Why use SAP BUILD?

SAP BUILD is prototyping tool that can jump start Fiori UI5 development. This tool provides the following capability.

  1. Design interactive screens with Fiori design elements

  2. Create actionable screens that mimics real business process flow

  3. Create your own data for prototype that makes sense for your organization

  4. Users can validate this prototype before writing single line of code

  5. Gather feedback right on the screen and see 'heatmap' for user's activity

  6. Download prototype that will generated XML code. This code can be directly imported into SAP WebIDE to jump start your Fiori development.

SAP came-up with great Fiori and design guideline. SAP also launched Fiori library to jump start Fiori UI5 app development, but there are not many SAP PM (Plant maintenance) apps available for ECC customer if they are not on S/4 HANA.

This prototype can be adopted for your organization to start journey to improve user experience. Simply adopt this prototype in your BUILD account and start modifying fit your business requirements.

Points to consider while designing prototype:

  • User experience (UX) is much deeper than user interface (UI)

  • Fiori guidelines are great

  • Run simple, Run fasters, Run father

Hope this helps in improving user experience for your organization.

I welcome your feedback.
