For many customers, the consumption of the SAP Enterprise Portal on mobile devices is a major enhancement for their existing SAP Enterprise Portal implementation and, in some cases, a key component in the corporate mobile strategy.

Since the release of SAP Fiori and the introduction of the Fiori launchpad with a clear strategic direction to (1) apply the Fiori launchpad on multiple platform (ABAP, SAP Enterprise Portal and Cloud) (2) align the User Experience of the different clients (Portal, NWBC) with the Fiori User Experience – the new Fiori framework page is the recommended framework page for consuming the SAP Portal on mobile devices in a launcher/launchpad scenario.

Additional enhancements and new functionalities will be delivered as part of the new Fiori framework page.

While designing and developing the new Fiori framework page (a.k.a FLP@EP) we put special attention to minimizing the transition effort between the previous mobile framework pages and the new Fiori framework page (by using the same configurations and settings), while providing more capabilities with the new one, such as:

  • Rich end user experience for desktop and mobile consumption
  • Responsive design running on both desktop and mobile devices with an aligned User Experience across devices, following the SAP Fiori design
  • Extended PAM support
  • Theme customization with the UI theme designer
  • Developed on top of SAPUI5 libraries

Recommendation:

EXISTING CUSTOMERS

Customer running the existing mobile framework pages (i.e. Personalized Launcher and smartphone/tablet framework pages) are advised to evaluate and plan to implement the new Fiori framework page for mobile (and optionally desktop) consumption.

NEW CUSTOMERS

Customer who are now starting a project to consume the SAP Portal on mobile devices are advised to use the new Fiori framework page.

Finally, the renewal of the portal with the Fiori design is not complete without the integration of the Fiori applications in the portal, and this is also already available for a subset of the Fiori apps. For the veteran portal experts, you can think about the Fiori apps as the new multichannel business content for the portal, across devices.

    Hello Aviad,

    Nice to hear about the new developments in the space of EP.

    I would like to know, if we can have the fiori framework page in the existing portal installation?

    Thank you.

    Regards,

      Yes! You just need to upgrade to the right Service Pack (we do recommend the latest SP…).

      Note that it is available on NetWeaver 7.31 and 7.4 (with the right SP).

      Regards,

        EP is on a renewed path to widespread adoption. The Cloud portal especially is fantastic and great for the customers looking for customer-web experience on SAP.

        Best of luck to EP and SAP.

        Regards,

    Interesting blog!!

    I am currently evaluating SAP Portal’s limitations on Mobile devices.

    Framework page in fiori certainly goes in favor of SAP EP.
