The SAP Cloud Platform - a PaaS Solution

The SAP Cloud Platform (SCP) is a platform for extending and integrating on-premise or cloud systems. It is a PaaS solution. SAP Cloud Platform is the foundation of all SAP Leonardo technologies.

Via the SAP Cloud Platform, companies and SAP users can, for example, develop new applications and apps - for example in the area of the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning or blockchain.

The SAP Cloud Platform thus also serves as an innovation platform because companies can use it to launch entirely new cloud-based applications.

SAP provides companies with a range of offerings on the open platform: various services, functions and tools, each end-to-end. Developers can thus create, extend and integrate their own business applications in the cloud - and also operate them via the cloud.

Extend and complement existing systems

With the help of the SAP Cloud Platform, companies thus gain easy access to new technologies, applications and apps, including in the area of mobile technologies.

The individual cloud services of the SAP Cloud Platform are in principle technical building blocks. With these building blocks, companies can supplement existing systems such as SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA and network their landscape and applications.

On the one hand, the SAP Cloud Platform provides open technologies for this purpose: for example, Java or HTML5. On the other hand, it offers the option of using SAP HANA database technology.

Specialists in development can combine and use the services offered in various ways - most obviously with existing SAP systems and applications. Existing on-premise and cloud solutions, whether SAP or non-SAP, can be expanded and integrated.

In addition, the building blocks can be used as software-as-a-service offerings - such as SAP SucessFactors (an SAP cloud solution for human resources management).

The benefits of the SAP Cloud Platform at a glance

  • Integration of the entire value chain
  • Acceleration of innovations
  • Simplification in the development of enhancements
  • Automation and improvement of business processes
  • Analytics (SAP Cloud Platform Predictive Services, etc.)

Machine Learning - powered by SAP SCP

The SAP Cloud Platform (SCP) also offers the possibility to use Machine Learning without large upfront investments. For example, SAP SCP's predictive services enable companies to identify outliers or create forecasts, impact analyses and simulations.

Machine Learning (ML) uses existing data to generate machine learning models. When these models are used to predict future events, values and information, it is called predictive analytics.

If the prediction of optimal maintenance times is the focus of an ML model, it is called predictive maintenance.

In such a case, maintenance no longer takes place at fixed times or only after a machine has failed, but whenever it is required.

A wide range of applications for predictive analytics

With the predictive services of the SAP Cloud Platform, companies can implement a variety of different scenarios within an ML project.

  • For example, an online store can analyze its previous returns and inform an employee about a possible return directly after the purchase has been completed. This employee can then contact the customer before the goods are shipped.
  • Another scenario would be that data from machines at a manufacturing company can be used to predict the next machine failure. The company can then trigger preventive maintenance measures.
  • SAP customers with a large amount of master data can use SAP Cloud Platform predictive services to identify errors in price, customer or material master data.
  • Likewise, machine learning can be used to predict incoming cash flows and thus optimize liquidity planning.
