in many projects and POCs that we’ve done with SAP Cloud for Customer in 2013 we often had to enrich the Account view. Sometimes we just had to include a HTML mashup to show additional information dynamically (without persistency in the Cloud solution). However, from my perspective a real benefit comes from additional business objects which are linked to standard objects like Account. Why? Because you can navigate seemlessly from one object/UI to another without performance losses, you can fully use these additional objects in your reporting, you can easily show then on the mobile device etc etc.
When I was reading through this community I found some very good instructions how to do this. In addition to them I want to share an end-to-end scenario how to build a customer specific object CustomerContract and embedd it into the Account TI. I think the diffucult part was the configuration and correct parameter binding. Nevertheless the development time in this example was unbelievably fast: 10 min 29 secs! Feel free to rebuild it 😉

One step back: see how the Business Object and UIs were built initially:
