What is SAP’s Industry Cloud and why is it awesome? With innovative industry cloud solutions from SAP and SAP Partners you can drive cost-effective transformation and sustainable growth. Industry cloud gives SAP customers access to vertical solutions that drive tangible business outcomes. Industry cloud is SAP’s strategy to extend the intelligent suite with cutting-edge industry cloud solutions. These solutions are built or integrated by SAP and partners on the SAP Business Technology Platform and are interoperable with the intelligent suite.

Have you heard of the recently launched Partner Academies, and why these are awesome, too? Partner Academies are a proven approach which is already successfully used by SAP for delivering customer workshops, and now also offered for partner use. They enable partners and their customers to see how SAP Business Technology Platform can help achieve desired outcomes. Academies offer access to pre-configured landscapes with guided product tours and in-depth hands-on exercises which can be used to deliver workshops for customers and colleagues.

So, if you are developing industry cloud solutions, you may want to get your hands dirty with hands-on exposure to the services required to build your application.

We are pleased to introduce the App Development Extension Suite (Technical Academy), supporting SAP Partners in building industry cloud solutions. This Technical Academy contains many of the building blocks defined in the Architecture and Development Guide for Industry Cloud Solutions - which was released at SAP TechEd in November 2021 - and provides a great knowledge foundation for building applications using SAP BTP in line with this guidance. In this guide, you will get a lot more details and recommendations on how to build your industry cloud solution, such as information about cloud qualities, runtime environments, usage metering, and many references that point you to information in other guides on

Our Technical Academy offering will also help prepare your teams to understand, position and build solutions with SAP BTP for SAP’s Industry Cloud and realize the Intelligent Enterprise for our joint customers.
