When joining sessions at SAP TechEd many participants who are already familiar with the SAP products, are very interested to learn more about certain technologies and products. Others who are new in the SAP universe might be wondering what all these technologies and products are used for.

What both audiences have in common: they have very specific business needs and want to understand how SAP can help them solve some of the related challenges.

At SAP TechEd in 2021 (Nov 16 - 18) SAP will integrate in several sessions how the SAP Business Technology Platform can be used in real-world scenarios. This helps to put the technologies within a broader scope and shows how SAP products can be used to tackle these use cases for SAP Business Technology Platform.

This blog post provides you an overview around the use cases that are in focus for SAP TechEd in 2021:

  1. Extend SAP S/4HANA business processes on SAP BTP by leveraging DevOps

  2. Setup for SAP S/4HANA side-by-side UI extensions on SAP BTP

  3. Automate data extraction from business documents with SAP AI Business Services and SAP Intelligent RPA

  4. Explore your Hyperscaler data with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud

  5. Gain transparency into supplier invoice and purchase order processing

  6. Route traffic between SAP Cloud Integration tenants

  7. Extend your business workflow with Microsoft Teams and Outlook

  8. Calculate employee seniority with event-driven extensions

  9. Create a custom mobile app to extend HR capabilities

  10. Use e-signatures to streamline new-hire onboarding processes

  11. Building an analytical reporting solution on top of your IoT sensor data

  12. Enable Category Management Insights for Digital with Google Analytics and BigQuery


Each of these use cases has been derived from real-world customer projects and requirements. The use cases explain how the various components of the SAP Business Technology Platform can be used along with other SAP and non-SAP products to help you achieve your targeted business outcome. All use cases are available on the SAP Business Technology platform use case page and their implementation steps on SAP Discovery Center will go live before SAP TechEd this year.

Depending on your experience and the use cases you are interested in, you find below a list of recommended sessions to learn more about the used technologies and products.

Best,
Rui
