We use this tool throughout the company. We consider this service very fundamental for our team of developers since we have been able to design and implement applications that are extremely important for our benefit. This service has been very productive, its price is very accessible to develop applications in the cloud and with the integrated tools, it offers we can work with high performance. In general, it has been a great experience to have acquired this platform.
  • It is a 100% productive tool for developing applications.
  • Its wide interface allows you to work with a high performance.
  • It provides real-time data information to improve business processes.
  • It is a service of high availability at all times and from mobile applications.
  • This service is the best investment a company can make, since you will get instant improvements.
  • Learning to use this service without proper training can be a challenge, as your system is large enough to confuse people.
  • I also believe that this service needs to be more flexible to adapt to the needs of its users.
  • If I talk about how it works, it's amazing how good it is, so in terms of functionality, I have no complaints.
SAP Cloud Platform is a very good tool to develop and implement applications with a very modern infrastructure, is a system of high availability at all times and its operation is extremely exemplary. The experiences gained by people working with this software is excellent, the reports it provides are very comprehensive, its interface is very broad and has an extraordinary design, in conclusion, this service is very comfortable and high performance.
Its integration with ERP systems is an excellent advantage of this system since we can have more complete control of production, logistics, inventory, and accounting. Other tools with which this platform is integrated that are of great help to us are Workflow, Open Connectors, and Remote Data Sync.

We use the SAP Cloud Platform "Portal" functionality with our European business. We also just started to use CPI for integration purposes.
  • Offers many functions under one umbrella.
  • It solved our problem of delivering a consistent look and feel for our customer/partner portal.
  • It can do better on availability.
  • If some advance notification can be provided on security patching plans, then we can be better prepared. Recently a security patch on the platform killed some function on our portal that used some older protocols - we couldn't test these as we didn't see the patch coming to avert this outage.
Well suited for cloud based apps. Not very well suited for hybrid deployments.
Yes, we are deploying interfaces using CPI to integrate our GEMS (Oracle HR product SaaS) with our GRC SAP on-premise systems. These are still early days but the results look promising. We're happy so far, and will soon start migrating from PI to CPI where suitable and also planning on API management.

We are using the SAP Cloud Platform only in our SAP department. We use the SAP Cloud Platform for developing SAP Fiori / SAPUI5 Apps with the focus on oil & gas companies. Mainly we optimize the processes of our oil & gas customers with tailored and easy-to-use software solutions.
  • Central platform
  • Easy-to-use
  • User friendly
  • Price model
  • ePaaS
  • Payment process
Developing SAP Fiori/SAPUI5 apps is working fine for us. But the connection between the SAP Cloud Platform and the SAP App Center is not clear enough for us. Also, the price model in the SAP Cloud Platform should be revised in the future for the SAP partners and customers.
The SAP Cloud Platform includes integration capabilities that we are using for our customers. We connect the cloud and on premises systems to transfer data between mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. That is a great benefit and improves the on site prcoesses of the customers to a new level.

We deliver SAP Cloud Platform solutions for different organizations and industry. Our goal is usually to improve the user experience of business users for greater adoption. For that we usually recommend our client to let us cover this topic through a web/digital agency. Another important aspect that we often encounter is to integrate different technologies/solution across a company, companies are more and more digitalizing their assets and integration need are growing.
  • Open, free courses and resources delivered.
  • Concept explained well and easy to configure.
  • Great integration with SAP on-prem solution.
  • Services Sizing Estimator missing.
  • More collaboration with customers and partners.
  • Faster SAP Cloud Platform incident resolution.
SAP Cloud Platform is well suited and best choice in case of extension of a SAP solution or in general when a Fiori style solution is delivered. But there is a huge gap between a SAPUI5 based solution and a solution that has to be based on another framework such as Angular or React.
Integration capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform enabled our customers in the replacement of on-premise infrastructures and middleware where pre-existing, reflecting not only on the reduction of overall IT infrastructure cost or Capex cost but in a scalable landscape that we don't foresee will need replacement and won't decrease its value over the time.

