NetWeaver Portal Movie Critic: SAP Fiori Launchpad on SAP Enterprise Portal

As a part of SAP NetWeaver Portal 2014 Movie Challenge: Instructions I got a chance to review SAP Fiori Launchpad on SAP Enterprise Portal.

The movie has excellent background soundtrack(similar to Star-wars giving out-of-the-world feeling) which play throughout the movie. It would be better if some one explains the environment, scenario and steps for proceeding in Launchpad in human voice. Although it is self explanatory but voice gives a more sincere feeling toward the topic.

Movie starts with SAP Fiori Launchpad logon on SAP Enterprise Portal leading it to ‘My Home’ (homepage) where existing selected applications persists.

The movie takes us through the Tile Catalog options:


1. Browsing through the available Fiori Applications

2. Adding Tiles to Home Page from available applications list (clicking ‘+’ sign below an application)

3. Reordering of tiles on Home Page (is just a matter of drag and drop)

4. Executing Fiori Applications from Home Page(Leave Request and Travel Expense)


5. Removing Tiles from Home page (is just a matter of drag and drop)

It is always helpful to know the amount of flexibility we can provide to clients specially for web applications, where presentations (look and feel) matters the most. It could be better if more UX (user experience) sub-topics/steps in Fiori Lauchpad is added to the movie making it more content rich. Additional information with speech bubbles could have been provided.

It is always easy to be critic rather than producing a movie by ourselves. Not taking any credit out, for overall experience and simplicity in presentation, I will give the movie a 5-star rating.

      Hi Naveen,

      felt the same after watching this movie, Nice write up.

      Expected some human voice or explanation on the movie rather than a BG music.

      Hi Mahesh Chandra VVNS,

      Thanks for the comments and liking the write-up Mahesh !

      You are right, human voice has its own effect and adds expression and emotion to the movie. But not taking any credit away, nice work done by the producer after-all.
