SAP is the most successful product for enterprise resource planning (ERP), touching nearly every facet of business like accounting, logistics, CRM, HR, data warehouse, etc. In many companies, transactions of thousands of users must be processed concurrently by SAP and the underlying database system. Hence, it is truly a mission-critical technology that requires solid performance and high availability to deliver the level of service the business requires. Failure of this critical system introduces tremendous business risk, both to the successful execution of internal processes and to the service level agreements as established.
