Service mapping of SAP Cloud Platform Neo and Cloud Foundry Environments

SAP Cloud Platform offers two environments for application development – Neo and Cloud Foundry. One of the frequents question which I get from existing SAP Cloud Platform customers is around the considerations when moving their apps to Cloud Foundry environment. In this blog post, I have attempted to provide a mapping of SAP Cloud Platform services between the environment. For example, if you have built a Fiori app or mobile app leveraging services in Neo environment, you can scroll through the table to see the equivalent services required in Cloud Foundry. Please note that this blog is not a guide to help you migrate the apps/interfaces between these environments. You will have to refer to the respective documentations on migration path.

I have referenced the SAP Cloud Platform Regions and Service Portfolio and SAP Cloud Platform estimator to identify the services in the respective environments.

There are many business services specific to LoB solutions like Real Spend, SAP Customer Order Sourcing, SAP Omnichannel Promotion Pricing etc which I have not covered. There are also few services which do not run on standard SAP Cloud Platform regions for example Big Data service, SAP LiveLink, Rapid Application Development by Mendix etc which I’ve excluded from the list. I have also excluded foundation services like Connectivity, Destination, Authorization and Trust Management services in the below mapping.

Please note that this is my own compilation of the service mappings and I would recommend you to check the corresponding service roadmap to ensure you have the latest information. I will try to keep this upto date as possible. Feel free to comment on any additional services which I might have missed.

  • Great summary, Murali!
    Awesome to see this nicely structured.

    I was scratching my head to think of something missing and the only one I could think of is Automation Pilot, nicely described by Kiril Gavrailov over here. It’s also a good example of a service, which despite of being deployed on CF, can be used and allows automation both in the context of CF and Neo environments. In that sense – it’s similar to Identity Authentication or Alert Notification services. Identity Provisioning is another interesting example, which although running on Neo (which is the least interesting part about it) is able to provision users across a large variety of systems, including Neo, CF, ABAP, Google G-Suite, Azure AD, etc. Therefore I’m a but puzzled to see that it’s marked as not available on CF environment.

    Having that in mind – probably it’s a good idea to add a 3rd “Global” column, which denotes the services which are [consumable/deliver value] globally, irrespective of environment. I guess this will make your life easier when maintaining the list above, as the mantra for every service is to maximize its addressable market.
