SAP BTP (Business Technology Platform) and it’s 5 Portfolios


SAP BTP (Business Technology Platform) is basically a Platform as a Service (PaaS) and it takes SAP’s products, services, and solutions, and puts them under one roof.

And when we start exploring on what is SAP BTP? Currently we can see lot of blogs and content explaining, it is a platform containing the below four portfolios.

  • Database and data management
  • Analytics
  • Application development and integration
  • Intelligent technologies

But if we check in sap site there are no more 4 portfolios mentioned above. We have the below 5 portfolios. Instead of application development and Integration, we now have application development and automation. Data base and data management has been merged with Data & Analytics.

      Thanks Kiran,

      I wish SAP would adapt that slide that shows BTP as one box/item to show this portfolio view.
      As we take BTP chats internally, we get into these debates about BTP being one item.  Then we try and explain it is not one item, that it is a container holding multiple items - I heard last week 96 services.

      Grateful for this post, I will follow it.
