SAP Fiori: 3 Tips to Keep in Mind

By: Bayforce    Posted: July 7, 2020    Category: SAP

SAP Fiori is the user interface or user experience (UX) that supplements and can replace the SAP GUI. This streamlined application uses tiles to encapsulate standard tasks, such as approving purchase requisitions, viewing sales orders, and approving timesheets. 

There’s a substantial difference between the SAP GUI and SAP Fiori UX. SAP GUI was cumbersome and difficult to learn, whereas SAP Fiori has more seamless movements and controls with simple, customizable and modern screens.

This is at the bottom of why Fiori delivers a 64% reduction in time required to complete a task.

If your organization is looking to leverage SAP Fiori for increased productivity, here are three tips to keep in mind:  

1. Get clear on intuitive workflows. SAP Fiori is designed around business logic — not SAP logic — and, if implemented correctly, can be leveraged for great gains in your organization’s productivity across all teams. 

An “intuitive” workflow, however, can differ slightly from firm to firm — what does it look like for your organization? Getting clear on your team’s style of work and existing business processes ensures you can develop easily-adopted business applications that maximize efficiency and support your employees across departments.

2. Skill-up. Your organization can adopt third-party tools or create custom business app solutions. First, check out the Fiori library as it now offers thousands of apps, decreasing the need for firms to build their tools. This is good news for organizations looking to avoid building new software from the ground up. 

At the same time, don’t wait for someone to send you to training. Skill up in web technology skills like HTML or Javascript that will aid your understanding of the underlying behavior of custom SAP Fiori applications. Familiarize yourself with browser debuggers and RESTful API’s or take SAP courses that will help you lead your team in seamless, rapid app development.

3. Business workflow expertise. SAP provides a complete toolkit for designing, building and deploying Fiori apps, but implementing Fiori as a part of your organization’s S/4HANA solution requires workflow and technical capabilities — Bayforce is here to help.
