How to start with SAP AppGyver Low-Code/No-Code Platform
Introduction – What is SAP AppGyver
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.
My Use Case / Prototype
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.
Another Use Case / Prototype
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.

- AppGyver on SAP Blogs
- SAP API Hub

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.
