No. of terms: above 6000 (I stopped counting)
Description: One of the most comprehensive computer dictionaries that you will able to find on the Internet. Comparable to IBMs Dictionary also with SAP dictionary you can be sure to get informed and qualified definitions. Despite the description by SAP as “A list of terms commonly used in the SAP ecosystem”, this glossary (what a decent word) will give you answers to almost any IT, Computer and Telecommunication related question. Even Business terms are part of this outstanding reference work.
Example term: reference object (PM)
A technical object, for example, equipment, functional location, assembly or combination of material and serial numbers, that is referred to by a service or maintenance notification, or a service or maintenance order.
The entry of a reference object simplifies the order account assignment because the data entered in the object master record is proposed as a default. In addition, the entry of a reference object determines which components and task lists are proposed when an order is planned.

No. of terms: several thousands!
This IBM resource, or should we say computer dictionary, consolidates the terminology from many IBM products, but at its core it holds endless entries of base computer terminology, terms and definitions. It is to my best knowledge one of the most comprehensive and best maintain reference source for everything computer on the Web.
Example term: build
- (1) The process during which a build program (clearmake, clearaudit, or omake) produces one or more derived objects. This may involve actual translation of source files and construction of binary files by compilers, linkers, text formatters, and so on.
- (2) An operational version of a system or part of a system that demonstrates a subset of the capabilities to be provided in the final product.
- (3) To create or modify resources, usually based on the state of other resources. A Java builder converts Java source files into executable class files, for example, and a Web link builder updates links to files whose name or location has changed.
- (4) To convert a product from source code to a binary or executable software product.
