By adopting proven AWS and SEIDOR joint models, businesses can modernize their SAP eco-systems, save costs, develop innovation within their organization, and drive substantial value and ROI. Hence, there are several reasons why running SAP BTP on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a beneficial choice for businesses.


What is SAP BTP and why you should care about it?

SAP Business Technology Platform, or SAP BTP, is a best-in-class innovation platform designed to cater specifically to SAP cloud applications. Combining critical capabilities like application development, data and analytics, automation, integration, and AI-driven technologies, SAP BTP provides a unified environment to accelerate digital transformation and improve business outcomes.

The platform offers a robust set of features that enable businesses to build, manage, and operate intelligent applications on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments. SAP BTP seamlessly integrates with other SAP solutions and cloud platforms, enabling customers to leverage existing investments while embracing the latest technological advancements.

One of the core value propositions of SAP BTP is its ability to help customers continually improve upon their customer relationships. According to research from IDC, organizations who leverage SAP BTP find that their customers stay with them for longer, thanks to the platform's ability to enable agile, integrated, and intelligent solutions. Businesses can, therefore, enjoy a long-lasting relationship with their customers, leading to increased customer loyalty, higher revenue, and business growth opportunities.

At the heart of SAP BTP are four primary pillars: database and data management, analytics, application development and integration, and intelligent technologies.

Here are some important benefits to consider while deploying it on AWS:


With AWS, businesses can benefit from easily scalable cloud infrastructure that can support the BTP requirements without any constraints. AWS provides a robust and secure cloud infrastructure that can support the complex workloads and data needs of SAP BTP users. With AWS, you can easily scale up or down your computing resources to match your workload demands, so you only pay for what you use. Additionally, AWS offers end-to-end security and compliance capabilities that can help organizations keep their data secure and meet strict regulatory and compliance requirements.

Seamless Integration and AWS Services

This integration enables organizations to leverage the latest technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT, to gain insights from data and extend their SAP and third-party solution landscapes to meet evolving business needs. Integrating SAP BTP with AWS services such as AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, Amazon RDS, and Amazon Redshift, allows businesses to create sophisticated, end-to-end solutions that can drive innovation and accelerate growth.

Improved Reliability and Availability

To ensure the highest level of reliability and availability, the SAP BTP recommends running on a multi-node cluster. AWS provides excellent redundancy measures to ensure service availability, including elastic load balancing and automatic instance recovery.

Cost Optimization

By running SAP BTP on AWS, businesses can enjoy several cost-saving benefits. For example, AWS has a pay-per-use pricing model which ensures businesses pay only for what they consume. Also, AWS provides businesses with the flexibility to shut off or reduce workloads during non-peak periods, thereby cutting down operational costs.

Enhanced Security

AWS has a robust security architecture based on the principle of shared responsibility. AWS offers a range of security measures and features, such as firewalls, SSL certificates, and endpoint protection, that help businesses secure their SAP workloads in the cloud.

Improved Performance

With AWS, businesses can utilize high-performing computing resources to enable faster processing of data and transactions. This ensures that SAP BTP applications and other workloads that require processing speed run at optimal levels.

SEIDOR Case Study

Recently, we've leveraged the robust capabilities of SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) to seamlessly integrate and extend the functionalities of S/4HANA Public Cloud for one of our esteemed clients. By harnessing the power of BTP, we facilitated the development of side-by-side extensions, custom applications, and integrations tailored to the client's specific needs. This approach allowed us to build agile and scalable solutions that complemented the core S/4HANA functionalities, empowering our client with enhanced capabilities and a more personalized user experience.

An illustrative example: we engineered a dynamic application within BTP that enables users to input a range of materials along with their respective quantities, instantly retrieving the sales price. How does it work? This application seamlessly integrates with an API that simulates the creation of an invoice, fetching the price details. This exemplifies the power and adaptability of BTP, showcasing that given an accessible API for desired functionality, we can craft virtually any tailored application within the S4 Public Cloud environment. This project underscores our capability to create custom, side-by-side applications that harness the rich functionalities of SAP's ecosystem, thereby empowering our clients with solutions aligned precisely with their operational requirements.

Through BTP, we bridge the gap between the existing SAP landscape and the client's unique requirements, fostering innovation and driving efficiency in their business processes

Running SAP BTP on AWS is an excellent choice for businesses that want to take advantage of a unified, business-centric, and open platform. With SEIDOR's expertise and support, businesses can accelerate their journey to the cloud and unlock the full potential of their SAP landscapes.
