At a Glance: SAP ABAP
Initially developed by the German software company Systems, Applications & Products in Data Processing (SAP) in 1983, Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) is a programming language designed for the SAP Application Server and the NetWeaver platform for business applications. If you’re looking to upgrade, maintain, or develop software for your SAP application server, you’ll need the help of a SAP ABAP developer to help you get started.
A SAP ABAP developer can create and modify ABAP code so that you can run your own business systems with relative ease. The ABAP Workbench provides a variety of tools that developers can use to quickly edit programs, including ABAP Editor, ABAP Dictionary, Menu Painter, Screen Painter, Function Builder, and Class Builder. They can manage program transactions, manipulate database tables, perform calculations, and otherwise help you run and maintain your SAP application server. SAP ABAP developers on Upwork can use ABAP Development Tools (ADT) to develop custom reports, module pools, and other ABAP programs to support the back end of your business applications.
