Exciting News!  SAP recently released the 4th shipment of Fiori apps and updates.  As a result there are now 300+ apps available.  This latest release includes 40 new Transactional, 8 new Factsheet, and 59 new Analytical apps.  The new components are available in SAP Service Marketplace.  The new version of the Fiori documentation is now available on help.sap.com.  A new central document has been introduced summarizing the most important changes in the SAP Fiori environment in this shipment.  Also there is now a Fiori Configuration Quick Guide available.  There are support packages available for the existing apps AND the recent SP08 release for the SAP UI add-on is also available for use with the apps and Fiori Launchpad.
These new Fiori apps are GA. but with Monitored Delivery (not Ramp Up).  Monitored Delivery is a feedback and support channel for licensed customers who plan to implement Fiori apps. There is now a voluntary (optional) registration program to support our customers known as the Fiori (GA) Care Program.  With this program, SAP continues to offer additional support for new app deployments during the General Availability phase.  (See below).
See the following for more details:

      Hi Jan,

      There were several Travel related apps released in Wave 1/2.  Are you referring to one of those or something else?  What was the purpose of the “planned Travel Expense Fiori application”?

          I thought I remembered an app named My Travel Expenses, but it is not one that is listed.  There is My Travel Requests, but that is not what you are asking about.  I suspect that submitting expenses using Fiori may be conflicting with the 1-1-3 focus of Fiori apps.  Will dig a little deeper and maybe Masayuki Sekihara can provide some insight to this app.

                Hi Krishna,

                I have just had information from SAP that SAP Fiori My Travel
                Expenses shipment is being pushed to October 27th release.

                The good news is that the functionalities in the application looks very promising from the presentation I’ve seen.

    After Fiori’s 4th release and with the change to the Fiori pricing policy (now free with other SAP software products), the Monitored Delivery Program is no longer a mandatory part of using the Fiori UX.  There is now an Fiori Care Program which is optional for registration and participation.  If Customers create CSN messages and are not registered, they will be approached by SAP and OFFERED participation in the program.

    Changes are in process regarding this in other support documentation areas, so if there is confusion, please create a Discussion.  This will give us the opportunity to correct what may have been missed in the short time since the pricing policy was changed.

    Thanks, Mike

      Hi Mike,

      Where I can find information on Fiori Care Program ?

      Is all the released FIORI apps are free to SAP business Suite customers?

      From when existing SAP Suite customers get this benefit ?

      Thanks,

      Midhun VP

        Hi Midhun,

        1) There was an embedded link in the Fiori Care Program section which takes you to the GAC Program of which Fiori is a part.  As far as I have been able to determine (and this is still new to me also), the same Ramp Up/Monitored Delivery folks are supporting it.  One big difference is that it is no longer mandatory to register in order to download the materials.

        2) That is my understanding.

        3) Since the change is so recent, it may take a little while to fully implement, but existing customers all get this benefit.  However the Account Executives will have to provide the details which I am both not authorized and not knowledgeable enough to get into the specifics.  I suspect it will vary somewhat customer to customer.

        Thanks, Mike
