A New Wave of Information Technology
 Audio Transcript  As technology grows and changes, software has to upgrade accordingly. However, SAP believes in an environment where you do not have to scrap your existing software setup. Instead, it would provide upgrades and extend the functionality of the existing software, therebyreducing costs. In this image, you can see that to begin with SAP’s technology was based on Mainframe architecture – based on ABAP and R2. Keeping pace with business requirements and integrated business processes,technology changes were made from R2 to three tier R/3 and moved from Mainframes to Client-Server  Architecture. SAP R/3 has always been an “integrated” system where business processes wereintegrated within an enterprise’s operations. Capable of e-commerce since 1996, SAP productsincorporated business technology for the future, thus paving the way for incorporating futuredevelopments. This eliminated the need for customers to change existing systems and allowed for “integration” of business processes “between” enterprises. Finally, with Technology advances and the internet revolution, you now have services catering toadaptive businesses like Web services. SAP’s Enterprise service architecture platform features Netweaver, business suites and xApps offerings, keeping pace with the business requirements of todayand the future.

 Audio Transcript  After the SAP R/1 and SAP R/2 products, SAP introduced SAP R/3. Later, in March of 2003, SAP released SAP ERP, where many other SAP components were included along with SAP R/3. Inside SAP  ERP, SAP R/3 enterprise was just a component. As you can see here, from this point on SAP ERP was more than just SAP R/3 Enterprise with SAP  NetWeaver, since it offers many functional enhancements like Self Services, self service procurement,internet sales, and SAP SEM. SAP Net Weaver also contains the SAP Web Application Server. With SAP  ERP, a new SAP solution was born.The SAP ERP Central Component or SAP ECC, is the evolutionary successor of the previously offered SAP R/3 Enterprise, and is the central core of SAP ERP.Compared to the SAP R/3 Enterprise, in SAP ECC there are architectural changes with respect to Enterprise Services Architecture, enhanced usability and new developed functionality, like the new general ledger.SAP Business Warehouse, SAP Strategic Enterprise Management, and Internet Transaction Server integrated into SAP ECC. Customers now have the option to run these components on the sameinstance that runs SAP ECC to reduce the system landscape and save costs. Running the componentson separate instances is also possible. SAP Web Application Server contains all capabilities of SAP basis as well as additional web capabilities.
