Can someone explain to me the difference between "ECC" and "ERP"? There seems to be some confusion/overlap here. Is "ECC" now officially retired by SAP? Or is it a subset of the ERP solution?
In fact, I've also heard the terms "ERP Core" and "ERP central" - are those something different?
Would welcome a good link.
ECC stands for Enterprise Central Component.
ERP Stands for Enterprise Resource planning.
The below content is taken from wikipedia,
SAP R/3 is the former name of the main enterprise resource planning software produced by SAP AG. It
was renamed SAP ERP. It was later renamed Enterprise Central Component or ECC.
SAP is an Enterprise Resource Planning software.SAP ECC 5.0 ERP is the successor of SAP R/3
4.70. The newest version of the suite is MySAP 2005 or SAP ECC 6.0.
Thanks for the responses.
Actually, I am certain I read that the term "mySAP" has been retired. And I don't trust wikipedia when it says that ECC is the new name for ERP, because I read ERP everywhere.
I know it sounds silly, but this kind of thing is really important for some documents I am writing.
Ideally I would like to see some kind of diagram that shows the scope of what is meant by ECC/ERP/Business Suite etc.
And I don't trust wikipedia when it says that ECC is the new name for ERP, because I read ERP everywhere.
I don't think wikipedia says so. I didn't read all of it though.
