ABAP/4

ABAP stands for Advanced Business Application Programming and /4 represents it's a 4th generation language.

ABAP is the programming language used to develop applications in SAP. It is a programming language developed by SAP which is a German company that develops ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems.  These systems are used by companies to track all information related to the business integrating finance, sales, materials data etc.  ABAP/4 is the programming language used for the development of thousands of tiny embedded programs called transactions that make up the application.

SAP is very flexible, it can be used for specific business functions rather than the whole enterprise and can be modified for the company's specific needs.  Every SAP installation has its own specific configuration and set of functions. SAP is an industry specific software and comes with a lot of predefined applications and configurations. SAP also provides lots of customizing options, if any of the applications provided by SAP does not meet your company specific requirements. Different customizing options include -

Modifications - Where the standard SAP code can be modified as per your business requirements.

Enhancements - The standard SAP applications can be enhanced without actually changing the source code of the main program using the enhancement techniques viz., User exits/Customer exits/Badis/Enhancement Points.

Customer Developments - Where you can develop your own applications in the SAP system.

Even though customization is not absolutely necessary to use an SAP system, however,  since every company has their own company specific business requirements, every company does customize standard SAP software to meet their company specific requirements. Few companies may have 30% customization and few may have up to 70% customization. Since all the applications are developed using ABAP programming language, every company needs ABAP consultants who can customize the software either through modifications, enhancements or custom developments.