For the moment the usage is limited. It was almost a forced option to comply with Spanish SII legal requirement.
  • The focus here is about the cloud process integration, that is part of SAP Cloud Platform: the strengths are the pre-built scenarios for legal requirements.
  • For cloud process integration, cloud-to-cloud integration flows are convenient.
  • Typical plus of a cloud solution.
  • Application-oriented monitoring is needed for cloud process integration.
  • Self-monitoring and alert capabilities are needed for cloud process integration.
  • The user administration could be much more friendly.
Generally I'm not a fan of cloud solutions, since the cloud owner has too much power over solution costs, licensing, evolution, and maintenance. Cloud solutions should be used only for non mission critical applications.
I used if for a non mission critical application. I always would consider SAP Cloud Platform for non mission critical applications in the future.
Exactly, we enabled an on-premise to cloud solution. We did this to comply with Spanish SII legal requirement. We benefit from pre-built integration content, and the maintenance/update of the same included in license cost.

It is used by the organization for extension and to build new applications. Across the line of business we are using SAP Cloud Platform to build a custom application so that it can help us in our digital transformation journey. We are doing our development on both SAP Neo and SAP Cloud Foundry. Working very closely with SAP to build application on SAP Cloud Foundry with the best practices which can be implemented across the organization.
Also, we are building the guidelines for our developers on how to use SAP Cloud Foundry to build custom applications as per business requirements.
  • It is scalable.
  • Really helps to build custom application on SAP Neo and SAP Cloud Foundry.
  • Developers can leverage the language of their choice - UI5, JAVA, ABAP - and still deployment can be done across platforms.
  • It is flexible.
  • Improvement is required on CI/CD pipelines. Currently Azure DevOps cannot be used for it.
  • Integration between SAP Neo and SAP Cloud Foundry sometimes is not easy.
  • Production maintenance is not easy to plan.
It is very well suited to building custom applications. We are using it to build a custom application for our business. It is used also for an extension of on-premise systems. Integration is a challenge with SAP Cloud Platform. We use Jenkins, GitHub and Cloud Platform Transport Management Service for CI/CD scenarios. Azure DevOps cannot be used still for CI/CD/DevOps pipeline.

SAP Cloud Platform is used vaguely nowadays. We have various Cloud platforms to migrate our SAP Systems to host. This can reduce the AMC cost of the company and also manual efforts in monitoring and troubleshooting critical hardware issues. Earlier the scenario on-premise, we had SAN Switches for routing & separate EVA Storage to store the database. Now this can be omitted by Cloud Platform NFS Servers with less maintenance & less hazard. So this is used across the organisation and it addresses a lot of scenarios like infrastructure simplification and cost effectiveness.
  • Cost efficiency by saving on AMC annual charges.
  • Cloud Platform can provide ADS services so that customers does not have to have separate ADS servers to have the ADS service for their SAP Systems.
  • SAP Cloud Platform has a good security point and is flexible adjusting to new security requirements.
  • SAP Cloud Platform has room in terms of Docker and Kubernetes deployment.
  • SAP Cloud Platform can provide various combinations to various architecture definitions.
  • SAP Cloud Platform for various Cloud-enabled services.
SAP Cloud Platform is well suited for saving on data center costs and maintenance, improving for less human interaction and improvised technical solutions.
Yes, as it can leverage the easy connectivity. We can modify the integration as per customer needs.

As a consultant, I have a close connection with both tool implementation and user interaction. My recommendation for SAP Cloud Platform comes primarily from a Developer Perspective. It is way easier compared to the classical SAP on-premise platforms. Secondly, business users are way happier to work on the app-based UI which helps data review in terms of tables, charts, and dashboards. As a next-gen technology, there are more developments and more efficiency on the road-map which makes it a better choice.
  • Fiori based app development which results in the seamless coupling of data in the required format
  • SAP Cloud makes the data available wherever it is needed even on via mobile
  • Secure Data Integration scenarios that process, present and send the data as per our requirements
  • More integration methods
  • Data security
  • Better development tools
Well suited for the following:
  1. Time series based data integration between any system to any system, let it be SAP or Legacy
  2. Heavily used for data analytics using tables, charts, and dashboards
  3. Embedded machine learning and so helpful in predictive analyses capabilities
  4. Seamless connectivity with various Cloud Services such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure
  5. Data Availability made simple even over phones with the apps on Android and iOS platforms
As an active user of SAP Cloud Platform Integration for Data Services, I highly appreciate the functionalities that SAP has offered on SAP Cloud Platform. It can read and understand the data from any system's XML messages, Tables, Web Service Information, etc. Also, the way we can use the filters, joins, and assignments on the transformation were easy to configure and read.

