How to start with SAP AppGyver Low-Code/No-Code Platform

SAP AppGyver is a Low-Code/No-Code platform with which you can build apps very quick and easy.

SAP has acquired AppGyver in 2021. The official press release you can find here: “SAP Acquires No-Code Development Pioneer AppGyver”.

AppGyver is now also integrated in the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) and accessible from there.

In this blogpost I would like to show some simple examples of what SAP AppGyver can be used for.

In my Use Case / Prototype I like to build a simple Mobile App, which is connected via the SAP API Hub to the SAP Cloud Product SAP Cloud ALM.

Here is a simple architecture sketch:

Connection with the Backend / Data Source

To receive data from the source system, I have to make the right configuration from AppGyver to the source system. Therefore I refer to the “REST API” or the “OData” Integration”.

To find the correct API reference string, I use the relevant method from the API from the SAP API Hub. That’s where I’m currently at with the configuration.

Also very helpful are learning Apps, with which you can learn new topics or learn about a product.

This app could be further enriched with gamification and challenges to maximize the user experience.

If you dive into the topic of SAP AppGyver for a few hours, you get into the topic relatively quickly.

I learn best when I directly apply what I have learned. Therefore, whenever possible, I try to create a concrete prototype directly in the system.

Personally I think AppGyver is a great addition to the SAP Ecosystem.

I hope I was able to give you some suggestions and show you how to get started using a simple example.
