What is SAP BTP?

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) is a comprehensive platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution, an innovation platform optimized for SAP applications in the cloud, that efficiently combines data and analytics, artificial intelligence, application development, automation and integration in a single, unified environment.

SAP BTP enables business developers and key users to build various enterprise applications with low-code or no-coding tools such as SAP Build Apps and SAP Build Workzone.

The tool with a graphical interface enables easy creation and modification of processes, as well as robotic automation of repetitive processes.
