SAP BTP: A Cloud-Driven Future
SAP continues to consistently rely on the cloud and, with the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP), offers a future-oriented cloud innovation center for creating, integrating and managing applications.
A growing number of SAP products are migrating to the cloud; both all-in-one solutions, such as S/4HANA Cloud and Analytics Cloud, and flexible tools, such as the low-code middleware Cloud Platform Integration. Other examples include the numerous SAP cloud services, such as the central cloud interface for banking institutions or AI-supported bank statement processing. It also enables existing on-premise SAP systems to be enhanced with specific smart features to bring maximum benefit to customers. In the future, therefore, most SAP customers will have at least part of their system landscape in the cloud.
SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP)
The SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) ensures that users retain visibility and control over SAP’s diverse cloud activities. It combines a technical developer and hosting platform with a marketplace for innovative SAP products and services and is considered an extension of the SAP Cloud Platform (SCP), which made the development part available until 2021.
SAP BTP integrates the following:
- SAP Cloud Products
- Database and Data Management
- Application Programming
- SAP System Integration
- Intelligent Technologies
If SAP customers want to use the modern products available only in the cloud version in these areas, SAP BTP must become an integral part of their SAP strategy. At a conceptual level, this sets the course for the digital future, as SAP BTP includes many tools for leveraging and integrating innovations.
