SAP Demystified: SAP Fiori

November 8, 2018

The SAP Fiori design language is used in SAP applications, including the S/4HANA and C/4HANA suites, SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP Data Hub, SAP Ariba and others. Applications that use the Fiori design language are often called Fiori applications or Fiori user interfaces (UIs). SAP Fiori designs can be implemented using almost any technology, though SAP provides Fiori-compliant UI libraries in its SAPUI5 JavaScript library, as well as the SAP Cloud Platform software development kit (SDK) for iOS and SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Android.

 

SAP Fiori 2.0

SAP Fiori 2.0 was released in October 2016 and is the leading design for all SAP applications providing a harmonized user experience across on premise and cloud solutions. A new visual theme – named Belize – comes along with light and dark flavors. Using SAP S/4HANA, the UI Theme Designer allows you to adapt the theme to your corporate identity.

 

  • With SAP Fiori 2.0, the SAP Fiori Launchpad is your central and role-based entry point  to access all apps.

  • With the viewport concept, the user’s desktop has been expanded to the left and to the right. While users can access the Me Area to the left, notifications on the right keep them well informed.     

  • The SAP Fiori 2.0 concept also includes new SAP Fiori elements – Overview Pages, List Reports, and Object Pages – which can be easily developed using SAP Web IDE.

 

Types of Fiori apps:

 

  • Transactional applications designed for interacting with individual business objects such as customers or sales orders, managing lists of business objects or carrying out a specific business process such as posting of financial documents.

  • Analytical applications meant to analyze a business question or visualize a business process or set of key performance indicators (KPIs) at a higher level.

  • Fact Sheets, designed to display all the relevant information regarding a specific business object in one place.

 

Functional Capabilities
SAP Fiori UX design principles - The design concept is based on five core principles that combine to deliver a deeply satisfying user experience:
