SAP's selection of Mendix as its RAD platform of choice to extend SAP solutions sends a powerful message to all traditional IT organizations. Low-code is not only here to stay, but has ambitions to become the leader in enterprise software development. - Ricky Volz, COO Kinetech
HOUSTON (PRWEB) March 02, 2020
Continuing the momentum for low-code adoption in 2020, Kinetech - a Platform Mendix Partner, has recently signed an agreement to become an SAP PartnerEdge partner, to assist clients looking to leverage the full power of HANA (High performance ANalytic Appliance) in combination with the speed of low-code to address business needs more quickly.
As enterprises invest in digitizing their operations, business demand for new and innovative applications is growing significantly faster than the capacity of IT organizations to deliver them. Gartner predicts that by 2020, at least 50% of all new business applications will be created with high-productivity toolsets.
Kinetech is positioned to help organizations close this gap by leveraging the power of SAP with the flexibility of Mendix. For over six years Kinetech has enabled clients adopting low-code, and led or supported hundreds of low-code projects across North America. Kinetech employs three of the top 15 Mendix certified experts in the United States. Kinetech’s clients include large cities, publicly listed companies, and medium-sized enterprises.
Through this agreement, Kinetech aims to enhance adoption of the SAP Cloud Platform services with Mendix’s industry-leading low-code development capabilities. SAP Cloud Platform Rapid Application Development will help customers shorten time to value for applications that increase operational efficiency and customer engagement. Running on SAP Cloud Platform, the solution offers tight integrations out-of-the-box with SAP systems, data and services, helping enterprises unlock even greater business value from their investments in SAP software.
As SAP ECC will be sunset in 2025, existing customers must migrate to SAP 4/HANA. Industry best practice mandates keeping your SAP core vanilla while using Mendix, the only low code solution that runs natively on SAP, for customizations. Clients with existing ECC customizations should begin rationalizing their application portfolios and modernizing these solutions to reduce maintenance (and ultimately total cost of ownership) costs.
Existing clients looking to take advantage of the SAP® Cloud Platform Rapid Application Development by Mendix should contact their SAP representatives or Kinetech directly.
