The Intelligent Enterprise

As an intelligent enterprise, you can keep your workforce engaged and increase organizational agility. You can deliver the products and services your customers need and deliver personal, trusted, and connected customer experiences. You can control every source and category of spend. You can increase efficiency and gain insight to guide your business. And you can make decisions confidently and drive continuous innovation.

The figure The Intelligent Enterprise provides an overview of the Intelligent Enterprise.

Key dimensions of intelligent enterprises include:

  • Assisted and automated business process execution.
  • Actionable business insights.
  • Innovative business models and practises.
  • Collaborative networks.
  • Experience management.

The intelligent enterprise comprises of:

Business Network
The SAP Business Network will help you to digitalize cross-company business processes. The network builds on current procurement, travel, and contingent workforce solutions to help intelligent enterprises work together to create flexible value chains.
Experience Management
Understanding what people want, and how they feel is critical to making the right decisions. Experience management solutions give insight on the sentiments and feelings of customers, employees, and other business stakeholders.
Intelligent Suite
SAP offers an integrated suite of applications that support your end-to-end business processes. The suite helps manage every part of your organization – employees, customers, products, spend, finance, and IT. With embedded analytics, we provide a 360-degree view of your business.
Industry Cloud
SAP’s industry cloud will enable you to discover and deploy vertical solutions from SAP and partners. These help you to apply leading-edge industry best practices and extend your current business processes.
Sustainability Management
Being best-run means running sustainably. SAP solutions for sustainability will help customers understand and manage their impact on people and the environment.
SAP Business Technology Platform
The platform provides data management and analytics, supports application development and integration, and allows you to use intelligent technologies – such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things – to drive innovation.

SAP Business Technology Platform

SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) brings together intelligent enterprise applications with database and data management, analytics, integration and extension capabilities into one platform for both cloud and hybrid environments, including hundreds of pre-built integrations for SAP and third-party applications.

The figure SAP Business Technology Platform provides an overview of the four key areas and the corresponding solutions for each area.

SAP BTP solution areas are:

Database and Data Management
Capture, manage, and govern your data to drive better business outcomes.
Analytics
Analyze all your data to accelerate insights and transform the data you have into the answers you need.
Application Development and Integration
Integrate and extend applications - build new ways to access and interact with your data.
Intelligent Technologies
Data is the fuel propelling intelligent technologies forward - optimizing processes, and igniting innovation.

SAP BTP will be the unified, business-centric and open data and development platform for the entire SAP ecosystem. With unrivaled development efficiency, it will empower SAP developers, customers and partners alike to integrate, create value from data and extend in SAP landscapes. To achieve this, we bring our existing technology products (for example: SAP HANA, SAP Integration Suite, or SAP Analytics Cloud) together with new capabilities (for example: low-code/no code, marketplace) in one place for consumption. All built on a stable multi-cloud, multi-runtime foundation.
