What Is SAP ERP?

SAP is a German multinational software company known for making enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. ERP software allows organizations to manage business operations, and usually refers to suite of modular applications that collect and integrate data from different aspects of the business. While it is the sole focus of this article, SAP is just one provider of ERP software. Others include: Oracle, Microsoft, Infor Orbis, and Epicor.

Below is a general overview of SAP's modules for enterprise management, implementation methods, and where it stands amongst its competitors.

History of SAP

The product of five ex-IBM employees, SAP started in 1972 as a small software company in Germany with just one customer. The company's name stands for Systems, Applications & Products. Its founders had a vision of producing software that could process data when a user wanted it, rather than in overnight batches as earlier software did. Their first product was a modification of IBM's punch-card data storage, which stored data mechanically and required overnight processing. For their client, the German branch of Imperial Chemical Industries, SAP developed a real-time payroll and punch-card system in 1972.

SAP's ERP started as R/2, named for its real-time architecture and two servers. In later years it was called R/3, for three servers: the application server, production server, and database server. In 2006, SAP released the latest version, ECC 6.0, and in 2013 an Enhancement Package (EHP7) was released.

SAP's Enterprise Resource Planning Modules

SAP is a leader when it comes to neatly integrated ERP software; its various departmental applications work symphonically. Beyond its basic models, SAP provides industry-specific add-on solutions. The SAP ERP suite contains an enormous number of modules, and the main categories are:

Accounting:

  • Finance (FI)
  • Investment Management (IM)

  • Sales and Distribution (SD)
  • Logistics Execution (LO)
  • Warehouse Management (WM)
  • Plant Maintenance (PM)
  • Customer Service (CS)
  • Fleet Management (FM)
  • Quality Management (QM)
  • Production planning (PP)
  • Environment, Health, and Safety (EH&S)

Human Resources:

Technology:

  • Cross-Application (CA), includes classification systems and workflow

  • Programming (ABAP)
  • Security and Authorizations

Other Modules (requiring separate installation):

  • Business Warehouse (BW)
  • Business Intelligence (BI)
  • Knowledge Warehouse (KW)
  • International Demonstration and Education System (IDES)
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
  • Master Data Management (MDM)

  • Business Planning and Consolidation (BPC)
  • Corporate Finance Management (CFM)

Some of these modules, particularly those in Finance and Investment Management, can be broken down into sub-categories of modules, such as Accounts Payable or Receivable, Investment Orders, or Investment Support. Specific business operations and industry requirements will determine which modules are needed.

Finance, Controlling, Sales and Distribution, Material Management, and Human Resources are some of the most important sub-modules in SAP. Depending upon the organization needs, a client can buy whatever modules needed. For example, a client can buy FI, SD and MM modules only without buying CO and HR modules.

SAP Modules

As I mentioned earlier, SAP is an ERP system that handles almost all department of an organizations. SAP handles an organizations's Finance , Controlling, Human Resource, Sales, Distribution, Material management, Warehouse, Production, Security, Research and many other departments. Not just that but SAP has a special industry specific solutions for almost all industries such as manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals, Insurance, Security, Finance, Treasury etc.

SAP FICO, SD and HR are most important modules. FI and CO modules controls finance and controlling respectively. SD controls sales and HR controls Human Resource departments. FICO is a base module which gets highly connected to SD, MM, HR and PS modules.

Let's just talk about some basic SAP modules those are useful for all domains.

Finance (FI), Controlling (CO), Sales & Distribution (SD), Material Management (MM) and Human resources (HR) are some of the most important sub modules in SAP. Depending upon the organization needs, a client can buy whatever modules needed. For example, a client can buy FI, SD and MM modules only without buying CO and HR modules.

SAP Implementation

What Is ASAP Methodology?

ASAP Methodology is a standardized road map forefficiently and completely implementing an SAP system. Generally, it consists of the following phases:

  1. Project Preparation: Initial planning, setting of goals and timelines, and identifying team members.
  2. Scope Validation: Achieve an understanding of how the organization intends to use SAP for their business goals, including the identification of business process delta requirements and how SAP can provide solutions for current processes. Consists of extensive process documentation.
  3. Realization: Once the business delta requirements have been defined, this phase moves forward with the implementation of those requirements. Also includes testing in time-boxed iterations before going live.
  4. Final Preparation: Completion of cutover activities, such as rehearsal and end-user training. Prepare to go live.
  5. Go-Live Support: SAP modules go live with sustained support.
  6. Operate: Fine tune applications and interactions with applications.

There are a few variations on the standard methodology, such as an Agile method which replaces the Scope Validation phase with a Lean Blueprint phase. The required method will depend on your organization's specific needs.

Market Share and Competition

ERP Market Share

SAP Market Share and Revenue

SAP is a leader in ERP industry. As recently as 2013, SAP controlled the largest single share of the worldwide ERP software market at 24 percent. Its closest rival was Oracle, with its 12 percent market share. The company's full-year revenue for 2014 was €17.56 billion, up 4% from 2013. According to Forbes, the growth could be attributed to a surge in cloud subscriptions as the company shifts its focus to cloud-based software.

Although Oracle is a leader in data storage, SAP is the best in integration among modules. Moreover, SAP's HANA product poses a strong challenge to Oracle's dominance in data storage. SAP ERP is most adaptable to different business models and needs. SAP is a reliable ERP system for both large multinational companies and small organisations.

      It all depends what's your interests are. If you are interested/experienced in accounting, then go for FICO if not and still have business process interest then choose SD/MM/PP/WM modules. If you are interested in technical reporting and coding then choose ABAP.

      Please let me know your experience and education so I can better help.

      Hello Siri,

      SAP HR is a hot module and I am sure you can excel with your MBA in SAP.

      Earlier, companies were not keen to install SAP HR module but nowadays they want to implement it to be in sync with other departments. You can get better success in SAP HR than as an IT recruiter.

      Hello Smruti, It really depends what's your interest. If you have some understanding in Finance /Accounting than SAP FICO, otherwise SAP SD, SAP MM are nice modules. But if you are more technical, go for SAP HANA. It will be a hotcake in future.

      SAP is very powerful and robust ERP system. As I mentioned in the hub, it contains many different modules and industry specific solutions. Technical knowledge is not mandatory to learn SAP, rather you need to have good business sense and ability to learn new things. You can learn this software from SAP itself and from SAP authorized partners. SAP certification is not necessary but it can be useful for beginners to get job.Once you get a project, it all depends how you can learn from there. There are many materials available on net and I will try to provide some more materials via my hubs and blog. Hope you all succeed in what you do.
