ERP Vendors

ERP Vendors

ERP vendors:  There are hundreds of software companies offering ERP solutions.  There are two kinds of ERP companies.  (1) ERP software developing organizing and (2) ERP implementing partners.

ERP vendor companies:  SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics (Navision), Sage ERP, DNS ERP, Telly ERP, and so on.

ERP implementer partners:  Siemens InfoTech, PwC, Infosys (recent acquisition of Axon, for instance), etc.

What is the difference between SAP and ERP?

This is wrong question.  It is like asking, “What is the difference between a car and Honda Accord?”  Honda Accord is one of the models of cars.  Car is a generic name given to vehicle.  Similarly, ERP is generic name given to enterprise management integrated software.

SAP Certification:  No doubt, SAP is considered as # 1 and learning SAP ERP will be a feather in your cap, however, (first you need the cap).  Many students are carried away by the SAP brand name without understanding that, just by sitting in the Mercedes car, you can’t learn driving.  Make sure that ERP certificate is backed by adequate practical training and at least two years of work experience.  A fresher with an SAP certificate is a sad joke!

Please note that SAP is a well-known, leading ERP company in the world.  But, SAP is not the only ERP vendor.  There are many ERP companies.  SAP is a specific name of the one of the companies, which has developed ERP software.  Therefore, it is wrong way to ask, “What is the difference between SAP and ERP?”  One may ask a question, “What is the difference between SAP and MS Dynamics?”?  That makes more sense.
