What is Client in SAP ?

 In SAP Clients means Customer, 
e.g let say if One Big Business Group having number of Companies (companies have no. of subsidiary)  & and all companies work independently,  
 If Group want to purchase Business software then to maintain individuality of each company they have to purchase Separates ERP system of each company which heavy investment & costly.
         In SAP systems , You can use one system for number of Companies which operate independently without interfering in each other. No need to install separate software's for each and every company. Hence Costs are not only saved by sharing hardware and software but multiple companies also use the same application solution, including administration and support.

So " We can define a Client as an organisational & legal entity in SAP"
The master data in a client is only visible within that client & can not be displayed nor change form another clients
