We used it as an initial proof of concept in our research and development department as part of a Virtual Factory or Digital Twin concept. We wanted to simulate shopfloor data being sent via MQTT IoT and then being tracked or logged on the blockchain. This was part of a larger push to research different SAP Cloud Platform services.
  • Provides a simple visual layout of blockchain nodes.
  • Is accessible through the CP where all other services are accessed from.
  • We had difficulty accessing the service because it is hosted through the Cloud Foundry. We only had an SAP CP Neo environment to start off with.
  • The documentation was limited on the service when we started with development.
If blockchain needs to be researched or integrated with any other SAP services the SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain is the best option. The service is based on Hyperledger or Multichain which has the best support and developer focus. The SAP service being accessible through the CP dashboard and not having to work through Linux Command Prompt is an advantage.

Bringing Blockchain to the SAP Landscape

We began investigating blockchain use cases by experimenting with Hyperledger Fabric's open-source offering. We are a primarily SAP focused organization and thus SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain Service made perfect sense for us to continue our app development. We currently have 3 live networks running Hyperledger Fabric chain code. One of which is integrated with both SAP Service and open source offerings.
  • As with most other SAP Cloud offerings, the biggest selling point in my view is the easy integration of Blockchain technologies with other SAP services.
  • SAP has a very decent offering of Blockchain technologies such as Hyperledger Fabric, Multichain, and Quorum.
  • SAP's stated goal is for its Blockchain service to become technology agnostic meaning it will work regardless of support for the chain technology used. This is particularly important given the sheer number of Blockchain offerings that exist today.
  • SAP could further streamline the creation of nodes, networks, orderers, etc. Although their service is easier to use than open-source.
  • Having a stated goal of being technology agnostic, it would be great to see this implemented as I believe it will be key moving forward.
  • SAP could make it easier to deploy nodes and add connections for existing networks.
SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain Service is particularly well suited to scenarios that already involve an SAP landscape. It is the easiest way to integrate Blockchain with UI5 applications, ERP processes, Leonardo/Data Intelligence scenarios, and other SAP offerings. It also works to connect an existing, non-SAP blockchain network to an SAP landscape. It is not well suited to entirely non-SAP environments.
