5 new SAP buzzwordsEvery industry comes with its own set of jargon, and the technology industry is no exception. In fact, the SAP industry may have one of the most complicated terminologies of all!

Adopting new technologies isn’t precisely the same thing as being literate in them. We may know these technologies exist and throw their names around, but we don’t always understand the technicalities. As an SAP professional, it’s your job to stay on top of the latest SAP skill trends to be successful in your position. It can feel like an uphill battle trying to learn SAP buzzwords and the many complex solutions it has to offer. 

At Michael Management, we offer the SAP training you need to master all things SAP ERP (enterprise Resource Planning) and take your career to new levels of success with the right SAP certification. But first, let’s jump into the top five SAP buzzwords you need to know right now. 


  1. Digital Transformation

    Perhaps the biggest buzzword of the last several years, SAP defines digital transformation as “a fundamental rethinking of customer experience, business models, and operations.” The digital economy is disrupting traditional business models, and businesses are forced to adapt or be left behind. According to an SAP Center for Business Insight & Oxford Economics Digital Transformation Executive Study, only three percent of companies have completed true digital transformation projects. 


  2. Big Data

    This is a term that gets thrown around a lot, but what does it really mean? Big Data refers to enormous data sets that can be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions. As an SAP professional, your job could be to help organizations find the right Big Data tools to gain valuable insights that were previously unimaginable and can transform the way they operate. Some of these technologies include in-memory data management, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning.


  3. Artificial Intelligence (AI)

    This is one that most people have heard of before, but don’t understand the full capabilities of. AI is the capability of machines to perform tasks that would typically require human intelligence. That means AI enables devices like computers to mimic human behavior and decision-making processes.

    Ever wonder how Netflix’s personalized recommendations are always spot on? As cool as it would be, you don’t have your own personal Netflix employee picking what show you’re going to binge next—that would be AI!

  4. Machine Learning 

    Think of machine learning as the ultimate professor of computers. Machine learning technology teaches computers how to perform tasks by learning from data instead of requiring a user to program them. Businesses gain a wealth of benefits when implementing machine learning into their organization, including faster decisions, adaptability, algorithmic business, deeper insights, efficiency, and better outcomes.

  5. Blockchain

    Some SAP professionals might wonder how blockchain could still be considered a buzzword in 2020, and it probably has something to do with its potential to disrupt every industry majorly. Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology (DLT) that allows data to be stored globally on thousands of servers.

    What makes it so unique is that it is distributed, which means that everyone who has access to it (anyone in the network) also has an identical copy of that data in near real-time. The benefits of using blockchain technology in an organization include having a ‘single source of truth,’ increased security, and unmodifiable data.
