Hi Anil,

Fiori uses SAP Netweaver Gateway system for interacting with the backend.

In Gateway system , we need pure Object oriented ABAP developers as services has to be created using Classes and Methods. Data provider and Model provider.

But now we have SEGW transaction launched, which has minimized the effort of ABAP developer in coding, but we still have more on Enhancements topics, BADI implementation, Implicit enhancements etc.

Fiori has provided only standard scenarios, but if you deliver it to client, they will have too many customizations depending on their requirement and solutions already running on backend. So we need to extend Fiori standard applications with open enhancement points already available.

Also if you have knowledge of SAP Workflows, it will be like a cherry on top of your cake (added advantage ) Most of the Fiori applications which Clients requires are Approval apps. As they have custom scenarios on backend / Custom workflows. You need to debug/check workflow logs and understand how the workflows are working and how it should exactly appear in the front end..

Enhancements and Workflows are 2 important things, Fiori seeks from ABAP developer.

Regards,

Tejas

Hi Anil,

are you wants to know about the career prospect in terms of implementation of it.

See, fiori was made to use some sort kind of work to be done , with minimum effort.

Like approval, mail, etc......

As fiori has its limitations, because of the limitations with mobile, i means to say

it can not be used for any drill down activities, as going from one table to another

will become tedious when ram will gets consumed in mobiles.

So if you are willing to learn the making of sap fiori, you can do it yourself

by doing you will get many ideas, that how it works, what is the concept behind it.

And if you have done it , any how definately it helps in your career and future.

As Sanjeev Suggested all about fiori... More you can find on google too..

As per career prospects, its new and highly demanding now a days and its also a programming language so for an ABAPer learning this, won't be much difficult because logic are same for all language just syntax changes you need to learn.
