Every company wants to innovate. To be out first with the newest, the best, the cutting-edge product, service, or app. But innovation isn’t easy. Even when a revolutionary idea presents itself, there still needs to be the right platform in place for development and enough support to market the idea to an interested client base.

To keep up with innovation, tech companies need to make sure they are dealing with the latest and most relevant technologies, and SAP is no exception. While we started as an ERP company, our framework for the Intelligent Enterprise shows a complete portfolio, including an intelligent suite of applications, a digital platform with SAP® Cloud Platform, SAP HANA® Data Management Suite, and intelligent SAP Leonardo technologies.

Currently, over 76% of the world’s transaction revenue touches an SAP system daily (Source : SAP Global Corporate Fast Facts) . Customers trust us to help keep their businesses running smoothly, reliably, and securely. And those same customers look to ISVs to help them accelerate development, and to jump-start their organizations down this path to innovation. SAP is partnering with ISVs with whom we share a common vision, partners who are looking for ways to maximize their reach and impact in their unique markets. Will this type of collaboration benefit you as a software developer? We believe it will, due to both the strength of the marketplace that SAP can provide and the power of our technology that you can access.

The digital era is giving way to intelligence era, marked by intelligent technologies such as machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Intelligent enterprises need to effectively use their data assets to achieve their desired outcomes faster with lower risk and focus employees on higher-value tasks to accelerate value creation.

The global economic growth of the last nine years has been powered largely by technology. Record corporate profits and new business models can all be tied to technology-driven innovation. On average, an S&P 500 company is now being replaced once every two weeks. This “tumble rate” is accelerating – with the difference between winners and losers tied to their ability to embrace digital technologies. The next decade will, of course, bring about even greater tectonic shifts.

To address these challenges, businesses need to make sense of a growing volume of data, and innovate with relentless clock-speed. In other words, they need to accelerate value creation. This is the heart of the Intelligent Enterprise.

To build an intelligent enterprise, you need to be equipped with the development tools of the future. SAP Cloud Platform helps ensure that our partners can quickly develop flexible applications to meet evolving business needs.

Every successful enterprise today must address three key challenges:

• Delivering a next-generation customer experience
• Maximizing cost synergies to fund innovation
• Better engaging employees to attract and retain top talent

We provide intelligent, integrated applications that enable our customers to automate their day-to-day business processes and better interact with their customers, suppliers, and employees. These applications are industry-specific, global, and applicable to large, midsize, and small enterprises.

With SAP Leonardo, we will embed intelligent technologies in our customers’ core processes, enabling them to use their data to detect patterns, predict outcomes, and suggest actions. For customers who want to innovate even faster, we will offer industry innovation kits and open innovation services, which apply design thinking methodologies to new business models by industry. Cutting-edge technologies such as blockchain, IoT, analytics, and machine learning are available.

Integral to advancing the Intelligent Enterprise is SAP Cloud Platform, a vital development tool for ISVs. SAP Cloud Platform is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that delivers in-memory capabilities, core platform services, and unique microservices for building and extending intelligent, mobile-enabled cloud applications. The platform is designed to accelerate digital transformation by helping you quickly, easily, and economically develop the exact application you need – without investing in on-premise infrastructure. Based on open standards, SAP Cloud Platform offers complete flexibility and control over your choice of clouds, frameworks, and applications.
