SAP

SAP is a producer of software for the management of business processes, developing solutions that facilitate effective data processing and information flow across organizations. SAP environments are critical to many types of enterprise workloads. 

When your environment is ingesting SAP data, you can use it to pinpoint where problems like slowdowns or outages are stemming from, which systems were impacted and who was affected.
