Overall Satisfaction with SAP Cloud Platform

Sap Cloud Platform helps us to decouple processes and functionalities from the backend. Furthermore, it is a door opener to connect in a secure way and manner customers and suppliers via a mobile experience to our backend. In addition, we can scale easily and react to changes in the market.
  • Great integration of saas/3rd party to the backend
  • Mobile app development capabilities with the SDK
  • Support of multiple launchpads in one subaccount
  • Simple service activation via CPEA contract
  • Connect securely and fast multiple backends to expose information to externals
  • Not all services are available on all hyperscalers
  • Marketing of cloud platforms is difficult to understand for ABAP guys and users without knowing anything about cloud as such.
  • Fast evolving technologies, hard to keep pace
  • Cost/time savings for end-users to merge multiple transactions in one straight forward app
  • New business opportunities which could have not be leveraged without the SCP
  • Enabler for s/4: carving out custom code to optimize performance
Highly benefitting from integration capabilities like the eDoc framework(B2G) and connecting all SaaS/3rd party solutions in an orchestrated way to the backend. Reduction of landscape complexity and ensuring stable operations of the backend. Via API Mgmt, one single instance to monitor and keep track of issues/alerts.
By connecting IoT sensors to machines, a lot of records are collected, sent centrally to the SCP, via Leonardo and evaluated to provide predictive maintenance insights when a next potential downtime would happen. By connecting the analytics cloud the digital boardroom offers great dashboard capabilities.
Idle times could be reduced as well.
No other alternatives were evaluated as a company like us which is using SAP ERP as a core by running multiple productive SAP systems like ERP, CRM, GTS, MDG, etc. It was clear to use SAP Cloud Platform services as SAP can connect and integrate best with SAP backend systems.
It offers great prepackaged content and APIs directly to consumers to get directly started. The billing process is transparent and easy to understand. Strengths are connecting externals to consume information from backend systems via a securely orchestrated cloud connector. A predictive cost calculating including a last best estimate update would be helpful.
