Integrate an Embedded Component into the Account Thing Inspector
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:
