sap fiori 2.0SAP Fiori 2.0 is the new version of SAP Fiori UX. SAP Fiori replaced the clunky, arcane SAP GUI interface with a consumer-grade UX using role-based and activity-based apps — a groundbreaking change for SAP and ERP software in general. Users are able to enjoy an intuitive and consistent interface across devices, making the interface easier to learn and improving productivity for routine business tasks.

 

SAP Fiori 2.0 takes things to the next level, providing a better, more intuitive user experience for improved productivity.

 

SAP Fiori 2.0 Innovations

SAP Fiori 2.0 Gets an Overview Page: SAP Fiori UX has evolved from a set of 25 apps to handle common use cases to a catalog of hundreds of apps covering a huge range of business tasks. This provided an easier alternative to building custom apps through SAP Screen Personas, but it also created a need for new ways to streamline information.

 

SAP Fiori 2.0 developed the overview page to streamline the flow of information and tools around tasks. It serves as a bridge between the homepage and apps, collecting and displaying an overview on a particular set of apps to help users better manage the flow of tasks and information.

 

SAP Fiori 2.0 Launchpad: The launchpad is where Fiori apps run. Users go to the launchpad both to navigate to apps they know they need, and to query for apps to support new business processes. SAP Fiori 2.0 has moved away from a static model, where Fiori admins lay out apps, to a system where users can organize tools in a way that’s intuitive to them. A homepage allows users to create and group launch tiles or text links of apps in a way that makes sense to them.

 

App navigation has also been refined. Users are no longer forced to use the hub-and-spoke model to navigate apps, which can be cumbersome for mobile users or those whose jobs require many different apps. Users can now find apps using a hierarchical model, or by navigating to related apps.

 

SAP Fiori 2.0 Viewport: SAP HANA provides a lot of useful information through SAP Fiori 2.0 — more than can fit in one screen. The viewport creates a continuous virtual desk, allowing users to focus on the most important aspects of Fiori on small screens. It also allows them to maximize the benefit of multi-screen situations — such as the SAP Digital Boardroom. Rather than flipping from one screen to another, users can smoothly transition between screens for a fluid user experience.

 

Should I Upgrade to SAP Fiori 2.0?

 

Although SAP Fiori 2.0 is built on a foundation laid by the original Fiori UX, like all SAP upgrades, transitioning to 2.0 is still a significant project. You may need to upgrade your SAP S/4HANA version and front end server, and will have to take custom apps or themes into account. Working with an experienced partner can ensure your business gets all the benefits of Fiori SAP 2.0 without any unnecessary delays or complications.
