The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) provides an environment to build and run full-stack applications on a trusted enterprise-grade platform.
Running such applications side-by-side to SAP solutions such as S/4HANA Cloud, SAP Business ByDesign and SAP Business One requires in particular that these apps fit to the SAP standard and deliver a seamless user experience across solutions and applications.
For this goal we benefit from technology alignments supported by BTP services and programming models, such as for example:
a consistent concept of openness based on OData APIs and standardized business events,
secure and harmonized approaches for process integration, API-led integration, event-based integration and data integration,
a central identity and access management based on the SAP Identity Authentication Service,
a consistent business object design supported by a model-driven development approach and reuse components,
a harmonized look & feel with UI floorplan patterns based on Fiori Elements, UI5 and the SAP Launchpad,
and consistent implementations of SAP product standards.
The repository provides two approaches to get started and to explore BTP capabilities:
Deploy and run the sample application as provided and explore the features and the code
Re-build the application from scratch following detailed step-by-step tutorials and an incremental development approach
Partner Reference Application on GitHub
The Partner Reference Application is a tool for your kick-start for application development on the BTP. If you want to go beyond this BTP use case and explore all other capabilities of the BTP, then the following resources are excellent entry points:
"Capire", the home of the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP) provides you all details of the programming model that we used in our sample application.
The SAP Discovery Center is your one-stop shop for all SAP BTP resources. Access the mission catalog to find use cases and tutorials, and check out the service catalog if you are interested in specific BTP services.
