Definitions: ECC vs ERP

Hi

 

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.

 

Chris

    Dear Christopher,

     

    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.

     

    Regards

    Hi Christ,

     

    ERP is the product type stands for Enterprise Resource Planning.

    This is not a original naming convention of SAP, So many ERPs available in now a days.

     

    ECC is the version name of SAP, stands for Enterprise Central Component. This is the original version naming convension of SAP.

    Hi

    ERP application is an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software manufactured by SAP AG that targets business software requirements of midsize and large organizations in all industries and sectors. the company that provides the enterprise resource planning solution has upgraded the package and lauched it as SAP ECC 6.0 in 2005. ECC stands for Enterprise Central Component. The purpose of positioning it as ECC is to enable SAP to build and develop an environment of other products that can function upon the foundation of the central component

    R/3 Enterprise was replaced with the introduction of ERP Central Component

     

     

    We can define as ERP as a whole sum pacakage and ECC as its main component

     

     

     

    Thx

    Shilpa
