SAP

We will describe what SAP is, because many people get confused and call SAP to everything. SAP SE is a German company that has different programs.
For example, SAP R/3 is currently called "SAP ERP" and is focused on large companies, while SAP Business One is to small and medium ones.

HANA is a database platform for real-time information.

An ERP is a computer system that covers an entire company, used to manage all its resources and sharing the necessary information between the different departments in a single database.

The most common is to associate SAP with these ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), because it is an information system that allows to manage different actions of a company, especially those that are related with production, logistics, inventory, shipping and accounting.

Currently, SAP is the world leader in the ERP market.

What is a SAP system:

The main characteristics of SAP could be summarized in the following concepts:

  1. It is a made to measure system
  2. Modular
  3. On-line information
  4. Information hierarchy
  5. Integration with many areas of the company

SAP is made up of different individual applications called modules. Each of these focuses on a certain area and provides functions to support it in a flexible way. The SAP applications or modules, that we have just mentioned, are divided into three main areas: Financial, Logistics and Human Resources.

All applications are based on the SAP NetWeaver platform, which integrates them and supports the evolution towards a service-based architecture.

This platform supports Java 2 Enterprise Edition and ABAP (the SAP programming language). ABAP is a language governed by events, what means that there are events that determine the sequence of program execution. ABAP owns SAP, and it is not a language in which, as in others (Visual Basic, C, etc.), we can make an executable to run on any computer. The programs are executable within the SAP environment.
