Hi Sree,

SAP (Systems Application and Products for Data Processing), as the name implies is used for the dataprocessing needs in, preferably, large organizations.

Yes, it can be said as business related.

It covers nearly all the modules required for business processes.

Beauty in it lies in the communication link among different modules without any manual intervention.

Opportunities, right now, appears good.

You can browse through net for further information about SAP.

In my view, the best book to start with is ABAP in 21 days.
