Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

SAP is a HUGE ERP (enterprise resource planning) application.

Take a business like Coca-Cola. SAP could be used for financial record keeping, Human Resources, Manufacturing, distribution, and on and on…

SAP specialists are very much in demand these days.

You can read more about SAP on their website at: <a href=”http://www.sap.com/index.epx”>SAP</a>

There are some other things that SAP can mean but, to just about any IT person, this is the most popular thing that would come to mind.

Does that answer your Question?

    SAP is the largest Business Software company in the world. Microsoft runs their business on SAP. However, 60 % of SAP's customers are small to midsize companies. SAP has several tiers of solutions depending on your company size. For startup and small companies, there is SAP Business One. For midsize and large enterprises who want SaaS, there is SAP Business By Design. And for companies like Coca-cola, (who runs SAP by the way), there is MySAP also branded as SAP All In One.
