It really depends on the other packages and what you want to do with them. The strength of SAP is that it has taken the "best" business practice ( that covers most of what you want to do) and made them into SAP processes.

it has a large userbase, resources are easily available.
Supports almost all platforms.
Good and timly support is available from SAP.
Versions are avialbale for different industries from private sector to government sectors.
Ready to run packages are available (customized on best practices of different industries).
It supports small to large scale organizations.
Very strong process for idustrial organizations.
1. Systems, Application and Products in Data Processing (SAP) consists of highly integrated software modules that perform common business functions based on multinational leading practices.  SAP is the third generation of SAP software.
2. SAP is based on a client/server architecture and uses a relational database to track all information related to a corporation.
3. SAP runs on several operating systems, including UNIX, Windows NT, and AS/400, and
can use different database management systems, including Oracle, DB2, Informix, and Microsoft SQL Server.
4. The SAP client/server system architecture is built around several modules or applications.

One of the reasons for the success of SAP is the tight integration of the business applications.
One event in one module, such as materials, automatically triggers response in the others, such as sales, finance, and plant maintenance. For instance, when a customer places an order, a purchase order is created, an inventory is created, appropriate documents are created, and so on. This functionality is a major advantage compared to that offered by other vendors who simply package the business functionality in one box with limited integration.
