Frequently asked questions

LCNC is a software development approach that requires little to no coding to build and extend business applications. Instead of using complex programming languages, developers can leverage visual programming, drag-and-drop capabilities, and sophisticated business logic on a low-code development platform.​

​LCNC helps developers of all skill levels build and deliver applications quickly. It increases productivity by reducing time-intensive manual coding and empowers more people to contribute to development initiatives and the creation of value at scale.

Both low-code and no-code capabilities allow users to build business applications without needing deep programming knowledge and help ease innovation efforts for stretched IT departments.

​Low code allows developers to operate efficiently with a template-based user interface environment, application programming models, and visual data modelling as found in SAP Business Application Studio. ​

No code has a lower barrier to entry. It leverages an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, customisable components, and predefined formula functions as found in the SAP AppGyver development environment.

LCNC solutions from SAP accelerate and scale the delivery of new applications, enhance existing ones, and automate complex tasks.
