The Base of Digital Transformation
How quickly companies can respond to market changes depends largely on the flexibility of their IT systems: the SAP Business Technology Platform makes it possible to digitalize processes even across system boundaries and unites applications as well as data in a single environment. It is the ideal foundation for tackling the digital transformation.
Becoming an Intelligent Enterprise
Make your business agile and flexible with a platform that seamlessly integrates systems – whether on the cloud or on premise: The SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) makes it possible to bring together data from different sources, develop cloud-based applications and integrate systems. It provides various analytics options and access to technologies such as machine learning.
SAP BTP provides tools, applications and extensions to quickly extend and connect systems. And it does so without high implementation costs. This makes the solution also interesting for medium-sized companies – the smart way to become an intelligent enterprise.
The SAP BTP Technology Portfolio
SAP BTP is the strategic foundation for all companies using a SAP system landscape. The Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering makes it possible to add SAP BTP solutions to the system landscape in a modular manner according to actual company needs – without having to install additional technical tools. This makes it a very flexible and cost-effective solution.
It is compatible both for purely cloud-based landscapes and hybrid forms of operation with on-premises landscapes. Even if you have not yet migrated to SAP S/4HANA, the services and applications are still available for you. In the event of a migration, all applications developed on SAP BTP are retained. The major hyperscalers such as Amazon Web Services, Alibaba Cloud, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform are all available as cloud infrastructure.
The integrated SAP BTP offering with on-premises and cloud-native technologies and services bundles four technology portfolios in a single, unified environment:
Quick System Expansion
Getting ideas to market quickly – that’s a real competitive advantage in our fast-paced business world. With SAP BTP solutions, applications can be developed and deployed in less time than ever before. One special feature of this option is that application development takes place outside the ERP system without affecting core processes – following the “keep the core clean” principle. This significantly reduces the effort required for updates and automatic tests. With SAP Build, a low-code solution, and the SAP Build Apps functionality, application development is fast and convenient.
A large number of pre-configured workflow solutions also make it easier to automate processes across the company. Very often, employees still spend a lot of time on manual, repetitive tasks at the PC, such as data entry. This is where SAP Build Process Automation comes in with its SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation feature.
SAP Build Work Zone gives users access to all relevant applications, processes and information – not only on desktops, but also on mobile devices.
Central Integration Basis
SAP BTP excels in particular with its integration capability. With a number of pre-configured integration packages enable companies to merge their business applications and processes distributed across cloud and on premises environments relatively easily and quickly. The central solution for this is the SAP Integration Suite: it can be used to integrate both SAP and non-SAP systems and even digital processes from business partners and public administration into a comprehensive system landscape.
Optimal data Processing and Analysis
The correct handling of data is a decisive factor for business success and sustainable growth. SAP BTP enables efficient data management with tools such as SAP Datasphere. The software-as-a-service solution integrates data from different source systems and offers tools for data modelling – even in real time. Access all data in hybrid and cloud environments, regardless of where the data is stored.
To make the most of the data, advanced analytics and planning solutions such as SAP Analytics Cloud are critical. They give companies deep insights into their processes and help forecast future developments – an important basis for making informed decisions.
New Level for Companies
SAP BTP offers the possibility to integrate intelligent technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) into your IT environment. AI plays an increasingly important role for companies and takes them to a completely new level: they can redesign and automate processes or open up new business areas. In addition to SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation, another noteworthy feature is the SAP Document Information Extraction, which can automate the processing of incoming invoices, payment notifications and sales orders.

Which We Implement Very Successfully:
SAP Integration Suite – for Lean Processes
Are you using too many different applications from different providers? This is where SAP Integration Suite, an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), comes in. It can be used to integrate on-premises and cloud applications and seamlessly connect data, processes and solutions from SAP or non-SAP sources to an existing system landscape. This can be done particularly fast thanks to numerous pre-configured integration templates, out-of-the-box functions that integrate non-SAP services and applications, numerous API interfaces and business events.
Companies who run the on-premises middleware SAP Process Integration (SAP PI) or SAP Process Orchestration (SAP PO) would do well to move it into the cloud and migrate to SAP Integration Suite. Early migration promises to be significantly more cost-effective, especially since maintenance for SAP PI and SAP PO will be discontinued at the end of 2027 and, in the case of extended maintenance, at the end of 2030. SAP Integration Suite offers a variety of partner solutions for regression testing and tools to test migration scenarios.
SAP Integration Suite streamlines processes, increases efficiency and improves the user experience, which can significantly increase profitability.
Developing and Automating Applications with SAP Build
SAP Build can be used to optimise numerous business areas such as finance, procurement or human resources. The low-code solution is used to develop and automate enterprise applications. The applications are made available to all employees via a central entry point, the SAP Work Zone. The SAP Build suite covers three areas: process automation, application development and company website building.
SAP Build Process Automation provides intuitive functionalities that enable developers and business users to customise, improve and innovate workflow processes and automate manual tasks with visual drag-and-drop tools. The solution makes this possible through comprehensive robotic process automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Companies would be hard-pressed to find a faster way to respond to changing business requirements.
Creating applications without traditional programming – this is what SAP Build Apps enables via drag-and-drop. The applications can be connected to data sources and made available on SAP BTP. In terms of functionality, the apps do not come close to customer-specific developments, but are suitable for simple business use cases.
All the most important information at a glance: with SAP Build Work Zone, users can quickly and easily create corporate websites that bundle important applications, workflows and documents on a single topic. Employees can access them flexibly from any device, including smartphones and tablets.
What problem do you want to solve? SAP BTP is a flexible modular system that offers services and solutions for a wide range of requirements. These solutions can also be tailored to individual customer needs. We can help you find suitable solutions and adapt them to your needs in such a way that you can use SAP BTP profitably for yourself.
Regardless of whether you want to continue using your existing on-premises SAP ECC landscape or switch directly to SAP S/4HANA – SAP BTP solutions can be used for both; without high implementation costs. Applications developed on SAP BTP also remain intact when migrated to SAP S/4HANA. We conduct a comprehensive analysis of your initial situation and show you the optimal path forward.
