There are lots of services available and you can use them for several use cases. In this slide you see a potential use for some services.

The example scenario:

Your developers have the task to develop a SAPUI5 application with CAP. This application should be hosted on the SAP BTP.

The developers decide to use the SAP Business Application Studio as IDE. For the Continuous Integration and Delivery pipeline they use the Continuous Integration & Delivery service of SAP BTP.

The application gets deployed inside the Cloud Foundry Environment of the SAP BTP.

The developers use the SAP HANA Cloud to store data of the application. (Database as a service).

While you want the operation and productive use of the application to ensure security through authorization management, you want to write logs and handle load automatically.

For the authorization your developers use the Authorization and Trust Management service. For the logs they can connect the application to the Application Logging Service.

For handling loads dynamically your developers can create an instance of the Application Autoscaler, configure it with scaling rules, and bind it to the application.

In addition to the use case from this scenario there are lots of more potential use cases and even lots of more services which could be used.

As you already know you can find all services inside of the SAP Discovery Center.
