Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business Technology Platform

It is mainly used to develop small prototypes of cloud-based solutions which extends on-premise functionalities. So SAP Business Technology Platform apps consume on-premise features, join them together with BTP services, and expose all to a dedicated user group like service technicians.
  • Provides stable & reliable working environment
  • Evolve constantly
  • Leverages trending open source and up to date technologies
  • Find a "simple enough" GUI design to structure the different kind of content
  • Find a consistent model for (trial)accounts/productive environments
  • Separation of public available and after-login only content
  • Short term development costs reduced due to leveraging "cheap" dev staff
  • Long term maintenance costs increased due to creating complex landscapes
  • Rapid prototyping can be scaled perfectly to several teams
As SAP Business Technology Platform seems still a vendor's tray, this harms the usability because it is hard to categorize and harmonize all the content.
  • Product Features
  • Prior Experience with the Product
Ready-to-use, good productivity to get quick results.
SAP Business Technology Platform tries to provide a one-stop solution for particular user groups.

Fits perfectly for developers without any "traditional" SAP knowledge to develop simple and encapsulated stand-alone solutions which should be available on the public internet. If companies already use a lot of SAP solutions (S/4, Ariba, etc.) that provide a lot of extensibility possibilities and already have a high complexity also in terms of integration, it is not a good idea to try to develop their own things from scratch in this context. If you use SAP products, you REALLY SHOULD leverage the options of each product to extend them.
