Good Bye 2014, Welcome 2015…

Let’s take few minutes to look back at 2014 and try to predict the big areas that we will talk about in 2015.


In my area, no doubt that 2014 was the Fiori year. Starting with the very long debate about the Fiori pricing, all the way to the major announcement at SAPPHIRE 2014 that Fiori is now included in the customers’ license.

A key Fiori offering (which is also very close to my daily work) is the new multi-channel applicative entry point – SAP Fiori launchpad. From the initial launch of the Fiori launchpad on the ABAP FES, via the renewal of the SAP Enterprise Portal with a new personalizable and responsive framework page following the Fiori design – Fiori launchpad running on the SAP Portal, all the way to releasing the Fiori launchpad on HANA Cloud Platform.


The renewal of the SAP Portal is not completed without the consumption of Fiori apps in the portal. Just before the year ended (Yey!), we have released the list of supported stand-alone Fiori apps (SAP Note: 2103156), expect this list to grow in the future… Not to forget some architectural aspects of running Portal-Fiori in an external facing scenario as part of this portal renewal:


Same goes for the cloud deployment option, Fiori launchpad on HANA Cloud platform is not completed without releasing also Fiori apps running on HCP, but for this we need some more patience… (for now you can use SAP Web IDE to develop your own Fiori-like apps and consume them via the launchpad).

For me, 2014 will not be complete without two additional topics: SAP Web IDE and HANA Cloud Portal.

Starting with the renaming of Web IDE from River RDE to Web IDE, all the way to having Web IDE as THE tool to extend and develop new Fiori-like apps running on-premise and on the cloud (HCP).

Finally, this year we also had a great momentum for the HANA Cloud Portal – new customers going live, delivering new features faster-and-faster, and the new Fiori user experience as part of the Cloud Portal offering. This is actually a great connection to 2015…


Let’s welcome 2015 with only two pictures (hint, hint…):

Looking forward for an exciting 2015 and hope to meet many of you at SAPPHIRE, TechEd, Design Councils, InsideTracks and workshops across counties and continents.

Wishing you all happy holidays and a great 2015!

      Thank you Aviad ! As usual it is really heIpfull.

      I just looked at the PAM and I noticed that all the first Fiori Apps 1.0 will be EOM on May 2015.

      What does that mean ? Is HR Renewal the sucessor ? What is the SAP strategy around this ?

      We actually are looking for our first implementation of a Fiori apps and this could change our choice of solutions for mobile approbation for example.

      for a new implementaion Fiori 1.0 apps are not the right choice - instead use the apps and products as described here : SAP Fiori for SAP Business Suite – SAP Help Portal Page

      Regarding Maintenance: please have a look at SAP's Release Strategy at

      For the Fiori products  the maintenance strategy rules for addon products apply.
