SAP Disciplines

SAP is developing new products all the time and it would be unrealistic to list all of them on this site. Here are just some of the most commonly searched SAP terms corresponding to the candidates and clients in our existing SAP Jobs Database and SAP Consultant Database. This should hopefully form a useful glossary for SAP professionals who can bookmark it for an easy one page “crib-sheet”. We have listed the SAP modules or technologies which we have then further divided into broad categories and listed alphabetically for ease of reference.

If your SAP skill is not listed here, please inform us and we will include it!
