SAP is not a database server but an ERP Software. It is enterprise resource planning software developed by the German company SAP SE. SAP ERP incorporates the key business functions of an organization. The latest version (SAP ERP 6.0) was made available in 2006. The most recent Enhancement Package (EHP8) for SAP ERP 6.0 was released in 2016.

Business Processes included in SAP ERP are Operations (Sales & Distribution, Materials Management, Production Planning, Logistics Execution, and Quality Management), Financials (Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Financial Supply Chain Management), Human Capital Management (Training, Payroll, e-Recruiting) and Corporate Services (Travel Management, Environment, Health and Safety, and Real-Estate Management).

SAP is not database. It is company which develops ERP tools for reporting.

For example each and every month all employees in any organization got salary at last date of month so this is not any human task to deposit salary one by one. It is SAP tools which calculate all parameters of employee and create reports and contact respective bank to deposit their salaries.

For database prospective, SAP introduces SAP HANA which is a database like your ORACLE, MS SQL etc but it is very enhanced product in comparison to other.

So basically SAP develop tools to create/ develop reports based on your company database and let them decide their business on basis of current reporting.

SAP company is known for EAS (Enterprise Application Software) Products like SAP R/3 , SAP-ERP (and CRM/SRM/SCM ) and now S/4HANA.

Till now, all the SAP products were installed on Database like ORACLE /MSSQL/DB2 etc.

SAP has created his own Database called as SAP-HANA which is a platform for the new generation application suite S/4HANA. with SAP HANA database SAP is not dependent on other software vendors like ORACLE/MICROSOFT/IBM.

SAP HANA is SAP’s proprietary DB which can be installed on LINUX OS(SUSE/REDHAT)
