ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) is a programming language primarily used to develop applications for the SAP environment. In the SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP is a service that enables developers to create and run ABAP applications in a cloud environment. This service provides a development and runtime environment fully integrated with other SAP Cloud Platform services, including data management, security, and integration services. With ABAP in the SAP Cloud Platform, developers can build, test, and deploy new applications, or modernize existing ones, using the latest technologies and tools. This enables organizations to extend their existing SAP landscapes to the cloud, and benefit from the agility, scalability, and innovation of the cloud.
