Everyone can be a developer with SAP
SAP® AppGyver®, SAP Business Application Studio strengthen low-code/no-code app development options
SAP launches a unified low-code/no-code development experience on SAP® Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP). With the SAP AppGyver® development environment and SAP Business Application Studio, companies can build new applications, extend existing ones, or automate complex tasks without adding workloads to stretched IT departments.
Citizen and professional developers alike can use powerful no-code development with SAP AppGyver to deliver sophisticated enterprise-scale applications for the Web and mobile apps using an intuitive drag-and-drop user interface. The extensive component library and unlimited logic functions let even novice developers create pixel-perfect apps and extensions without needing to write or understand code.
SAP AppGyver is now generally available. More than 100,000 developers already use the tool to extend solutions such as SAP Sales Cloud with native SAP APIs.
SAP also adds a new low-code approach to SAP Business Application Studio to increase professional developers’ productivity. Its visual programing environment means users can simplify application modelling and dive deeper into code when needed.
New no-code process automation capabilities on SAP BTP empower citizen and professional developers
SAP launches the SAP Process Automation solution, a new offering for no-code process automation on SAP BTP that helps business users build new processes and lift workloads from IT departments. SAP Process Automation offers a simple drag-and-drop user interface so even citizen developers can take advantage of end-to-end automation capabilities, which draw on workflow management and embedded robotic process automation (RPA) functionality. It is available as a preview for a select number of customers.
SAP Process Automation includes rich libraries of prebuilt process packages and bots designed specifically to work with SAP applications, such as SAP Ariba® solutions and SAP S/4HANA®, so users can deliver automation faster.
SAP also adds AI-based enhancements to existing automation applications:
- The SAP Workflow Management service’s advanced machine learning capabilities give users recommended approvals. Workflows can be configured, trained, and automated without IT support.
- SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (SAP Intelligent RPA) services now include extended artificial intelligence capabilities. Developers can use them to retrieve contextual business data from unstructured documents, as well as to perform intelligent routing and classification.
