What is SAP Business Technology Platform?
Accelerate cross-functional innovation to unlock business potential
Accelerating digital innovation across business functions requires foresight and agility to navigate dynamic market conditions. Enterprises must unlock processes and data in their applications and enable users to personalise their work in context. In addition, having the right content available to customise cloud applications is a must. These elements are critical to evolve operating models.
SAP Business Technology Platform is an innovation platform optimised for SAP applications in the cloud.
SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) brings together application development, data and analytics, integration, automation, and AI capabilities in one unified environment. Create personalised experiences across business processes, build applications, analytics, and integrations faster, and run mission-critical innovation confidently on major cloud providers' infrastructure fully managed by SAP.
Developers have what they need to connect, extend, and enrich mission-critical business processes quickly. Business users can automate tasks, create fast, flexible workflows, or personalise interfaces without coding. Collaborating on planning and sharing insights across the business becomes easier with instant access to business-context-rich information from your SAP and third-party systems.
Create personalised experiences that work with SAP Applications
digitalisation must support the unique ways in which your company operates while growing efficiency and productivity across business processes. New innovations must extend and enrich your existing applications to smoothly deliver end-to-end intelligent processes tailored to the specific needs of your business and users.
SAP BTP comes with comprehensive capabilities for application development, AI, integration, and data and analytics with native integration to SAP applications and connectivity to other apps and data sources. With SAP BTP, your innovations can deliver consistent, connected experiences along business processes and real-time, complete views of data no matter where it resides. Plus, you can enrich user interactions with embedded artificial intelligence and automation that help your users become more engaged and productive.
Build faster with business context to meet change with agility
With companies accelerating their digitalisation efforts, the speed of innovation directly impacts business performance. Innovation can no longer be the domain of a small number of highly trained workers due to skyrocketing demand. Additionally, software development and analytics workflows must rely on modern technology and proven best practices to deliver outcomes at the speed your business demands.
With SAP BTP, you can jump-start new projects by relying on proven best practices and gain a full understanding of SAP data semantics so that you can minimise data preparation. You can also leverage a broad set of prebuilt data models, integrations, workflows, content-rich APIs, and AI business services across many application areas, purposely designed for your line of business (LoB) and industry. These business assets are created and maintained by SAP and ecosystem partners, helping ensure that your innovations work today and with new software releases to increase your innovation agility and efficiency.
SAP BTP helps professional developers and LoB technologists alike innovate faster with the right combination of traditional tools, no-code/low code solutions, and self-service analytics. Whether you need to deliver new enterprise-ready apps, integrate processes, automate tasks, augment applications with chatbots, or get insights to inform your business data, you can achieve results faster by empowering more people to innovate within a governed environment.
Run with confidence on a trusted, enterprise-grade platform
With companies increasingly relying on cloud technology for every aspect of their business, reliability and security are essential characteristics of business-driven innovation. And while the expectation for faster results is growing, innovation agility cannot compromise or slow down ongoing business operations.
SAP BTP allows you to innovate in the cloud without interfering with your core applications, helping you standardise your SAP software landscape. You gain the right environment to move existing customisations to the cloud and develop new ones, simplifying maintenance and improving the reliability of your SAP applications.
Using SAP BTP, you can deploy your new analytics workloads, applications, and extensions in a mission-critical cloud environment managed by SAP.
