For many SAP customers utilizing the RISE with SAP offering, the adoption of our intelligent ERP (SAP S/4HANA) has opened the door to the speed, agility, and visibility of connected networks, artificial intelligence, and cutting-edge business models. But, more importantly, it’s becoming a core source of business data collected by every application, function, and device the company owns and shares.

Moving to SAP S/4HANA and using the software’s capabilities is the beginning of a significant transformation opportunity. Key business advantages can be achieved by augmenting SAP S/4HANA with a combination of database and data management, analytics, application development and integration, and intelligent technologies – which are available through SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP).

The reason why our customers find the use of SAP BTP with their deployment of SAP S/4HANA compelling is the ease in which they can “deliver business agility while keeping their core clean.” In other words, organizations can innovate with latest cloud technologies while stripping away the burden of complexity, such as data silos, disconnected applications, outdated information, disparate processes, and unexpected downtime.

A clean core allows businesses to maintain a pristine digital environment while driving cumulative customization that makes sense for their business processes and operations, as well as their partners and customers. This step in the transformation journey removes the risk of low- or no-value modifications that can get in the way of addressing future business needs. Whenever there is an SAP S/4HANA enhancement is needed, SAP BTP can be evaluated to integrate seamlessly and enable changes – ranging from embedded analytics to scaling process extensions across global locations.

In addition to securing the integrity of SAP S/4HANA, SAP BTP enables organizations to benefit from fundamental scenarios, including:

  • Accelerate and simplify migration: Migrate and maintain relevant data, deliver trusted master data, and keep the core clean by decoupling custom code.

  • Optimize and automate business processes: Unify, optimize, and automate processes with more than 2K prebuilt integrations, 150+ prebuilt bots and comprehensive tools.

  • Innovate to gain a sustained competitive advantage: Unlock the power of live data from SAP S/4HANA to deliver real-time insights and build new business models.

Furthermore, by unleashing the power of their enterprise data, our customers can explore the use of cloud-native data warehouse, analytics, automation and management solutions, planning strategies, and new concepts for their business models and processes.

Complement, extend, and integrate with any other solution (SAP, partner, or third party) and use the data model and business services on SAP BTP to connect it all. As part of the RISE with SAP offering, you can drive your innovation faster with SAP BTP consumption credits to fast-track your move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud and support faster, cohesive, and future-ready innovation.
