I have a question about the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, SAP (which as I understand, was developed...
by a German based company). What does "SAP" stand for? Thanks for your help. This will answer an extra credit question in my MIS class.
"SAP" stand for System Application Program.
SAP R/3 is an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system which integrates most business applications (Sales/Distribution, Material Management, Production Planning, Controlling, Financial Management, etc.) in one product. SAP R/3 consists of a presentation server on the client side, the middle tier Application server and its own repository which consists of the data model (DDIC) and programs written in a proprietary language called ABAP/4, and the Database server which runs on various platforms and databases.
