What Is SAP Cloud Platform?

SAP Cloud Platform is an enterprise platform-as-a-service (enterprise PaaS) that provides comprehensive application development services and capabilities, which lets you build, extend, and integrate business applications in the cloud.

SAP Cloud Platform is SAP’s innovative cloud development and deployment platform. It is supported by multiple cloud infrastructure providers and enables innovative technologies such as the Internet of Things, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big data, thereby enabling you to achieve business agility and accelerate digital transformation across your business.

Scenarios and Major Use Cases

At its core, SAP Cloud Platform enables you to do the following:

  • Extend on-premise and cloud solutions. Personalize and extend your existing applications, regardless of whether they run on-premise or in the cloud, to achieve agility and go to market faster.
  • Integrate on-premise and cloud solutions. Bring together disparate systems and IT landscapes to streamline your business processes and increase efficiency.
  • Develop new cloud applications. Create new cloud applications with a small capital investment in software and hardware.
SAP Scenarios and usecases

Environments

Environments constitute the actual platform-as-a-service offering of SAP Cloud Platform that allows for the development and administration of business applications. Each of the environments provides at least one application runtime and comes with its own domain model, user and role management logic, and tools (for example, command line utility). Given below are the different environments supported by SAP

  • Cloud Foundry Environment
  • ABAP Environment
  • Kyma Environment

Capabilities, Services, and Regions

According to your preferred development environment and your use cases, you may want to consume a set of services that are provided by SAP Cloud Platform. For more information, see Capabilities and Services and SAP Cloud Platform Regions and Service Portfolio.

You can deploy applications in different regions. Each region represents the location of a data center, the physical location (for example, Europe, US East) where applications, data, or services are hosted. These data centers are operated either by SAP or by our partner Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Alibaba Cloud . You can optimize application performance (response time, latency) by selecting a region close to your users. For more information, see the documentation of the regions under the respective environment you are using.

Integration with SAP and Non-SAP Software

SAP Cloud Platform facilitates secure integration with on-premise systems that are running software from SAP and other vendors. Using platform services such as the Connectivity service applications can establish secure connections to on-premise solutions, enabling integration scenarios with your cloud-based applications
