SAP Business Technology Platform brings together application development, automation, data and analytics, integration, and AI capabilities into one unified environment optimized for SAP applications. Learn more:

SAP Build on SAP Business Technology Platform was first launched during SAP TechEd in 2022 and new features have been continuously added since then. Our goal is to empower “builders” of all proficiency levels and backgrounds to create innovative solutions that solve real-world problems.

In this edition of SAP BTP Innobytes, we’re diving into SAP Build Apps and SAP Build Work Zone innovations. Testing is a huge (and sometimes overlooked) part of the development process. Check out how you can use sample data in SAP Build Apps. Have you ever had to manually add data entities into your application? If so, you’ll be happy to learn about the new data import feature. SAP Build Work Zone has a new site experience that comes with extra features for content administrators… think spaces, pages, cards and tiles… my, oh, my!

Artificial Intelligence has probably been part of 95% of your conversations lately. Well, it’s top of mind for SAP BTP as well. Check out the new complementary recommendations feature now available for one of our SAP AI Business Services, Personalized Recommendation. What does complementary mean? You’ll have to check out the video to find out 😊

Sample Data Testing and Entity Data Import in SAP Build Apps

We have good news for business users building their applications on SAP Business Technology Platform! We know that developers usually use sample data to test their apps while programming. Now you can do the same... without the programing part!

You can build your low-code applications using SAP Build Apps, drag and drop your UI and logic components, and now use sample data to test if everything is working as you expected.

The best part? You don’t have to wait for real data or risk using sensitive data when testing.

You can also say hello to the new data import feature for your backend entities. It does the heavy lifting for you while importing data from a MS Excel file, so you don’t have to manually type in every entry.

And you can even use a template!

Complementary Recommendations

Delivering efficient and hyper-personalized recommendations is key for any company that wants to improve the overall customer or employee experiences.

With Personalized Recommendation, one of the SAP AI Business Services running on SAP BTP, you can make use of a cloud-based machine learning service that can deliver a unique set of recommendations based on a user’s unique item interaction history and profile.

One of the latest features we introduced is Complementary Recommendations, a way to recommend items that are known to be viewed together in a single session. This is useful for cross and up-selling opportunities in bundle purchases, cart suggestions or even process automation scenarios.

This new functionality comes in addition to the already existing recommendation flavors, such as similar items recommendations and event-driven recommendations.