SAP Cloud Platform has been used across the company as part of the digital transformation strategy across all our departments. We wanted to eliminate the manual processes in the organization & we had lots of legacy applications that we wanted to move to the cloud. Our platform of choice was SAP Cloud Platform & we wanted to make the applications mobile-enabled.
  • It can be easily integrated with on-premise systems.
  • Fiori with pre-built templates (for quick start).
  • Subscription-based usage.
  • Conversational AI is great (we can integrate with our apps for chat-bot).
  • Data analytics.
  • Scalability for B2C, like AWS, Azure.
  • Needs more marketing on the functionality.
  • Data management & analytics capabilities are limited.
Well suited for the CPG Industry and as a Sales Order Management Solution. Mobile application built on SAP Cloud Platform helped with real-time order taking & processing while checking the inventory.
We have benefitted from this. It has helped us in optimizing the sales cost & provided more visibility.

SAP Cloud Platform is used across the whole organization and it is focused mainly on integration, as SuccessFactors HCM Suite Talent Management integration with SAP ERP, HCM, SCPI Data Services (creating data flows, adding new transforms, mapping columns by dragging and dropping, by name, or using expressions, use of web services, integrating SAP IBP). It is also used for our global e-documents such as electronic invoice registration for Hungary, electronic invoicing for Italy, and in the future also Germany and Spain.
  • SAP IBP integration
  • Pre-packaged integration for SAP SF with HCM
  • Integration package for SAP Document Compliance and external systems
  • On SCPI data services platform, a search button on the projects tab would be helpful, especially when dealing with a lot of projects which are composed by multiple tasks and each of these tasks can have multiple data flows. A search button would help us to find faster a specific data flow or task, saving a lot of time (instead of opening each project -> task -> data flow which can be annoying).
  • Each integration package for eDocument has a tab called Documents, where we find a configuration guide. This guide could be improved with the mandatory steps needed for the cloud platform integration itself. For example, Electronic Invoicing for Italy requires extra steps comparing with Electronic Invoicing for Hungary, steps described only in SAP Note.
  • Integration package SuccessFactors HCM Suite Talent Management integration with SAP ERP HCM contains a deprecated artifact, Compensation to SuccessFactors HCM Suite Talent Management. It would be useful for customers to receive a notification for used artifacts which become deprecated via e-mail or better, as a notification on the SCPI itself.
SAP Cloud Platform is well suited for integration scenarios.
Our organization uses mainly integration scenarios via SAP Cloud Platform, as for example SAP HCM with SF, SAP IBP with S4/Hana, SAP IBP with Oracle Database, and E-Documents.

We provide data analytics as a service (DAaaS) for energy asset management. SAP Cloud Platform is central to all aspects of our product, from data hosting and management to data analysis and visualization. Using the cloud means that we are not limited by size or geography and we can offer our solution to any sized customer located anywhere in the world.
  • SAP Cloud Platform scales to any size.
  • SAP Cloud Platform can be deployed anywhere.
  • SAP Cloud Platform does not have to be managed in-house.
  • There are different versions with different features and incompatibilities to keep track of (e.g. Neo, CF).
  • There are always small problems to resolve with any new and growing technology.
SAP Cloud Platform is good for any distributed use-case requiring flexible resource allocation because resources can quickly be scaled up or down as needed. It is not appropriate for any case where an on-premise solution must be used (e.g. for legal or security reasons).
Yes, we integrate SAP Cloud Platform with a web-based application which is our product. So this integration capability is crucial to our business model.

SCP initial experience

SCP is used as extension to our SAP IBP platform. We are hosting there additional application that is supporting innovative business capabilities and enabling something that native IBP cannot provide. It provides support for the new supply chain concept / algorithm. The solution is being used in Europe and North America.
  • Provides Fiori that enables better user experience
  • It's easy to configure and install new applications
  • Can be easily scaled through adding additional resources / subscriptions
  • Integration of the platform is today close to real-time which limits use cases
  • Security is not easily integrated with other SAP authorizations and is not providing full configuration flexibility
  • SAP is not providing enough API's that could be consumed in SCP
SCP is appropriate for the cases where you can use time series and not real time data. Otherwise you may face integration challenges. At the same time SCP helps to keep your solution clean from custom code as the extension is delivered through the code that is managed independently. This helps with upgrades. One watch-out is that sometimes API's on the core solutions are stopping to work after SAP upgrades.
So far we used cloud to cloud integration. We are still planning to explore additional features in this area. Still we do not have near real time connections that would be great to test.

Several implementation streams - integration, extensions and bespoke applications.

