Topic #14 is about the SAP Fiori design system and its role in accessing SAP S/4HANA innovations

SAP Fiori is the go-to user interface of SAP S/4HANA. SAP Fiori launchpad offers a role-based, single-access point for business users to access all UIs of SAP S/4HANA, including SAP Fiori apps, as well as visually harmonized classical UIs such as SAP GUI transactions. Therefore, those who don’t implement SAP Fiori will have only a limited benefit from the innovations in SAP S/4HANA.

The UX paradigm of SAP Fiori differs from the classical transaction pattern. Instead of big multipurpose transactions, SAP Fiori offers a navigation network of task-oriented UIs interconnected through SAP Fiori launchpad content. Selectively implementing only some individual SAP Fiori apps breaks the user experience and results in high implementation costs. Therefore, we strongly recommend starting with a copy of the business roles and catalogs delivered by SAP and adjusting them to your needs.

Here are key tools to support your SAP Fiori implementation:
