For SAP R/3, SAP stands for System Application and Product for data processing. In German language it stands for "Systeme, Anwendungen und Produkte in der Datenverarbeitung".

R/3 doesnt mean Release 3, but represents 3-tier. R/2 means 2-tiers. Three-tier means system capability to build all three SAP component into different host of servers, the components are database server (any database DB2, Oracle, MSSQL, MaxDB etc), application server (SAP engine), and presentation server (GUI, Frontend, SAP browser).

There are also a lot of informal abbreviation for SAP, mostly they are like negative campaign. However SAP is great product, a gold-brand for mature company, larger in ERP market world than the mighty Oracle has.
