Launchpad Service vs. Cloud Portal Service

Hello together,

i am looking forward to setup a "Launchpad / Portal" Service for our Development Environment to deploy showcases to a Launchpad to got a tile collection with all usecases also with the intention to use the Launchpad feature for demonstration like the notification...

Now I am looking for the differnce of the "Lauchpad Service" & the "Cloud Portal Service"...

I found in this blog entry "https://blogs.sap.com/2020/09/11/building-a-central-launchpad-using-sap-cloud-platform-launchpad-service-getting-started/" --> The key difference is that the freestyle capability has been removed from the Launchpad service.


What is the freestyle capability? And are their any other differences? Which Service would you recommend?

Cheers & Thanks!

Carsten

Hi Carsten,

I would suggest you watch the replay of the SAP TechEd 2020 Session by aviad.rivlin :

Thanks Gregor 🙂

So If i right understand... if I want to use Native HTML5 Apps beside my Fiori Apps on the Portal, I should need to use the "Portal Service" right?

Hello Carsten,

with "Freestyle" capability you are able to create pixel-perfect pages, containing pictures and other "unstructured" content.
If "Application Integration" is your main task then "Launchpad" service would be the right choice.

Cheers,
Johannes
