SAP creates a common centralized database for all the applications running in an organization.
Oracle: It is the platform application to develop the cloud application [ 12C web design]SQL: 1. It created by Microsoft 2. Relational Database Server3. Its primary function is to store the data & retrieve data as requested by other software application.Operating system : IBM – AIX 5.2 & AIX 5.3 ( 64 bits ) HP - HP-UX 11.11 & HP-UX 11.23 ( 64 bits ) Microsoft – Windows 2000 professional ( 32 bits ) windows XP professional (32 bits ) windows server 2003 ( 32 & 64 bits )
R/3 system : Real Time Data Processing in 3-tier server applicationDatabase Application: The database server is a set of executable that accept database requests from the application server. These requests are passed on to the RDBMS (Relation Database Management System). The RDBMS sends the data back to the database server, which then passes the information back to the application server. The application server in turn passes that information to your ABAP/4 program and then you will get the required output on your presentation server. 2. Presentation Servers - The Presentation server is actually a SAPGUI ( SAP Graphical User Interface ). The interface accepts input from the user in the form of keystrokes, mouse clicks and function keys, sends these requests to the application server to be processed. The application server sends the results back to the SAPGUI which then formats the output display to the user. 3. Application Server – The application server is a set of executable that collectively interpret the ABAP/4 programs and manage the input and output for them. When an application server is started, these executable all start at the same time. When an application server is stopped, they all shut down together.
Analysis of Overall Market ShareJust like previous years, Tier I and Tier II vendors still dominate the market share of ERP implementation. The merge of Tier I and Tier II make up 64% of the implementations while Tier III and others only have 36% of the market. The market share of Tier I implementation remains the highest with 53% in total. However, all the vendors showed a drop in market share compared with 2010 Vendor Analysis report. The share of SAP decreases from 31% to 24%. Oracle is at 18% whereas it was 25% in 2010 report and Microsoft Dynamics decreases from 15% to 11%. It means the implementation of either Tier II or Tier III and Others increased around 18%.
The report focuses on data collected on ERP implementations of Tier I, Tier II and Tier III solutions, as you can see in the above table :
