SAP Cloud Platform evolves
Our cloud platform is one of the core pillars powering SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and has become a key element within our broader platform offering, rather than a stand-alone offering. Its strong integration and extension capabilities are now available as services that run on SAP BTP. These capabilities, now called SAP Integration Suite and SAP Extension Suite, were recently recognised by Gartner in its 2020 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (EiPaaS) and Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms, respectively.
Application development and integration
Application development and integration capabilities, previously available in SAP Cloud Platform, are now cloud services that run on SAP BTP – providing users with a cloud environment to develop, manage, extend, and deliver applications.
Enterprise application integration
SAP Integration Suite, an integration platform as a service (iPaaS), enables users to implement data, application, API, and process integration projects involving any combination of cloud-resident and on-premise end points.
Application development and extensions
SAP Extension Suite services can help you build and enhance your solutions, optimise your business processes, and create an engaging digital experience. With more than 80 services available, SAP can help you boost development productivity and efficiency.
Frequently asked questions
We are removing SAP Cloud Platform as a brand name. However, the technical capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform will remain as important as ever. Concretely, this means the services under the former SAP Cloud Platform brand continue to exist, just without “Cloud Platform” in the name. For example, “SAP Workflow Management” and “SAP Enterprise Messaging."
As SAP Business Technology Platform has progressed, we have found it better for our customers to align our integration and extension capabilities to one platform. Our integration and extension capabilities are key to powering SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP). These capabilities, along with database and data management, analytics, and intelligent technologies, are critically important components of our holistic platform that complement SAP and third-party applications to deliver agile and comprehensive digital transformation in the cloud.
SAP is on a journey toward a unified, open, and business-centric technology foundation for all SAP applications: SAP Business Technology Platform.
In the evolution to be the platform for all SAP applications, SAP BTP exposes SAP Cloud Platform capabilities as services next to the capabilities in SAP HANA or SAP Analytics solutions, for example.
With this evolution, and in-line with our goal to send one strong message for SAP BTP as the platform for our intelligent enterprise strategy, the decision was made that SAP Cloud Platform is no longer needed as a stand-alone brand. At the same time, its capabilities remain at the core of SAP BTP. Effective immediately, we are sunsetting SAP Cloud Platform as a product and brand name. The proven capabilities from SAP Cloud Platform, available in the renamed SAP Integration Suite and SAP Extension Suite, are as important as ever, and they continue to be available as products and services.
Of course, it is not about SAP only. We are elevating the entire ecosystem so that customers will have an unprecedented choice of end-to-end solutions. The platform will fundamentally change how we work together, thanks to faster innovation, faster adoption, and faster implementation of new business models. Now, our partners are engaged in the entire customer lifecycle, from development, to deployment, to continuous innovation. We are lucky to have such a vibrant ecosystem that we rely on.
We are sunsetting SAP Cloud Platform as a brand name; however, the integration and extension capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform will continue to be available as products and services under SAP Integration Suite and SAP Extension Suite. The functionality for our customers will remain unchanged.
What customers will notice will be the changes in the service wherever the brand name “SAP Cloud Platform” is currently being referred to.
Going forward, the trial will be renamed SAP BTP trial and the cockpit will be renamed SAP BTP cockpit. There is no change in capabilities or user experience in the trial and the cockpit.
There are no changes in agreements or pricing related to the brand name change.
