How Pillir and ASUG Drive Innovation in SAP

With a continuous focus on modernization within the ERP world, many SAP customers are placing more value on low code application development to help enhance and advance their SAP systems.

Low code application development is a software development approach to coding that allows users to create and manage applications quickly with minimal manual coding required -  automating the creation of web apps in a manner that makes their creation both quick and effective. Low code application development for SAP ERP provides an innovative and cost-effective approach for SAP Customers and low code solutions like EdgeReady Cloud can provide visibility into TCO and time spent on building and maintaining applications to further increase the ability to modernize SAP ERP. Sounds great, right?

With this new modernization approach and constantly changing trends in development, its obvious that a community of like-minded professional who are also seeking best practices to modernize SAP ERP systems, with mechanisms such as low-code, would be beneficial.  

America’s SAP Users Group (ASUG), an almost 30 year old community of over 130,000 SAP-tenured professionals, provides SAP customers with a trusted, meaningful community to interact with, share stories amongst, and learn from on a daily basis — all while conversing about cost-effective and time-saving strategies such as low code application development solutions like EdgeReady Cloud.

In this blog, the value of Pillir’s solutions, in conjunction with ASUG’s community value will be highlighted, along with how this partnership helps save SAP Customer time and money while enhancing their SAP experience and knowledge.
