A product is a unit that is delivered and visible to the customer, it is installable and renewable. In an SAP environment, a product corresponds to an SAP technical component. A product can have several versions. Each product consists of software components and/or versions.

General Rules

  • Product refers to the business application (i.e SAP ECC, SAPAPO, SalesForce etc. ) not the technical environment.
