When SAP was founded a good 50 years ago, the company was dealing with business application software and was best known for its ERP systems. In addition, however, a whole range of other solutions, services and technologies are offered, which are now combined under the umbrella of the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) .

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP ) is a comprehensive, integrated suite of cloud services and tools developed by SAP as a Platform as a Service (PaaS). It consists of four pillars: database management, analysis tools, integration and software development as well as modern technologies such as Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (IRPA), artificial intelligence and machine learning. It is a unified and open data and development platform for the entire SAP ecosystem in the cloud. With the BTP , SAP improves data exchange between systems and ensures that developments take place outside of the ERP core and can be easily integrated.

What is special about the SAP Business Technology Platform?

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) offers a multitude of advantages for companies. Here are some of the most important:

application integration

The BTP enables the seamless integration of applications, both within the company and with external partners and platforms. Businesses can connect disparate systems and ensure a unified flow of data, resulting in improved collaboration and efficiency.

Application Development and Extension

SAP BTP offers tools and services for the development and expansion of applications. Organizations can create custom applications to meet specific business needs and extend their existing SAP systems to add new functionality and integrations.

Scalability and flexibility

The BTP enables companies to operate their applications and systems in the cloud. This gives them the flexibility to respond to changing needs and scale their resources to accommodate growth.

future security

The SAP BTP is a future-oriented platform that is continuously being further developed. Businesses can access innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to explore new opportunities and increase their competitiveness.

These advantages make the SAP BTP a powerful platform for companies to drive their digital transformation, create more efficient processes and develop innovative solutions.
