      After reading many articles I am still not clear about SAP and ERP. I would be glad, if any one can help me explain the concept of SAP and ERP separately. Are they both interrelated

      Hi,

      First of all, I wanna start with abbreviation " SAP --> System Applications and Products in Data Processing.

      ERP --> Enterprise Resource Planning  like  Software product for eg: SAP, Microsoft,oracle,peoplesoft..

      One more important term " ECC --> Enterprise Central Component "  . ERP was later called as ECC.

      ECC has been divided ino the below types:

      1)SAP R/3  Enterprise ( 4.7 x ) - Very older version, SAP planning to stop giving support.

      SAP BASIS 6.20

      2)SAP ERP 2004

      SAP netweaver 2004

      BASIS 6.40, ECC 5.0

      3) SAP ERP 2005

      SAP netweaver 2004s

      BASIS 7.00, ECC 6.0

      I hope this ll be solved ur doubts. If We are new to SAP, first few days We stuck with terms and products. After starting to work with environment, We can familiar with SAP

      Hi Ranendra,

      Good question, I like it. Without foundation how building can be construct.

      Let me explain your queries- ERP-It's abbreviated for Enterprise Resource Planning. 

      It means resources: MAN, MACHINE, MATERIAL, MONEY & METHOD. How to use these resources in an effective way so that one organization can achieve its business goal as well as smooth day to day  business process & employee satisfaction by using these 5M’s.

      SAP is an ERP package which is tightly integrated with all functional modules such as SD (Sales & Distribution), FI/CO (Finance/Control), MM (Material Management), HR (Human Resource), PP (Production Planning) and many more modules. All these modules are implemented in a manufacturing company. The end user (Employee of company) works in these modules in their day to day business transaction. SAP facilitates a platform to its business partner how to use these resources in an effective and planned way.

      Other ERP packages also available in market such as people soft, oracle, Baan and Siebal, but SAP is so famous because of its tightly integrated with all functional modules and having a solution for all the functional departments in an organization. It’s is abbreviated for System Application & Product.

      I hope now you may clear your doubts between SAP and ERP. Your feedback is greatly accepted.

      Thanks,

      Regards

      Soman.
