SAP is introducing SAP Cloud Platform innovations that will allow customers to connect their demand chain to their supply chain, meet new privacy and security regulations, and provide an exclusive cloud environment for their critical applications.

To simplify and provide end-to-end connections between business processes and applications, SAP announced the general availability of the artificial intelligence and machine learning–based integration content advisor for SAP Cloud Platform, new scenarios for the Cloud Integration Automation service, and the SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors service.

SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors add to the robust SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite by allowing customers to easily connect SAP business processes with more than 150 non-SAP application solutions.

The business partner service on SAP Cloud Platform will deliver purpose-built master data services that access, manage, enrich and orchestrate enterprise business applications, including SAP S/4HANA and SAP’s line-of-business (LoB) solutions. The master data services can be shared and reused for any LoB-specific intelligent business processes.
