PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES

The SAP Cloud Platform (SAP CP) is a platform-as-a-service infrastructure built to offer unique capabilities to develop and streamline applications for public and industry clouds.

As a core component, the service is used to manage all internal as well as customer facing databases. Besides providing databases in SAP owned data centers, we are currently extending the reach of the service to also operate on public cloud infrastructures like AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
