Advantages of SAP BTP

Thanks to semantic integration and contextualization, customers can immediately use the data from SAP applications without losing the business context and business significance of the data. This leads to faster time to value and lower total cost of ownership.

According to one source, companies have reached their break-even point after six months in some cases by using SAP BTP. SAP BTP’s available business content packages and use cases include more than 3,300 APIs, more than 260 data and analytics packages, more than 2,600 preconfigured integrations, and more than 300 SAP Process Automation packages with business rules, data models and more.

BTP enables acceleration of development processes and faster project delivery through the use of no-code and code-first development tools and preconfigured, industry-specific content and use cases.

The platform is tailored for a smart, sustainable enterprise and enables the deployment of business-critical solutions in a cloud environment managed by SAP. Adaptations of business processes to the needs of the company can be carried out without the need for maintenance and the use of the preferred cloud provider is possible.

In addition, the integration of SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning with SAP Business Technology Platform gives you a 360-degree view of your data and business processes. This creates the foundation for informed decision-making and more efficient management of your business operations.

SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning

SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning is an essential part of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform and refers to the process of provisioning and setting up SAP HANA systems in the cloud environment. It enables organizations to create and manage SAP HANA instances in a cloud-based infrastructure without the need to purchase and operate their own physical hardware.

Here are some key concepts and features of SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning:

  1. Cloud-based provisioning: SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning enables customers to provision SAP HANA databases and applications in a cloud environment, such as on platforms like AWS, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud.
  2. Resource management: The tool enables efficient allocation and management of resources for SAP HANA instances, such as CPU, RAM, and storage, to ensure optimal performance and scalability.
  3. Automation: SAP HANA cloud deployment provides automated processes to quickly set up and configure HANA systems, reducing time-to-market.
  4. Scalability: With SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning, companies can easily scale their SAP HANA instances as needed to adapt to increasing workloads or user demands.
  5. Flexibility: Customers have the option to choose different versions of SAP HANA and options such as multitenancy to meet their specific needs.
