Strategic advisory and analyst firm Constellation Research recently released the findings from its Constellation ShortList No Code/Low Code for SAP Systems. The report from Holger Mueller spotlights five no-code/low-code applications and SAP integration solutions worth paying attention to. Each Constellation ShortList report is updated yearly, although some reports can be updated after six months if deemed necessary.
To be eligible for the ShortList, each company has to have at least 500 customers, is active in two continents or more, and offers a cloud-based no-code/low-code solution. The solution also has to come equipped with multiple integration points with SAP systems, roadmaps for extending its SAP integration capabilities, and a plan for incorporating AI and machine learning tools into its application.
The Constellation ShortList for No-Code/Low-Code for SAP Systems evaluated 20 solution providers before selecting the 5 companies listed. Constellation used a combination of partner conversations, client inquiries, vendor selection projects, market share, customer references, and internal research to determine which vendors would be included in the report. Constellation also took client company size and marketing resources into consideration.
