    Dear

    CONFIGURATION: we will configure the system to meet the needs of your business by using the existing data.

    Whereas

    CUSTOMIZING: we will customise or adapt the system to your business requirements, which is the process of mapping SAP to your business process.

    Hi,

    As per my knowledge, customization means modifying the system as per client's requirements. SAP provides standard applications. Sometimes the Client may need somethings extra or less. Making the applications behave as per client's requirement, could be termed as customization. The process of making customization is Configuration if done without using ABAP code. This includes modifying tables and writing rules, schemas etc.

    Thanks,
