What is SAP ESR Contents?

SAP delivers the standard SAP content which is to be installed into SAP Process Orchestration (PO) Enterprise Services Repository (ESR).
These ESR contents are for different cross applications integration such as with Elster,Nfe, SAP Concur etc. which contains standard set of mappings, message types.
