SAP Fiori: innovation at your fingertips

IN AN INCREASINGLY ‘MOBILE’ WORLD, WHERE SMARTPHONES AND TABLETS HAVE BECOME ESSENTIAL TOOLS IN OUR EVERYDAY LIFE, THE NEED FOR PLATFORMS THAT ALLOW US TO MANAGE ANY BUSINESS ACTIVITY DIRECTLY FROM OUR DEVICE IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY CRUCIAL EVERY DAY. THIS IS SOMETHINGSAP KNOWS ONLY TOO WELL, AND A FEW YEARS AGO IT PROMPTED THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW SAP FIORI INTERFACE ON THE MARKET, DESIGNED TO EXPLOIT THE MULTI-FUNCTIONALITY OF SAP SYSTEMS FROM THE USER’S SMARTPHONE AND TABLET, ENHANCED BY A MODERN AND INTUITIVE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

In recent years, the evolution of digital technologies has led to a significant change in the way companies manage their operations. In this context, SAP Fiori has revolutionised the user experience in the SAP environment.

SAP Fiori is a modern user interface (UI) technology developed by SAP and introduced in 2013 with the aim of improving the user experience of SAP software applications. It has a consistent, intuitive and responsive user interface that can be integrated into all SAP products, including SAP S/4HANA, SAP ERP and SAP ANALYTICS CLOUD.

A NEW USER EXPERIENCE

SAP Fiori is a collection of apps that can work on different platforms, including desktop pcs, tablets and smartphones. The apps are designed to cover a wide range of business functions, such as finance, human resources, procurement, sales and production, and each one is built using a responsive design that can adapt to different screen sizes and orientations. The apps are also role-based, so they are customised for the specific needs of different user roles, such as manager, sales representative or accountant.

This flexibility undoubtedly contributes to boosting team productivity and enables more effective collaboration between employees, which is one more step towards the digital transformation of companies.

SIMPLICITY AND FLEXIBILITY

Simple to use, the Fiori apps are designed to be user-friendly and require minimal training. They have a clean and modern user interface, with a focus on the most important activities and information. Fiori also uses standard web technologies, such as HTML5 and JavaScript, which makes it easy to develop and deploy new apps.

Fiori apps can be customised to meet specific business needs. For instance, a company can add its own branding, change the app layout or add new functions, thanks to the variety of design templates and tools for creating proprietary apps.

In this way, the efficiency and satisfaction of users increases, allowing them to concentrate on more important work activities.

INTERACTIVE AND REAL-TIME ANALYSES

SAP Fiori also provides real-time data access and analysis, a key advantage for decision-makers. The apps also provide interactive views and analyses that facilitate the understanding of complex data and the identification of their evolution. To communicate important events, Fiori also provides ad hoc alerts and notifications, such as a change in the status of a customer or a critical business process.

SAFETY, EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTIVITY

The main objective of SAP Fiori is to improve the productivity of business users. It provides quick access to relevant information and business functions through an intuitive and customisable user interface that favours security, efficiency and productivity.

With several built-in features, it offers a high level of security. The apps are designed to protect sensitive corporate data by providing secure authentication functions and role-based authorisations and they can be configured to allow access only to certain users or user groups.

SAP Fiori also fosters better business efficiency and productivity with apps designed to streamline business processes, automate tasks and improve collaboration between departments, minimising the time and effort required to complete a task. For example, a Fiori app for approving complaints can reduce the time required for approval and thus improve customer satisfaction; one for inventory management can speed up the inventory process by ensuring an exhaustive level of accuracy.

ADVANTAGES FOR IT

In addition to benefits for end users, SAP Fiori provides benefits for IT departments. The Fiori apps can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud, allowing companies to choose whether to host their apps on in-house servers or on cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure or others. Fiori also provides centralised monitoring and management functions. This allows IT departments to easily monitor app usage, performance and security.

A PARADIGM SHIFT

SAP Fiori presents itself as a modern, intuitive and responsive user interface technology that helps companies improve the user experience of their SAP applications. 

It ensures improved usability through its innovative design for business applications and visual and functional consistency between different SAP applications, making interaction easier and more pleasant for users and reducing confusion to maintain a uniform user experience. Users are also able to tailor the interface to their specific tasks, improving efficiency and productivity, with quick access to relevant information and high security standards that ensure only authorised persons have access to sensitive information.

Adopting SAP Fiori enables companies to remain competitive, simplify business processes and exploit the full potential of their SAP solutions.

A real paradigm shift.
