SAP has been running on mainframes for many, many years -- in fact, if you Google SAP on IBM, the first web page states

Hello,

Keep in mind that "Linus" is not as old as SAP. . .

35 years ago, Unix was 5 years old and mainframes were not Unix aware. SAP has been running under z/OS and its predecessors for all 35+ years.

The shortened term is usually used with the approval of the person involved.
