SAP’s BTP (Business Technology Platform) continues to generate a lot of momentum. Key to its popularity is BTP’s ability to assist in addressing some of the volatility currently reshaping today’s enterprises:
- Economic recession and continued unpredictability in customer demand
- New initiatives, including sustainability, are placing new demands on organizations
- Technology disruptions including end-of-life and obsolescence
In this blog, I will explore the top 10 ways BTP can help address these challenges by reducing costs, improving scalability, enhancing operational resilience, and fostering innovation.
Cloud Infrastructure Optimization:
Leverage the scalability of SAP BTP’s cloud infrastructure to optimize resource allocation and reduce infrastructure costs. SAP allows the selection of an infra provider based on region allowing enterprises to choose a leading provider like AWS, Azure, or GCP.
Application Development Efficiency:
Use SAP BTP’s application development tools like BAS and services to build applications faster and cost-effectively. Additionally, low-code and no-code development tools like WorkZone Build Process Automation accelerate development cycles and reduce the need for extensive custom coding.
Data Analytics and Insights:
Utilize SAP BTP’s data analytics capabilities, such as SAP Analytics Cloud and Datasphere, to gain actionable insights from the data. By making data-driven decisions, enterprises can optimize operations, reduce costs, and identify areas for improvement.
Integration and connectivity:
Leverage SAP BTP’s Integration Suite to connect various systems, applications, and data sources seamlessly. By integrating business processes, enterprises can eliminate data silos, improve data accuracy, and reduce maintenance costs associated with multiple systems.
Use SAP BTP’s automation capabilities using the latest Build Process Automation toolset, a combination of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Workflow Automation, to streamline and optimize business processes. Additionally, automating manual tasks reduces human errors, increases efficiency, and see lower operational costs.
Utilize SAP BTP’s Build Workzone capabilities to simplify application access with minimal effort while reducing maintenance. Also, this enables the secured access of required business applications for external users without additional investments.
Further, leverage BTP’s Mobile Services’ range of features and capabilities to help optimize mobile app development, integration, and maintenance processes, resulting in cost reduction and improved efficiency.
Use SAP BTP’s predictive maintenance capabilities to identify equipment failures and maintenance needs proactively. By implementing predictive maintenance strategies, organizations reduce unplanned downtime, optimize maintenance schedules, and avoid costly equipment failures.
Application Lifecycle Management:
Utilize SAP BTP’s ALM tools to streamline application deployment, monitoring, and maintenance processes. Additionally, by automating these tasks, enterprises reduce the time and effort required to manage the applications and lower the associated costs.
Take advantage of SAP BTP’s pay-per-use pricing model and only pay for the services and resources consumed. This allows for cost optimization by aligning the spending with the actual usage, scaling up or down as needed.
Finally, I hope this list works as a starting point in thinking about how BTP could be helpful in your environment. I’d love to hear how these ideas work for you.
