The Business Processing segment consist of four primary verticals: Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), and Batch. ERP includes enterprise wide line-of-business (LOB) applications, other business commerce applications that facilitate business transactions or other task automation over networks, and departmental transactional applications that run on servers but do not tie directly to other applications. CRM automates the customer-facing business processes within an organization: sales, marketing, and customer service. OLTP uses a database and is not ERP. Batch involves traditional legacy mainframe-type processes that execute business process transitions in a batch process. (IDC2014).

All performance measurements are accurate as of December 15 2017.

The Sales and Distribution (SD) Benchmark covers a sell-from-stock scenario, which includes the creation of a customer order with five line items and the corresponding delivery with subsequent goods movement and invoicing. The results reported measure the completion of one SAP Application Performance Standard (SAPS) unit of measurement, which is 20 fully business processed order line items per hour and reported as a given number of benchmark users supported.

The TPC Benchmark* E (TPC-E) benchmark uses a database to model a brokerage firm with customers who generate transactions related to trades, account inquiries, and market research. The brokerage firm in turn interacts with financial markets to execute orders on behalf of the customers and updates relevant account information. The benchmark is “scalable”, meaning that the number of customers defined for the brokerage firm can be varied to represent the workloads of different-size businesses.
