Developers: Learn and Try SAP Business Technology Platform, our Cloud Solution FREE

In our fast-paced world of technology, businesses are constantly striving to stay ahead of the curve. However, as a company that has relied on traditional on-premise SAP systems for years, moving to the cloud can be intimidating. Will existing systems work well with the new system? What model is best – integrating on-premise parts with cloud solutions or completely moving to the cloud? What services and applications are needed? What about the risks and costs?

To explore the possibilities of SAP’s cloud solutions, SAP offers a free 90-day trial of SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP). This provides the opportunity to gain more insights into what SAP BTP has to offer at zero cost before deciding if the solution is the best fit.

SAP BTP provides a comprehensive cloud-based platform-as-a-service that empowers businesses to develop, integrate, and extend applications, thus enabling them to embrace digital transformation. To empower users to reach this goal and, for example, connect existing SAP systems, SAP BTP offers a wide range of services, application runtime environments, integration tools, analytics, and more.

At the core of SAP BTP lies the SAP BTP cockpit – it is the entry point for developers to the SAP Business Technology Platform. The centralized web-based management tool allows developers to manage and configure their applications and services within the SAP BTP environment. It provides a visual interface to access and explore various services, monitor application performance, set up security, and manage resources.

With only a few clicks, users can sign up for a free 90-day SAP BTP trial and gain access to the SAP BTP cockpit. There, developers can explore the administration functions of the cockpit and dive deeper into a wide array of services. To establish secure and reliable connections between cloud applications and on-premise systems, SAP BTP offers a connectivity service. There are also integration services – e.g., SAP Integration Suite and SAP Master Data Integration, and many more.

SAP BTP’s comprehensive services and their possibilities, accessed through the SAP BTP cockpit, can help users drive their digital transformation and enhance sustainability within their organization by reducing the need for physical infrastructure and optimizing resource usage.

To better understand what SAP BTP has to offer and what else can be accomplished with the power of the platform, SAP offers a wide array of trainings, documentation, user journeys, and certifications:

      Regarding BTP let me just add a quote here that in my opinion perfectly sums up why BTP never took off with the majority of developers and probably never will:

      Never underestimate the hurdle BTP is. [...] Finding skilled people in the BTP area is a challenge and SAP does not make it easy. If you ever had the fun experience of onboarding to BTP free tier, you know: hell no. The SAP delivered experience is unique. Just be happy that you do not have to use a pigeon to send a fax to SAP. You still must beg to be added at some random time as a BTP customer, not to mention to end the account. The thrill each month when SAP sends you the bill for free tier, because, well, you never know if SAP decided to ignore the free tier part and charge you $$$. Of when they decide to tell you that the 0 $ bill you got months ago isn’t valid any longer and they now want you to pay for the free tier service. Welcome to SAP. BTP free tier is the proof that SAP has absolutely no idea how cloud works, or what the internet is. Actual cloud companies deliver on their promise and offer a great experience.
