Here we do NOT have BTP. You are developing in the S/4 system. Here for e.g customizing we offer a simple configuration to give you the possibility to maintain own cust tables. Looks like a successor of SM30.
Looks like lot of challenges between on-prem and cloud version. Any idea how long it took to migrate/re-implement programs?
S/4HANA = There are Custom Code Migration Tools to Migrate to S/4 HANA Cloud - Check the Cloud readiness Check in ATC. There is a note with a check variant to calculate the deviation to be cloud ready for custom code. At 22:00 CET there is a session with Thomas Fiedler and Olga. Don't miss it.
