SAP Cloud Platform is much more than a software tool for end users to easily program new applications. It also covers matters such as life-cycle management and integration and already comes with default templates which support numerous processes from product development to full-fledged business operations. When everything is in the cloud, people can focus on the important parts rather than spending their time on the less important ones. Secondly, SAP can deliver better, more consistent performance through reduced consumption of resources, greater scalability, and simplified administration.
Thirdly, Cloud is driven by real time experiences which cannot be replicated in a traditional setting, or even for companies with extensive and expensive IT budgets. SAP’s Cloud Platform provides a way for the company to build, deploy, and utilize its SAP solutions in real time, without the need to buy, manage, or maintain any computing infrastructure. This lowers costs, which in turn leads to better returns for enterprises. Customers get what they pay for with SAP Cloud, as a result.
SAP believes that the combination of the unique architecture of its products and the superior SAP Cloud Solutions will enable organizations to bring together their activities, their people, their data, and their technology. The result will be an intelligent enterprise solution that can run on a large number of devices and on the web. SAP has invested significantly in the research and development of its Cloud product to enable true integration between various aspects of an organization, including its business, its people, its data, and its applications. This is referred to as life-cycle management.
