Integrated across all landscapes

SAP’s integration approach goes far beyond technical integration of applications: holistic integration of data, technology, and business processes delivers significant value to your business. It accelerates the speed of innovation, lowers the efforts for integration, shortens time to value, reduces the complexity of operations, and allows for real-time insight. Our integrated intelligent suite connects your supply and demand chain to deliver an integrated, intelligent process experience.

Suite qualities

Intelligent, integrated enterprises offer a consistent experience along end-to-end key processes. In 2020, SAP introduced distinct suite qualities that characterize our intelligent suite of seamlessly integrated applications.

SAP Business Technology Platform

As the underlying technology for the suite qualities, SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) integrates your processes and data, as well as SAP, partner, and third-party applications. You can build new applications or extend your SAP applications, transform your data into value, and drive desired business outcomes. SAP Integration Suite is part of SAP BTP and the technology connecting end-to-end processes for an intelligent enterprise, while enabling you to harmonise on-premise, cloud, and third-party application landscapes.

Many of the SAP BTP services that are now available with the SAP BTP free tier model allow customers to test and explore platform services for integration, extension, data, and analytics use cases, with an easy path to productive use.

Mobile experience

SAP’s new mobile experience powerfully integrates and extends user experiences and workflows. Mobile-based interactions are the single most influential factor in customer adoption and satisfaction and industry projections (25% CAGR).* This means that the amount of information available to improve processes will triple by 2025.
