All You Need To Know About!

SAP ECC is an abbreviation for SAP ERP Central Component, popularly known as SAP ERP. It's one of the SAP legacy apps initially intended to run on a third-party database like Oracle or IBM DB2. It's a system that most businesses have and are acquainted with since it covers critical business components like financials, human resources, warehousing, and logistics. It is the preceding generation of SAP ERP (enterprise resource planning) software which has now been succeeded by SAP S/4HANA, SAP's in-memory database. For manufacturers, SAP ECC includes modules such as Production Planning, Materials Management, and Plant Maintenance.

Findings from Research and Markets show that the digital transformation market will grow at a CAGR of 23% from 2019 to $3.3 trillion by 2025. This indicates that businesses are widely acknowledging the benefit of transformational solutions to augment business function.

SAP ECC is the highlight of SAP Business Suite and should not be confused with SAP Business Suite. SAP Business Suite extends beyond the core modules to enable specialized or complicated operations such as supply chain management and customer relationship management.

What exactly is SAP HANA?

SAP S/4HANA is the fourth edition of SAP Business Suite after R/3, and a 2010 in-memory columnar database to speed SAP programs and business processes. SAP HANA is currently the platform on which SAP Business Suite products are built. It's a column-oriented, in-memory database intended to increase efficiency and streamline the data structure to maximize user productivity, give real-time visibility and use analytics. It was established to respond to real-time data rather than static quarterly reports.

SAP redesigned SAP ECC from the ground up in 2015 to develop SAP S/4HANA, leveraging SAP HANA's performance and data analytics capabilities. That is both a gain and a disadvantage. SAP S/4HANA can only run-on SAP HANA, but SAP ECC can operate on a third-party database. S/4HANA is intended to handle more complicated issues and manage more data than ECC and R/3. It improves the user experience with SAP Fiori and moves away from transactional systems that record data and toward real-time data from internal and external sources. However, some companies will have to restructure their current business operations entirely.

Who Makes Use of SAP Solutions?

A company's bottom line determines the success of SAP systems, and that bottom line is the consequence of increased efficiency, better business decisions, and more efficient operations. SAP suite works on enhancing the outcome of businesses of all shapes and sizes. In more than 150 countries, about 200,000 enterprises employ some or all SAP modules. While it is commonly assumed that only major firms utilize SAP software, over 80% of small-to-medium-sized businesses are also on board.
