering of a company.
