SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal Released to Customers

The SAP NetWeaver Portal team is very happy to announce to our Portal Community that the SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal is being released to customers. This solution is a significant enhancement to our product portfolio, further strengthening and broadening our current offerings.

We created some blogs around the release of this new product offering:

What is SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal?

SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal is a name for a cloud-based portal solution that delivers easy site creation and social consumption at end user level, while leveraging SAP’s differentiating assets: in-memory computing, business applications and installed base. SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal is based on SAP NetWeaver Cloud platform for Java-based applications and SAP HANA. This solution provides out-of-the-box secure and accelerated integration with customers’ on-premise system, allowing for content reuse. SAP Cloud Platform and SAP HANA - together with SAP Gateway - provide the means for developing new innovative applications that are deployed to the cloud and easily embedded into the sites.

You can explore SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal on this experience site!

In case of questions on SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal you can contact Ifat Shwartz from the Portal Product Management team. Or you can ask a question in the SCN forum for Cloud Portal.
