Hi we’re SAP Blockchain!
Another addition to this is SAP HANA Blockchain, which connects any SAP HANA database to the most popular enterprise blockchain platforms. This provides very interesting capabilities that were previously unheard of in the blockchain ecosystem. This blog is the first in a series of blogs on SAP HANA Blockchain. It introduces the technical concept and the different components, as well as the upcoming beta program.
Neither SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain nor SAP HANA are a blockchain platform like Bitcoin, Ethereum or Hyperledger Fabric. Blockchain is a concept based on collaboration and interoperability. SAPs strategy is not to establish yet another platform and create an SAP-centric blockchain ecosystem, but to integrate into existing enterprise blockchain platforms. SCP Blockchain currently supports Hyperledger fabric (SAP being a premier member of the Linux Foundations Hyperledger project), MultiChain and Quorum. With its modular approach, other blockchain platforms can be added easily in the future.
SAP’s blockchain initiative is more commonly known as a blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) which provides the easiest, lowest-risk gateway to experimenting with distributed ledger technology in the cloud. This eliminates the need for a large upfront capital investment and fast-track blockchain implementation across your business. Features include:
- Cloud deployment
- Prototype, test, and build blockchain applications and smart contracts
- Develop blockchain extensions for existing applications
- Use open standards to create consortium and private blockchain networks
Driving the continued exploration of blockchain and its opportunities through collaboration with other tech, industry, and infrastructure players.
Slogan / Motto
Simplify complex multi-party processes and create trust among participants – with blockchain and distributed ledger solutions from SAP.
