SAP has acquired Finland-based no-code development platform operator AppGyver for an undisclosed price.

AppGyver’s no-code app development platform is used for creating applications for mobile, browser, desktop, TV and others.

The platform enables business users without any coding experience to build applications that can be configured easily and that work across all operating systems, without writing a single line of code.

AppGyver’s Marko Lehtimaki, in a company blog, wrote: “Everyone in the current AppGyver team will continue on, building the product and driving the vision; joining forces with a truly global technology powerhouse simply enables us to march towards our goals with orders of magnitude more resources.”

SAP said that the acquisition will make it better placed to aid its customers and partners in adapting their IT systems efficiently to their specific requirements and also streamline the usability of their applications.

SAP business technology platform core president Michael Weingartner said: “Going forward, we can deliver a full range of simple and integrated application development tools that allow customers, partners and our own teams to enhance process automation and further improve the experience for users of SAP applications.

“By adding AppGyver’s solutions to our own no-code capabilities, we facilitate the creation of workflows, forms, robotic process automation and lightweight case management.”

The solutions of AppGyver will become part of SAP Business Technology Platform. They are expected to broaden the offering of the German software giant in the area of business process intelligence.

In particular, the acquisition is said to expand SAP’s RISE with SAP package, which was launched last month. SAP Business Technology Platform and business process intelligence are the main parts of the package.

According to SAP, the new offering will help firms undertake holistic business transformations for becoming resilient, agile, and intelligent.

Besides, AppGyver’s solutions will be a complementary addition to the company’s low-code offering provided by partner Mendix Tech, which is part of Siemens.
