The Platform 

SAP is a recognized leader in the cloud space with its Business Technology Platform (BTP) running solutions for the largest companies across the world. The Cloud Foundry environment within BTP enables customers to develop new business applications and services, supporting multiple runtimes, programming languages, libraries, and services.
Application developers can use a multitude of buildpacks, including community innovations for Java, Node.js and Python to leverage the technology which suits their scenario and their existing skillset best.
The buildpacks provide framework and runtime support for applications. They typically examine application’s source code and configuration to determine what dependencies to download and how to configure the application to communicate with bound services. When an application is pushed, Cloud Foundry automatically detects an appropriate buildpack for it and uses the buildpack to compile or prepare the application for launch.
