Introducing SAP Build
LCNC platforms not only aim to accelerate the development by professional developers, but they also aim to enable experienced business users with domain knowledge to get a suite of tools to build applications and automate their repetitive tasks without a technical background and without the need to engage the IT department. With these capabilities, business users become citizen developers.
Citizen development is a disruptive solution to address the gap in technical expertise, especially that of experienced professional developers, that exists today. It offers a great way to foster a culture of innovation, which enables citizen developers and business units to fulfill their individual needs without waiting for the solution from the IT department. As a result, this approach could lead to a win-win situation for IT and the business department.
It is these non-technical business users who can now build process automation and applications that help address the requirements of their everyday work while, at the same time, reducing the risks of human errors and offering better customer experiences.