Is the go-to platform when creating solutions that build on our SAP solutions. Many small scale projects currently using SCP, but major scale up expected in next two years.
  • Integration using CPI is so much more agile than previous solutions using PI. The main difference is that CPI is already accessible to the internet and so partners can be on boarded in a few minutes rather than the weeks to set up new network traversal.
  • Very simple to compose a new set of services for a project. This approach works well for agile projects.
  • For larger organizations, we miss automations that work at the cockpit level. There is too much manual effort required to create an environment, which could lead to inconsistencies.
  • With CPEA consumption model we see a lack of detailed reporting and control as a risk. Past experience has show how easy it is to over consume services.
  • There is a real lack of global solutions - services etc are available around the globe, but single services - distributed and highly available - are required for our bigger projects.
Services that need to consume our traditional on-premises SAP data are the first choice scenario for using SCP.

Solutions that are not touching existing SAP data or services are generally served elsewhere.
Integration scenarios for external partners now use HCI as the default solution. Avoiding the use of private IP addresses, private DNS, private certificates and complex firewall scenarios is now a very agile service at Nestlé.

We currently use SAP Cloud Platform as a development platform for our SAP UI5 applications. For app development, we use both the standard Web IDE as well as the Full Stack IDE We also have a few other Cloud Services such as the SAP Gamification Engine, SAP IoT, and a number of others on Cloud Foundry such as SAP Blockchain Service.
  • By using the Cloud Connector service, you can integrate SAP S/4 HANA or traditional ECC directly with UI5 applications for development, testing, and deployment purposes.
  • The Full Stack Web IDE streamlines the development of UI5 applications by offering code completion, GIT integration, and local debugging tools.
  • SAP Cloud Platform is very easy to manage from a user perspective, with permissions, authorizations, and access handled in one central service.
  • While both are good offerings, the distinction between Neo Cloud Platform and Cloud Foundry is a bit tedious. Often similar services are offered on each but with different features or roadmaps.
  • SAP recently announced the third IDE for Cloud Platform based on Eclipse. It would be nice to have full clarification as to the purpose of each, and if there is overlap perhaps to discontinue one.
If your company is considering developing SAP UI5 applications then SAP Cloud Platform is a must. Bringing SAP to the mobile world is a key driver for the adoption of Cloud Platform, and there really is no alternative. Cloud Platform has been around for a number of years and is quite robust and mature as a service.
We have used Cloud Platform Cloud Connectors to connect directly with our clients' landscapes. This allows us to develop custom UI5 applications directly in their environment for their specific use cases. We've also been able to roll-out our products into our customers' environment with the same connector. As for integration, Cloud Platform is very simple to integrate with any number of cloud services on offer from SAP and third-parties.

SCP is being used as the External Vendor Portal in Loblaw. I used to manage the vendor on-boarding process and vendor promotion process. The vendor gets their own user administration capabilities. Apart from that, WebIDE service is also used for Fiori development. BUILD prototyping service is used for prototyping to fine-tune the business requirements. Business feedback is positive.
  • Scalability.
  • Usability.
  • Support.
  • Innovation.
  • Cost Reduction.
  • Lack of documentation.
  • Limited number of authorization roles.
  • Known constraints for OdataService Provisioning Service.
  • Do not have the containerization functionalities.
  • Do not have the auto-scale up or down capabilities
It is good for Fiori development via WebIDE service. It is no longer required to upgrade the Eclipse anymore. It is also good for the prototyping via BUILD service. Both of these services can accelerate the deployment time and provide better user experience to a business. However, since the Odata Provisioning service lacks the functionalities and not support the latest ODataService version. It is required to think twice before heading down to this direction.
We integrated SCP and the backend systems via the OdataService and gateway. The destination for all the backend systems are well defined in the SAP Cloud Platform. RFC calls are being used to communicate with the backend system. In terms of other integration opportunities like datahub and extension factory, it is required to have further investigation.

SAP Cloud Platform provides a great, out of the box solution that covers our needs from end to end - from design to building and deployment with hassle-free Integrations. It has lots of standard base tools that meet our business requirements and that are easy to configure and deploy.
  • It is well for all electronic invoicing interfaces.
  • It has lots of built-in Interfaces that are useful for business requirements like e-invoicing, order, etc.
  • Reprocessing error messages.
  • Moving maps from system to system.
  • Improve the system download.
  • Would be nice to have alert notifications for workflow messaging.
We use SAP Cloud Platform for all cloud-to-cloud and on-premise applications. It provides an out of the box solution to connect systems.
We have implemented SAP Cloud Platform to integrate SAP Ariba on-premise to Ariba on cloud processing. It's easy to build the mapping as SAP has given a lot of standard solution/mapping as per business needs.

