Update: added March 2024 edition

Back in January 2022, we had a crazy idea to create a monthly video series for #SAPBTP enthusiasts that would provide fresh, snackable SAP BTP innovation highlights. The goal was to share a continuous stream of updates with our community that would also be enjoyable to watch.

SAP BTP Innobytes was born! Our first edition went live in April 2022 and I think it's fair to say, with about 24 videos released and 73 innovations shared, we've come farther than we ever expected.

The best part is... we are not done. Every month we'll be releasing new videos, accompanied by a blog post to share the latest and greatest innovation highlights for SAP BTP. You can expect to learn about new features delivered across our entire portfolio - application development, automation, data, analytics, integration and artificial intelligence - we cover it all!

Our motto: Keeping up to date on the latest SAP BTP news and innovations should be easy – and fun!

Curious to learn more? I've compiled the SAP BTP Innobytes videos from 2024 and 2023. Check them out and see for yourself!
