The application platform for the SAP Business Suite of applications. Superseding SAP's earlier BASIS platform and launched with mySAP ERP 2005, this comprehensive set of software components, which is the technology foundation of SAP's flagship software, was re-engineered into a service-oriented architecture (SOA). In order to help developers understand the many component interrelationships, SAP redefined NetWeaver as a set of IT Practices, including "User Productivity Enablement" and "Data Unification." The Practices contain IT Scenarios, each of which contains the IT processes necessary to perform the operation. See SAP Business Suite.

SAP Business Suite

A family of enterprise applications from SAP that form the core business offerings of the company. Formerly known as the mySAP Business Suite, the primary applications cover enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), product life cycle management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM) and supplier relationship management (SRM).

Services Oriented
The SAP Business Suite roadmap is services oriented, and the Suite's underlying NetWeaver platform is geared to an enterprise service-oriented architecture (see NetWeaver). See R/3 and SAP.
