SAP is well known in manufacturing and other circles for its financial software, enterprise resource planning, and business intelligence tools. The company's products are also often favored by healthcare organizations.

In its recent report about BI tools in healthcare, research firm KLAS said SAP is most often considered by providers that use Epic clinical information systems, such as e-health records. In healthcare settings, KLAS said SAP is often "seen as a tool set instead of a solution; typically considered by larger organizations with sophisticated IT staffs." It's worth noting that BI software from Epic, Cerner, and Siemens all partially use software from SAP, said KLAS.
