Definitions: Low Code Development refers to application development leveraging tools/solutions (like drag drop, rules based frameworks) to eliminate the need for most of the coding requirements. However, some coding still might be needed for specific purposes where the functionality needs developer’s involvement. No Code Development, on the other hand, eliminates the need for any coding.
Earlier, every ERP solution (for that matter, any application) depended heavily on skilled developers as they involved significant customisation. Over time, tools/solutions were embedded in the platform to reduce some dependency on the development team. In SAP, a lot of business problems used to be a part of development work before they were designed into customisation configuration.
Most platforms have started reducing their erstwhile dependency to the point where Low-Code and No-Code is a reality. Currently, SAP Cloud is using a hybrid of low-code no-code strategy for development. Some of the prominent examples include – using workflows in tax filing, using smart factory in manufacturing.
