SAP has announced a comprehensive series of generative AI capabilities and advancements aimed at empowering developers of all skill levels to supercharge their businesses in the age of AI at its 2023 SAP TechEd event.
“Today’s dynamic technology and business landscape means every developer needs to be an AI developer," commented Juergen Mueller, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Executive Board of SAP SE. “The innovations we’re launching at SAP TechEd, from AI-infused pro-code tools to a one-stop shop to create generative AI extensions and applications on SAP Business Technology Platform, support the developers at the heart of the AI revolution and provide them with resources they need to transform the way businesses run.”
Collaboration key to deriving value from generative AI
As organisations aim to derive business value from generative AI, effective collaboration between professional and citizen developers is essential. At TechEd, SAP is launching the SAP Build Code solutions, which offer AI-powered productivity tools for developers. SAP Build Code also draws on the power of SAP’s new generative AI copilot Joule to further boost productivity.
AI is of course only as strong as the data it is built on. SAP is continuing to innovate in the data space with HANA Cloud – a modern database as a service (DBaaS) powering the next generation of intelligent data applications and analytics across all enterprise data – by adding new vector database features to its multimodel offerings at no additional cost.
“The era of AI is, in many ways, the era of data – and this is where SAP has long played a dominant role,” comments Monika Schaller, Chief Communications Officer at SAP. “Hundreds of thousands of customers around the world trust us with their most mission-critical data, and for more than 50 years we’ve earned and built upon that trust.”
Meanwhile SAP says that AI Foundation on SAP BTP, a new one-stop shop for developers to create AI- and generative AI-powered extensions and applications on SAP BTP, will further help increase developers’ impact and efficiency. AI Foundation includes everything developers need to start creating business-ready AI tools on SAP BTP – from ready-to-use AI services and access to the top large language models to vector database capabilities and AI runtime and lifecycle management.
Addressing the technology skills gap
The rapid pace of technological innovation has driven up global demand for skilled developers. As part of a commitment to upskill two million professionals by 2025 and complement free AI learning content already available, SAP has launched new role-based certification and free learning resources for back-end developers using the ABAP Cloud development model. The two new learning resources are designed for agile and cloud-compliant business transformation, providing developers with skills to build cloud-ready extensions that are aligned with SAP’s clean core strategy.
SAP has also joined the Stanford HAI (Institute for Human-Centred AI) Corporate Affiliate Program. Researchers and engineers at SAP will work with the Stanford academic community, including research faculty and students, on the intersection of generative AI and business.
