Modern database applications no longer consider the stand-alone database system. Rather, generic application systems are employed in which the database system is one integrated component. The SAP R/3 product is a comprehensive software system which integrates modules for finance, material management, sales and distribution among others. From an architectural point of view, SAP R/3 is a client/server application system with a relational database system as back-end. SAP supports a choice between a variety of commercial relational database products.
