Future of SAP User Interface with SAP S/4HANA

After watching SAP TechEd Las Vegas, these are key points to be noticed with user interface technologies after S/4 HANA.

If you see, SAP strategy is all future developments are on SAP Fiori UX and SAP UI5 is UI technology for S/4 HANA.

All SAP UI clients (Mobile, Portal, SAP Business Client, and SAP Logon) will be consolidated to SAP Fiori Launch pad.

Nevertheless, SAP did not stop developments on FPM/WDA and Personas.

SAP future innovations of UI technologies other than SAP UI5:

FPM/WDA:  SAP Fiori launchpad integration, SAP Screen Personas implementation for WDA/FPM, Fuzzy search etc...

SAP Screen Personas: Responsive design, Theming and Mobile rendering etc… and No new development on SAP GUI.

But when you move SAP from on premises to cloud, you cannot use all user interface technologies because you should not have requirement to install SAP GUI on desktops in Cloud.

SAP S/4 HANA on Premises Edition:

· Fiori Launchpad in browser and SAP Business Client (Local Client) are available user interfaces.

· Both supports Fiori screens, SAP GUI for HTML, Webdynpro screens

SAP S/4 HANA Cloud Edition:

· Fiori LaunchPad in browser is only available which supports Fiori screens, SAP GUI for HTML, Webdynpro screens.

Below picture from SAP TechEd presentation from Johannes Wasserfall will give overview of UI technologies to be used based on devices.

Do not forget that SAP UI5(Fiori) is future of SAP UI technology and recommended technology.
