Cloud Connector Overview

SAP Cloud Connector serves as the link between SAP Business Technology Platform and existing on-premise systems. It combines an easy setup with a clear configuration of the systems that are exposed to SAP Business Technology Platform.

SAP Cloud Connector runs as on-premise agent in a secured network and acts as a reverse invoke proxy between the on-premise network and SAP Business Technology Platform. Due to its reverse invoke support, you don't need to configure the on-premise firewall to allow external access from the cloud to internal systems.

A single Cloud Connector supports connectivity with multiple back-end SAP systems.

The following video provides an overview of SAP Cloud Connector.
