SAP Cloud Platform High-performance platform for digital transformation

Digital transformation is in full swing. It includes the automation of (business) processes, the beneficial use of digital data as a new production factor, the optimal networking within your own supply chain as well as the creation of a digital customer access to your own company. Companies have to face the change in order to be able to successfully operate on the market in the future. Business leaders and managers have to develop a digital strategy tailored to their company.


IT plays an important part in the implementation of this strategy new technologies pave the way for digital change. The SAP Cloud Platform (SCP) by SAP (formerly HANA Cloud Platform – HCP) provides a basis for high-performance applications for supporting companies in digital transformation and for extending the software used in your company on a local platform in a convenient and agile way.

Development and use of innovative and individual applications with the SAP Cloud Platform

The SCP platform enables you to develop cloud applications and solutions and to use them as such. It can also be used when it comes to the individual and agile extension of SAP Business Suite processes or processes of other SAP applications such as SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer or SAP SuccessFactors.


On the SAP Cloud Platform, nearly all types of applications can be developed and operated. In doing so, the SCP uses the high-performance HANA in-memory database. The SCP applications can be integrated seamlessly into SAP applications. Furthermore, it is based on open standards to even enable a networking with non-SAP applications.
