A Platform for Innovation for SAP Partners to Build Applications – HANA Cloud Platform

SAP HANA Cloud Platform and the Partner Ecosystem Provide Services for Digital Transformation  .

Using SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP customers, partners, software vendors, developers, and startups can create, deploy, and secure extensions to SAP’s cloud and on-premise solutions, as well as develop modern applications that seamlessly integrate with SAP and non-SAP applications. They can then make these apps and solutions available on the SAP HANA App Center at, giving other customers an easy and seamless adoption and deployment experience. This means that companies can cut complexity out of the mix and run simple with a solid set of core applications that natively leverage the in-memory power of SAP HANA, extended by an SAP HANA Cloud Platform-based agility layer. With this agility, partners and customers can build new products quickly to respond to market trends, pressures, or opportunities present in the digital economy.  Check out here Partners can easily build applications and become an Application development partner here

Like most SAP technologies, SAP HANA Cloud Platform benefits from the vast ecosystem of SAP partners that are working to deliver specialized solutions and extensions to suit a vast array of industries and processes. And partners are eager to use the platform, which helps them reach a market of more than 290,000 SAP customers. 

“Our partner ecosystem is rich in ideas, innovation, and the ability to deliver what customers need to be digital businesses,” says Marc Geall, Senior Vice President of SAP HANA Cloud Platform Innovation within SAP’s Global Partner Operations group

SAP partners are already using SAP HANA Cloud Platform to provide real-world benefits to customers similarly to how they do with solutions such as SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA). More examples of Partners sharing their experience can be seen below.

SAP HANA Cloud Platform provides benefits to companies of all sizes. Traditional SAP customers can empower their line-of-business organizations by extending internal applications and delivering user-friendly applications to any user on any device — and, more important, connecting their enterprise to the digital economy. For startup companies, SAP HANA Cloud Platform presents a great technical landscape for building applications on a single platform and leveraging capabilities of SAP HANA and differentiated business services, and provides them with exposure to the SAP customer base. And traditional SAP partners can quickly build modern applications using open standards, specific skillsets, and intellectual property without having to manually configure library files and functions, saving a considerable amount of time.
