By using the SAP Business Technology Platform, a company is focusing on flexibility, scalability and optimization. For this reason, the SAP BTP also pursues two central objectives:
1. Simplified Integration of Applications
The direct functionality of new applications and their integration into existing systems are often taken for granted – on the basis of legal requirements, for example. This is an essential aspect of the system landscape and, in most cases, also represents serious IT challenges that can be better mastered with the SAP BTP. This is due to there being a large number of pre-configured integration services for SAP and third-party solutions, as well as the SAP Integration Suite. This allows cloud-based applications, on-premise applications and processes to be integrated seamlessly. The SAP BTP can also be used to design and manage APIs and harmonize access to third-party cloud solutions.
2. Future-Orientied Application Development
In addition to easily integrating solutions, you can also start developing your applications. It is possible to adapt your SAP system landscape without major effort thanks to the SAP BTP side-by-side extensions. In addition, the SAP BTP follows the ‘keep the core clean’ philosophy. It therefore enables application logic to be outsourced to external systems, making upgrades even faster, more secure and less complicated – without affecting the functionality of older applications. For a simpler overview of all enhancements and developments, end users can access all web- and cloud-based applications from SAP as well as third-party providers, also on mobile devices, via the launchpad as a single point of entry.
