About SAP AI Core and SAP AI Launchpad

SAP AI Core and SAP AI Launchpad are services which you can link to your BTP global account. SAP AI Core offers a powerful AI runtime which is natively integrated with SAP AI Launchpad. The launchpad offers an easy-to-use interface to manage AI workflow administration, processes, and tasks.

How Does Free Tier Work?

Both services are available as either free tier or standard (paid) plans. If you choose free tier plans, you can try out SAP AI Core and SAP AI Launchpad for free.

After testing and evaluation, you can easily upgrade free tier to paid plans without losing your data or work. Note that creating an instance using a paid plan will incur costs.

Boosters are available for both services to help you get started. Boosters are a set of guided interactive steps that enable you to select, configure, and consume services on SAP BTP. You can use boosters for both free tier and paid plans. In this tutorial, we’ll use the boosters to set you up with free tier plans.

For more information, see Free Tier (SAP AI Core) and Free Tier (SAP AI Launchpad).
