Application Development Innovations on SAP BTP
Digital Experience – Cloud Identity Integration
Automated user lifecycle management and authorization assignment are key requirements for ensuring a secure and persona-specific digital experience on SAP Business Technology Platform.
We are excited to announce the availability of the (improved) integration setup with SAP Cloud Identity Services, specifically Identity Provisioning. This integration setup is now covering both SAP Launchpad service and SAP Work Zone. You can leverage Identity Provisioning to manage internal as well as external user and user list assignment in SAP Work Zone and user/role assignment in SAP Launchpad service as an alternative to the sub-account level role collections.

SAP Private Link service on Azure
Security departments often require you to avoid communication over the public internet between your SAP systems in your hyperscaler account and your extensions and integrations in SAP Business Technology Platform.
We are delighted to announce that the SAP Private Link service on Azure is now generally available. You can now access selected services created in your own Azure account via a private network connection from SAP BTP. SAP Private Link service currently supports connections from SAP BTP, Cloud Foundry runtime and certain services on top to selected Azure Private Link resources.
Next, we are working on support for additional infrastructures, scenarios, and services.

Data and Analytics Innovations on SAP BTP
Integration of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning
We often hear from customers that they are facing challenges to combine all steering relevant plan and actual data in the cloud.
To alleviate this challenge, SAP is bringing two integral parts of SAP Business Technology Platform closer together – SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud.
These two are already the best power couple in the market for integrated data management and BI. And now, we are also connecting them with a bi-directional data transfer for planning use cases. This gives us one common data foundation for Planning and Analytics and makes Data Warehouse Cloud the single source of truth for all steering-relevant data.
Learn more here in the SAP Community and stay tuned as our journey continues with the objective to offer live planning in SAP Analytics Cloud on top of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud in 2023.
