The low-code platform SAP Build enables citizen developers to visually compose and automate applications, processes, and business pages to improve their day-to-day tasks and processes.
As explained in the previous lesson, citizen development is becoming increasingly important for organizations in driving digital transformation. Using LCNC platforms, citizen developers can now contribute to digital transformation by creating the necessary applications or forms to capture data and automate processes. For example, a citizen developer can easily digitalize and automate a repetitive task, for example, by recording the steps on their screen and automating them with Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This not only unleashes business expertise, it also saves time, so that citizen developers can focus on more important tasks.
Building low-code solutions with SAP Build is similar to crafting a slide deck for an upcoming presentation. By starting on a blank white canvas, templates and pre-coded components can be dragged into the canvas to create applications. The same is valid for process automation. With more than 1300 pre-built components available and embedded Artificial Intelligence (AI), automating processes has never been easier.
The visual creation of applications and business pages and the automation of processes without code are among the many added values offered by SAP Build. Business data and processes from SAP and non-SAP systems can be integrated using hundreds of pre-built connectors and business content. This enables the creation of side-by-side extensions by improving seamless integration of external systems. In addition, secure collaboration across teams and projects is ensured as artifacts can be encapsulated for reuse in other projects and products. Aspects of observability, lifecycle management and (automated) testing are also important requirements for enterprise applications. All these aspects were taken into account from the very beginning and are available in SAP Build.
