Before we dive into SAP BTP Job Scheduler and its intricacies, let’s start by explaining why we—a workload automation platform—are talking about another job scheduler.
The heart of Redwood is workload automation—known in the SAP world as job scheduling. In fact, RunMyJobs by Redwood is SAP’s #1 recommended job scheduler with the most SAP certifications, including S/4HANA and RISE with SAP. Our relationship with SAP runs deep, spanning over two decades.

Now, let’s talk about SAP BTP Job Scheduler, how this tool works and how to enhance functionality using RunMyJobs.
What is the SAP BTP Job Scheduler?
SAP BTP (Business Technology Platform) Job Scheduler is a pivotal functionality in the SAP cloud platform. It empowers users to manage and schedule jobs that automate repetitive tasks in SAP applications. This ensures better orchestration of business processes and allows for real-time management and optimization, improving efficiency of business processes in the SAP BTP environment. While SAP BTP includes various components and services for application development, database and data management, analytics, and more, it doesn’t inherently function as a standalone job scheduler.
Available features in SAP BTP Job Scheduler
Features and functionality of SAP BTP are ever-evolving, including:
Lets create jobs and run them at specific times or intervals.
Users can automate various tasks and workflows within their cloud applications.
Job Monitoring and Management

Seamlessly integrate with other services and components within the SAP BTP ecosystem.
Why consider the SAP BTP Job Scheduler
Imagine a scenario where you could automate specific workflows in your SAP system, say running a report, updating a database or triggering a particular functionality. Would that save time and make your team more efficient? That’s exactly what the SAP BTP Job Scheduler enables. With its web-based user interface and SaaS capabilities, the scheduler offers a robust way to manage jobs and ensure smooth operations.
However, here’s the catch: more than merely automating individual tasks within SAP is required. To bring your business processes into the future, it’s essential to consider your entire tech stack, including your non-SAP applications.
