SAP Business Technology Platform

Custom Development on SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) refers to the process of creating tailor-made applications, extensions, and solutions to meet specific business requirements and unique use cases. SAP BTP provides a comprehensive set of services, tools, and technologies that enable developers to build, integrate, and extend applications using cloud-based resources, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and more. Custom Development allows businesses to innovate and differentiate themselves by addressing their specific needs and delivering personalized experiences to users and customers.

Here are the key aspects of Custom Development on SAP Business Technology Platform:
