SAP S/4HANA has become de-facto ERP standard with now more than 5,800 customers worldwide. It accompanies organizations across the world in their digital transformation journey that requires them to adopt best-in-class software with high agility. This is further extended by SAP Cloud Platform that gives developers the power to build and run high-quality applications that conform to the highest order of performance, security and reliability tests.
This is where the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK comes in. Making the application development experience delightful, the SDK provides you out-of-the-box capabilities, such as an abstraction of the underlying cloud platform implementation (SCP Classic, Cloud Foundry), fault-tolerance, cache management, and tutorials and project templates.
The beta version of SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK was released on May 15, 2017. You can find more information about the SDK and its components on the product page on sap.com. During the beta phase, you can get in touch with us via the registration form on the product page to get an access to the SDK materials. General availability of the SDK is planned for September 2017.
