SAP Business Technology Platform


What is the SAP Business Technology Platform?

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) is SAP’s portfolio of cloud services. It brings together multiple SAP applications and solutions into a single platform that can run in any cloud or hybrid environment. SAP BTP also consists of hundreds of services — from API Management to Robotic Process Automation to Process Excellence — and significant pre-built content.

Starting with the SAP Cloud Platform, SAP BTP combines technologies to create a more comprehensive solution. This combination of technologies deliver pre-built integration and are key to the value that SAP BTP offers.

Key capabilities include:

  • Database and data management
  • Analytics
  • Application development and integration
  • Intelligent technologies

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders

  • An overview of the SAP Business Technology Platform. Dave Maloney, SAP’s North American VP for the Business Technology Platform, outlines the solution and why it is important. More than just a wrapper around a list of different technologies, Maloney says the SAP BTP offers content, consistency, and continuity. It also makes the move to the cloud far less risky, Maloney explains, and improves total cost of ownership. Watch the short video and learn more about SAP BTP.
  • Business centricity, completeness, and openness are what makes SAP BTP unique. Dan Kearnan, SAP’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, explains that the SAP Business Technology Platform helps address customer challenges by being an integrated portfolio of technologies. But what makes it unique is the business centricity of the offering, the completeness of the portfolio, and the open architecture that exists. Kearnan’s complete interview covers current technology shifts, current challenges, solutions included, and these unique differentiators of SAP BTP.
  • Explore how SAP BTP supports a multi-cloud strategy. One of SAP’s key statements about the SAP Business Technology Platform is that it can run in any cloud or hybrid environment. Turning that marketing message into reality can be accomplished though, as James Wood, Principal Consulting of Bowdark Consulting, points out. And it’s done using the openness that Kearnan listed as one of the things that makes SAP BTP unique. In his article on embracing a multi-cloud strategy with SAP BTP, Wood explores the solution, running it on hyperscalers, and using Cloud Foundry and Kyma. He believes that we are now “able to witness the culmination of a multi-year journey towards openness.” This is worth exploring for your own cloud strategy.
