Industry cloud is SAP’s strategy to extend the intelligent suite with innovative industry cloud solutions built by SAP and partners in the cloud, built on SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) and running on the cloud infrastructure of our Hyperscaler partners. The design of the industry cloud reflects our customers’ core business needs within their industries.
