Unlike other ERPs SAP is tightly integrated across different modules ie FI/CO/HR/MM/SD etc..

Hi,

There are number of technical reasons numbers of companies are planning to implement SAP. It’s highly configurable, highly secure data handling, min data redundancy, max data consistency, you can capitalize on economics of sales like purchasing, tight integration-cross function.

Hi

Here is the difference

SAP (Product)=>

Enterprise resource planning software built around the company's R/3 system that provides the capability to manage financial, asset, and cost accounting, production operations and materials, personnel, plants, and archived documents.

ERP =>

Short for enterprise resource planning, a business management system that integrates all facets of the business, including planning, manufacturing, sales, and marketing. As the ERP methodology has become more popular, software applications have emerged to help business managers implement ERP in business activities such as inventory control, order tracking, customer service, finance and human resources

you go through these links for better idea about advantages and disadvantages of ERP and SAP
