This IDC Market Perspective analyzes SAP's Business Transformation Platform strategy and capabilities and is based on discussions between IDC analysts, SAP executives, and customers at SAP's TechEd event in Barcelona in October 2019.
"With its new Business Technology Platform, SAP has dramatically loosened its grip on the technologies that customers and partners can use to integrate and extend its applications," said Neil Ward-Dutton, VP of AI and Intelligent Process Automation Practices, IDC Europe. "This brings benefits for SAP, but it will also increasingly mean SAP must embrace co-opetition."
