Developers are helping companies transform the way they do business. Every day, they release new apps that help connect people, things, and businesses and help companies operate faster and in a more agile way. This is why I’ve taken to calling developers the new superheroes.
SAP has long seen developers as key enablers of our vision to help businesses run better and make the world a better place. Supporting and working in partnership with developers is a key priority for SAP. And at the heart of our efforts to work with developers is a pursuit of openness.
Openness Is at Our Core
We know that technologists from outside SAP play a crucial role in helping our customers succeed. So, we want to ensure that developers can make the most of our technology and use their existing expertise and skill sets to create groundbreaking new applications.
For this reason, openness is at the core of our strategy. From providing application programming interfaces (APIs) to our incorporation of open-source platform-as-a-service technology from the Cloud Foundry project into SAP Cloud Platform, we are doing everything we can to help non-SAP developers create and innovate with our software.
The result: Developers can achieve more in less time and the cost of development for our customers and partners has been drastically reduced.

See It in Action
One way to see this openness in action is at SAP TechEd, an event this fall in three locations where the developer community can learn more in person or online about SAP’s innovations for digital transformation, hyperconnectivity, and other important topics for developers.
For more information about the event, see the sidebar, “Welcoming the Developer Community at SAP TechEd.”
