Application Development

Business Introduction

Your company uses the intelligent suite from SAP. Most of the software in this package is a cloud-based software as a service solution. You want to adapt some UI screens, extend existing APIs with an SAPUI5 app, build a custom development app running on SAP BTP and your company want to unify the digital experience of their employees.

Caused by the rising amount of SaaS solutions in the market you are not able to modify the software like in the old on-premise system. You need to use new concepts of custom development and extending the software portfolio used in your enterprise. The app development capabilities of the SAP BTP is a portfolio of solutions that help you simplify development of your application extensions or custom applications. It is optimized for SAP applications to extend the value of your existing SAP investments, but it is also open to extending third-party applications.

With the capabilities of Application Development you want to achieve three key values:

Digital Experience:
  • Deliver consistent, collaborative experiences for your business applications.
  • The possible outcome: increased user productivity, a single access point for your applications and mobile usability.
  • Products like SAP Conversational AI, SAP Mobile Service or SAP Fiori (and more), are the basis for these experiences.
Digital Process Automation:
  • Automate, enhance, and adapt business processes beyond standard customer needs or market expectations.
  • This can potentially results in task automations, workflow automations and more.
  • Products like SAP Workflow Management, SAP iRPA and more to fulfil your business process automation needs.
Development Efficiency:
  • Develop and manage your enterprise application extensions or custom developments across any landscape with effective tools.
  • This will increase the quality of your developments and improve the developer experience.
