SAP offers multiple Web frameworks, e.g. SAP's BSP framework alone has
315.000 hits in Google:

Quantitatively, this is not much. However, if you look at the domains that run
SAP web applications, you will learn that these web applications are run by 
the big fishes on the web. Furthermore, you can safely bet that on most 
Intranets of large organizations there are many SAP Web apps deployed.

This "WebManager-Pro CMS" in which you found the SQL-Injection has
166.000 hits in Google, most of which are dealing with security bugs:

- Interesting, yes.
- New, no.
- SAP is relevant on the web.

You have found a nice SQL-Injection that is worth an advisory. It is *not*
worth opening a new class of bugs.
