- SAP Business Application Studio is the new cloud-based development environment for SAP’s multi-cloud environment
- SAP Fiori tools speeds up the process of creating SAP Fiori elements apps
- SAPUI5 continues to evolve with new functionality that puts more control in developers’ hands.
As always, please let us know what topics would you like to see in this newsletter.
