SAP buys up Finnish Appgyver

German software giant SAP said it has acquired Finnish startup AppGyver, a pioneer in no-code development platforms that enable users with no coding skills to build applications for Web and mobile uses.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Appgyver has raised a total of $11 million over years from investors like Karma Ventures and Open Ocean.

“AppGyver helps us expand our no-code capabilities and establish a comprehensive offering in this area,” said Michael Weingartner, president, SAP Business Technology Platform Core, SAP.

“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,” he said.

Helsinki-headquartered AppGyver, which employs 18 staff,  develops and sells a no-code app development platform that creates applications for the Web and for mobile use. The company offers a powerful visual development environment that is extraordinarily user-friendly. It allows business users with no coding experience to build efficient applications that can be easily configured and that work seamlessly across all operating systems – without writing a single line of code.
