We've had a very intense work in prepping the SAP annual event for developers because this year we launched our unified low-code/no-code offering. And as part of it, we also unveiled SAP Process Automation.

A few days after the event, let’s recap all of our activities around process automation during this amazing TechEd:

SAP Low-Code/No-code unified offering is launched!

During his keynote, Juergen Mueller explained the importance of low-code/no-code for SAP customers, who have to tackle scarcity of IT resources.

SAP CTO invited diana_roesner and markolehtimaki for showcasing a comprehensive demo of our low-code/no-code unified offering. The demo leverages SAP AppGyver for creating an application connected to S/4HANA to order replacement parts and SAP Process Automation, also using SAP AI Business Services, to build an approval workflow for these orders.

You can also watch the low-code/no-code end-to-end demo here:

Michael Weingartner, President of  SAP Business Technology Platform Core, emphasized in an article on SAP News that SAP Now Provides a Unified Low-Code/No-Code Offering. And in a Strategy Talk he explained how to Realize More Business Value with SAP Business Technology Platform.
