Visual Composer has been a packaged component of SAP NetWeaver 2004 since its release in 2005. SAP has hailed Visual composer as the tool set that “lets IT Specialists and Business Analysts create model-based, flexible applications – quickly, without writing a single line of code. The result is streamlined business processes, lower IT development costs, and satisfied employees and customers.” This is a quite appealing statement as lifting the reliance on programmers and having satisfied employees and customers must be every manager’s dream.

Is it really possible to get away with “no coding” – i.e. should you sack all your ABAP and web programmers?
How does it work?
What are its limitations?
And most importantly what are some of the potential opportunities Visual Composer opens up in your organisation?
This document aims to help you to answer these questions.
