SAP Business Technology Platform

The interface for individual extensions and optimisations of business processes with SAP applications.

The SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) is a cloud platform that helps to efficiently implement innovative business processes. By using modern cloud technologies, solutions can be offered in a scalable manner and with high availability.

Companies must be able to react flexibly to changes in order to develop new business models if necessary. On the other hand, SAP ERP systems can only ensure a stable environment for business-critical business processes with a "clean core" approach.
To cover both requirements, a hybrid system landscape lends itself to implementing individual processes "side-by-side" with an innovation platform and thus not hindering updates of the ERP system. SAP BTP offers companies the possibility to integrate data with business processes and to optimise decision-making processes in companies with improved visibility. As a Platform as a Service (PaaS), the BTP provides services that can be used to implement individual requirements or offer business functions that can already be used. In addition, complete applications such as the SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud (SAP DMC) are also provided on the SAP BTP, which can use the extension and integration options of the cloud platform.


Less reports with poor data quality
Higher productivity of the development team
Less faulty business processes

Thanks to modern cloud technologies, the Business Technology Platform brings you decisive advantages in the optimisation of your business processes. We will be happy to support you with our know-how in the introduction of a scalable solution.

Introduction of the SAP Business Technology Platform with Azure AD connection

Our services

  • Advice on the implementation of the SAP Business Technology Platform
  • Best practices for structuring, architecture, security and use of cloud services
  • Discussion of use cases for cloud solutions

  • No-code/low-code process automation
  • Cloud Development on the SAP BTP

SAP Business Technology Platform functions

  • The Extension Suite offers services and runtime environments for the implementation of cloud solutions with different approaches
  • Possible approaches include Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP) or no-code/low-code applications with SAP Build
  • With the cloud services and environments, existing SAP applications can be extended side-by-side or new applications and services can be developed and deployed in the cloud
  • Customers get great flexibility in the choice of environments, programming languages and scalability of deployment
  • Deployments are supported by modern development environments in the cloud, eliminating the need for local installations
  • Cloud application deployment can be automated and automatically scaled as demand changes
  • The Integration Suite offers services that can be used with the Integration Solution Advisory Methodology (ISA-M) when implementing integrated end-to-end business processes
  • The realisation of integration scenarios between SAP systems can be accelerated through the use of templates
  • Integration templates and a common data model enable the automation of integrations between SAP systems with the Cloud Integration Automation Service (CIAS) 
  • End-to-end processes can be simplified across system boundaries and implemented with less effort
  • SAP HANA Cloud is a high-performance, scalable in-memory database service that can be used in combination with other SAP solutions such as SAP HANA Cloud Data Lake, SAP Data Intelligence, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud or SAP Analytics Cloud to build a data platform. The SAP HANA Cloud can be booked and scaled flexibly
  • SAP HANA Cloud offers a wide range of virtualisation and replication options with which data from other systems can be integrated. The SAP HANA Cloud can be flexibly booked and scaled
  • Through integration in the Cloud Application Model (CAP), applications with database connectivity can be implemented efficiently
  • Customers can use the HANA Cloud Service to store data that is not required in the SAP ERP system, for example. The cloud service is particularly suitable for users with unclear, short-term, fluctuating or temporary needs for data volume
  • The SAP Analytics Cloud, Embedded Edition Service is reduced in scope compared to the SAP Analytics Cloud and can be booked with the BTP
  • Cloud applications can thus offer evaluations on operational data
  • Users can make better decisions more quickly with this information (keywords actionable insights, data-to-value) and do not need an enterprise licence for the SAP Analytics Cloud to do so
  • BTP offers the AI Core service for training and managing Machine Learning (ML) models and pre-trained SAP AI Business Services
  • With SAP AI Core, machine learning models can be managed throughout their entire life cycle
  • AI/ML Services facilitate the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for business users
  • Business processes can be optimised and automated to reduce simple, repetitive manual tasks
  • The SAP Build service is a no-code/low-code platform that combines process automation with SAP Build Process Automation, digital workspace design with SAP Build Work Zone and app creation with the drag-and-drop SAP Build Apps tool
  • With SAP Build, customers can implement apps for automated business processes and workflows and create digital workplaces
  • Users do not need developers to implement simple apps. Functional experts can create their own apps as so-called "Citizen Developers"
  • Use of secure user administration and access control through the Cloud Identity Service with the option to integrate the user administration available in the company
  • By using standards for authentication (OAuth) and replication of users (SCIM), other IAM solutions can also be integrated. This means that the separate maintenance of internal application users in the cloud can be dispensed with and users do not have to re-enter their login data when logging on to cloud applications (SSO)
  • Customers can comply with high security policies with the standards and certifications offered
  • External users can be managed separately in the cloud, for example to enable access to digital workplaces
  • For external access, the BTP is an additional security layer compared to direct access to the corporate network
  • With the Business Technology Platform, an additional security layer for external access can be built in
  • The API Management Service offers various security measures for authentication, thread protection or policies
  • Customers do not have to allow direct external access to their company network and receive a modern, secure option for offering APIs
  • Use of a central access to business applications with the Work Zone Services
  • Access to functions/apps from several applications is offered centrally. It is not necessary to leave the work environment to switch between applications
  • Improvement of the user experience, also through personalisation
