SAP Visual Composer : Introduction, Architecture And Opportunities

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. However, many questions remain.

  • What exactly is Visual Composer?
  • 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.