This year in my new company, we recently acquired SCP. In the past years, the organization used Oracle, and now we are currently moving into all SAP products, including SAP 4HANA, GRC 4S 4HANA, Solution Manager, and SAP Cloud Platform. One issue we have with SAP Cloud Platform - When we have to start an onboarding project we have to set up the whole landscape on the SAP Cloud, which means we need an implementation organization. We are moving to SAP because it's a real world-class solution.
  • Mobile services from SCP are incredibly helpful for developers. The SDKs work really well with SAP Mobile services and can help us get mobile products to market within a month or less.
  • SAP WebIDE makes developing on Fiori much faster. It's a complex tool, but there are some accelerators like SAP Build that help prototyping and the libraries and templates SAP WebIDE is very useful.
  • We know that SaaS solutions like this are the way of the future of the "industry", and SAP has the best technology but is also the most expensive. There are time savings with SAP, but it doesn't offset the cost.
  • There are very few partners in LATAM for implementation, which can make the on-boarding process slow or difficult.
SAP solutions are excellent, which gives this a good rating in my book. However, it is very expensive, which takes the score down a bit.

Extending and integrating SAP

Score 8 out of 10

We use the SAP Cloud Platform to integratie and extend SAP’s Cloud ERP offerings: SAP Business ByDesign and more recently, SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Through various resources and tools in the SAP Cloud Platform we are able to rapidly develop custom user interfaces while retaining consistency in the look, and behavior of our apps and effectively blurring the lines between SAP Native applications. This has yielded effective results in the areas of user adoption and acceptance and fewer support inquiries on how things work.
  • Extensive documentation is readily available
  • Free courses and tutorials available online
  • Native gateway into SAP applications
  • Ease of use for tools outside the Neo environment is sorely lacking at the moment.
  • Standard service offerings vs. add-ons charged separately are not entirely clear at the moment.
  • Extension and integration functions are still treated separately when the lines between these functions are increasingly blurred.
The SAP Cloud Platform is the best solution for extending an existing SAP cloud, and to a lesser extent on-premise solution. It is also an excellent platform for integrating best-of-breed solutions into the SAP ecosystem.

If the core ERP however is not SAP, then the price of the Cloud Platform can be quite steep especially for commoditized services offered by other cloud providers and hyperscalers in the market.
Customers seem less reluctant to slowly move to the cloud when an option for a hybrid solution is presented. Although there are legitimate use cases for a hybrid solution, most customers know that moving to the cloud is the long-term goal and they perceive the hybrid scenario as transitional. Having tools that bring on-premise systems closer to the cloud are a necessary feature/option for many customers who would otherwise be on-the-fence.

To create new applications or expand existing applications in a secure cloud computing environment managed by SAP. To integrate data and business processes
  • Offers seamless integration of existing solutions and hybrid system landscapes
  • Offers rapid deployment of preconfigured applications and services
  • Offers a consistent user experience
  • Digital assistant for workflows
  • Integration with SAP Intelligent RPA
  • Adaptive cards integration for Microsoft Office 365
I recommend SAP Cloud Platform because it powers applications that deliver real-time insights to drive more effective and timely decision-making. It dramatically accelerates analytics, business processes, sentiment data processing, and predictive capabilities to run your business in real-time.
For us, the main integration capability is to integrate various applications and data sources from SAP and non-SAP, on-premises as well as in the cloud. Also, we take advantage of the prepackaged integration content.

It is used for developing, as a starting point, a vendor/sales platform that will replace and improve on our current one that was previously implemented on SAP Portal (now an obsolete technology). It is critical for our business as the purchase and shipping of the new apparel collection every season defines how well the sales period will be, and SAP Cloud Platform enables this.
  • Renewed technology for development (not obsolete)
  • Provides new way of interacting and presenting the data to our users
  • Cloud component
  • Licensing is confusing
  • Need more SAP partners available
  • I would like it if other types of programming (other than HTML, Java) were available to work with in SCP. I would prefer something more "high level" or easier to use and not so technical.
For us, it is well suited for any external platform for our users, who are not really experienced with typical SAP front end. In the future, we may be able to use it more after it has been tested and proved in the current context and once we migrate to S/4 as the development platform to cover any missing functionalities or extensions.

We are using SAP Cloud Platform for most of our applications, like websites and building applications, and publishing them in the cloud. We feel the speed and efficiency. We also recommended it for most of the companies we work with.
