SAP Sapphire Orlando – It’s a Wrap!
SAP’s mission is to make the world run better and improve people’s lives. As we work to fulfill this purpose each day, SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) brings together data and analytics, artificial intelligence, application development, automation, and integration in one, unified environment that is optimized for SAP applications. Watch this short video to learn more.
At SAP Sapphire, we announced a whole host of new capabilities that help organizations meet their business needs. Thank you to everyone who attended the event (in person and virtually) and to all the teams across SAP that worked to make this event so special. For those who couldn’t attend the event, I’d recommend listening to the Realize the Power of Becoming an Intelligent, Sustainable Enterprise keynote by Christian Klein (SAP CEO) and Julia White (SAP CMSO) and Activate The Power of SAP Business Technology Platform to Accelerate Innovation keynote.
Here are the top three BTP announcements we made at Sapphire. You can read through the full list of announcements on the SAP Sapphire News Guide.
Accelerate Application Development with Low-Code and No-Code Tools
SAP’s unified low-code/no-code development tools empower you to build enterprise-grade applications and automate complex tasks. Our extensive component library, unlimited logic functions, and intuitive drag-and-drop user interface makes it possible to create pixel-perfect applications and extensions without writing any code, no matter your skill level.
Since SAP AppGyver became generally available last Fall, we’ve seen incredible adoption! We’re continuing that momentum with a new integration between SAP AppGyver and SAP Service Cloud. You can now jumpstart your no-code application development with access to the largest library of industry-specific templates and visual tools. Learn more here.
Our intuitive no-code workflow management and robotic process automation offering, SAP Process Automation, also has new enhancements. You can easily build modular packages of combined workflows and processes through a drag-and-drop front end. The best part is IT teams can rest easy knowing they control all the data access, ensuring data compliance and governance.

Give Data Purpose with SAP’s Data and Analytics Solutions
For a digital transformation to have a lasting and continual impact, it requires harnessing the power of all your data. But data is often spread across the enterprise, making it a large task to leverage all your data that is rich with potential insights. In the world of Esports, for example, a massive amount of data is available behind every online match. Watch this video to hear how Team Liquid, Esports World Champion, leveraged SAP HANA Cloud and SAP BTP to efficiently collect, analyze, and use data to inform their real-time, in-game strategies.
In addition to harnessing the power of data, organizations are also revaluating how to effectively plan. SAP’s Extended Planning and Analysis solution establishes a simplified, comprehensive planning process by bringing together financial, supply chain, and workforce planning – creating one connected plan across functional areas in your organization. And, with new integration between SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud, your plan can extend across all SAP applications!
Transform your business with Artificial Intelligence
The digital transformation journey doesn’t stop with data and analytics. With Artificial Intelligence (AI) natively embedded in core business processes, you can transform how you run every part of your business. You can turn concepts into market reality, sourcing into competitive advantage, prospects into lifelong customers, and potential into performance. For example, Schweizerische Bundesbahnen SBB, a transportation company based out of Switzerland, has achieved an automation rate of 99% and can automatically assign nearly all incoming payments correctly with SAP Cash Application. You can learn more about SAP’s Artificial Intelligence here.
In addition to the embedded AI business processes, you can make your business applications and processes more intelligent with the power of AI on SAP BTP. With pre-built AI models, easily scale and extend your business applications across multi-cloud environments. And do so knowing that SAP AI technology complies with all data privacy and governance regulations. Our AI Ethics Code was among the first for global software companies, and we’re continuing to expand on it every year.
