Integration Innovations on SAP BTP
Introducing SAP Integration Suite, advanced event mesh
Have you ever stopped and thought about the fact that everything seems to be happening a lot faster these days? Stopping to smell the roses might seem tricky. This is not just a reality in our private life, it’s also true in the business world. That’s why knowing what’s going on in your business environment, a.k.a “situational awareness”, is crucial, so you can react immediately to significant changes. And by the way, that’s exactly what an event is: a significant change. And events happen in real time.
SAP Integration Suite, advanced event mesh is a new SAP Business Technology Platform offering to distribute billions of daily business events in real time on a global scale.
Advanced Event Mesh takes your situational awareness to the next level – and turns you into a real time company.
Where do these real time events come from? SAP S/4HANA and SAP ECC for example.

Data & Analytics Innovations on SAP BTP
Analytics in MS Excel with SAP S/4HANA Cloud as a live source
For financials and reporters, a direct link to a Microsoft Office environment is key in their daily job. With SAP Analytics Cloud, running on SAP Business Technology Platform, we have an answer.
With the new SAP Analytics Cloud, add-in for Microsoft Office, you can create analytics in Excel 365 on top of a live SAP S/4HANA Cloud system (2208 release).
By declaring the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system as a “live source” in SAP Analytics Cloud, you’ll have the freedom to analyze or slice and dice data in any Excel Desktop or Online version.
You can get the SAP Analytics Cloud, add-in for Microsoft Office directly from the Microsoft Store as an application and use it on Windows or Mac.

You can’t wait for others to start using it. But then something happens – there are exceptions that you had not considered. Suddenly you need approvals and additional data fed into the process. All things you had not accounted for. Worry not! SAP Process Automation on SAP Business Technology Platform is the solution you’ve been waiting for.
With our newly launched API trigger for SAP Process Automation, you can connect your existing processes and applications in a simple, easy way.
How does this help? This means you can get all the needed approvals and data for the process to run smoothly AND are able to make the necessary decisions based on real, trusty data.

Hello, I'm a bit lost. You state that "SAP Integration Suite, advanced event mesh is a new SAP Business Technology Platform offering to distribute billions of daily business events in real time on a global scale", and that "knowing what’s going on in your business environment, a.k.a 'situational awareness', is crucial" ?
Does that mean that your current customers can't possibly know -- "in real time" -- what's "going on in your business environment", with the older BTP 'Event Mesh' ? Is (un-Advanced) Event Mesh not capable of 'real time' event distribution ? Can BTP 'Event Mesh' really not distribute events "on a global scale" (but only within a 5-10 km radius) ?
If BTP 'Event Mesh' can indeed easily manage both of those things (and it obviously can), how many SAP clients today actually have to manage "billions of daily business events" ? I'm curious to know how many SAP clients manage to trigger your x125 publicly available business events (available on the very latest version of S/4HANA Cloud) multiplied by several million times, each and every day ?
If 'Event Streaming' means anything, it means 'Event Streaming Analytics': an IoT use case. Whilst it's entirely possible that Advanced Event Mesh (a more recent Solace product ?) is better suited to IoT use cases than classic Event Mesh, don't you think you should state that clearly somewhere to avoid customer confusion on your product offering ? Isn't it better to inform them that almost no clients will benefit by moving from Event Mesh to Advanced Event Mesh ?
let me try to shed some light on this:
I hope this has given some additional background. By the way, I never liked the name Advanced Event Mesh since I am myself coming from SAP Event Mesh. Now that I have worked quite some with Advanced Event Mesh I believe the name fits.
