SAP Business Technology Platform offers hundred of business services coupled with several runtime environments, namely SAP Cloud Foundry, ABAP Steampunk, and SAP BTP, Kyma runtime. There are many business services which can be used across multiple runtimes and others that may be tied to a specific runtime environment at a time.

This is where SAP BTP, Kyma runtime comes to the rescue.
