SAP BTP is the ultimate foundation for intelligent enterprises across different phases of build, extend and integrate. SAP BTP Enterprise Agreement is the new consumption-based model offers customers support innovation and increase adoption through flexibility and modernization of services. It’s an evolution of the existing Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement(CPEA) commercial model.

What is SAP BTP Enterprise Agreement?

SAP BTP Enterprise Agreement is the new true commercial model offered by SAP which streamlines the range of available services allowing addition of new SAP BTP services like SAP Analytics Cloud (BI + Planning) to the consumption-based model. Billing for the services included in SAP BTPEA are based on usage. Similar to CPEA commercial model, a prepaid investment is made to buy cloud credits and based on usage of services the corresponding total monthly cost is deducted from the cloud credits balance.

Key Benefits

Value Optimization: Customers can maximize their investment in innovation by only paying for the services they use. This ensures a strong return on investment and prevents unnecessary spending.

Flexibility: BTPEA enables customers to explore new use cases without the limitations of fixed licenses. They can choose exactly the services they need, fostering experimentation and rapid development.

Modernization: The cloud-native nature of BTPEA provides agility and adaptability, allowing businesses to evolve and respond to changing market conditions.

Simplicity: A single SKU eliminates the need for complex bill of materials (BoM) definitions, streamlining the process and simplifying management.

Access: BTPEA grants access to all BTP services, including future innovations. This ensures customers stay ahead of the curve and have access to the latest technologies.

Free Tier: The availability of free-tier services provides a low-barrier entry point for exploration and experimentation, making BTP accessible to all.

The consumption model allows access to all eligible available services with improved flexibility and provides agility to adapt to changes throughout the enterprise digital transformation. It also includes new deprecation policy ensuring long-term support for key strategic services.
