SAP Fiori app development

Digital transformation requires rapid app development

In today’s fast-changing world with ever-evolving technology, tough competition, and high customer expectations, businesses need to use technology to keep up and stay ahead. This means making new processes and functions available quickly and easily through digitization. But this also means being able to turn old SAP processes into new easy-to-use digital solutions easily. The SAP IT team can no longer afford to let months or even weeks pass before implementing new technical requirements from business departments. However, considering the industry-wide scarce IT personnel resources, it is no surprise that some find it difficult to create even just the business-critical SAP Fiori apps within a reasonable time period. Expanding existing developer teams is also usually not an option due to high costs and the shortage of qualified specialists.

Companies are, therefore, increasingly turning to the power and benefit of low-code for their SAP Fiori app development. This approach reduces the time-to-market of SAP Fiori apps while simultaneously lessening the workload on IT. To get it right, SAP Fiori app development requires the right set of tools to make it easier. More and more IT departments are choosing Neptune Software for the solution – because it is the easiest to use with SAP  and any other 3rd party system or software in place.

SAP Fiori app development without coding experience

The Neptune DX Platform (Neptune DXP) can accelerate SAP Fiori app development by a factor of ten. Instead of writing a lot of code, developers can use a simple solution based on application building blocks where they use drag and drop to build new apps. Specific programming knowledge or even skill sets to work with SAP BTP are no longer required.

With Neptune DXP, companies leverage their ABAP know-how in a native development environment that easily integrates with existing development processes and tools. In addition, the platform is fully integrated with SAP Business Suite and SAP S/4HANA  Therefore, the solution can be used before, during and after a S/4HANA conversion, especially as a side-by-side extension. Some companies even use Neptune DXP to easily and quickly re-write where the standard doesn’t fit because it can significantly speed up the S/4HANA conversion process.

Another major advantage is that any backend, cloud resource and architecture can be connected to created apps using APIs. Thus, data from silos can be merged and made available in real-time.
