Introduction to Developer’s Corner

Want to know about the latest and greatest product updates and features enhancements of SAP Cloud Platform Integration? Then, our developer’s corner is your one stop shop!

Here, you will learn everything about the new features in SAP Cloud Platform Integration, focusing on usage with all the 5 W’s & 1 H answered – why do we need this feature, when and where should this be used, what problem is it solving, who can use this and how should this be used with common mistakes to be avoided. All this and more, described with real-life examples by our product team and developers who built it.

Also newly introduced to our Developer’s corner is a series of blogs from our Customer Success Team who work closely with SAP application teams for building their integration content as well as co-innovate with our customers are partners. Blogs from our customer success team will provide you insights on how complex and real integration use-cases can be achieved with the product.

This is an effort from our side to help our community users to be abreast with the monthly product enhancements and is complementary to our product documentation.

The section will features blogs covering enhancements in various aspects of the product like tooling, runtime, connectivity via the numerous adapters, B2B capabilities etc and will be regularly updated with the blogs on newer capabilities released.
