Deploy & Extend – openSAP and RDS complement each other

SAP Best Practices are not only part of RDS for a quick and easy implementation but also used in openSAP courses to teach you how to design, develop and deploy new Fiori apps, extend and customize existing Fiori apps, introduce course members to Fiori Cloud Editions and development tools and concepts. Rapid Deployment Solutions and openSAP courses are therefore complementing each other very well. While the Fiori apps RDS enables you to deploy any Fiori apps delivered by SAP, the openSAP course enables you to extend your portfolio of Fiori apps. The latest openSAP course Build Your Own SAP Fiori App in the Cloud has attracted over 22,000 learners. In the included “design and build” challenge 1,500 learners designed and developed their own apps using SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAP WebIDE. See here some examples: 170 app prototypes running live on the HANA Cloud Platform.

      Hi , Thanks for the sharing the info, it will be useful for clients who need few apps first to test it. Do you know how these downloaded apps make connection to their SAP back end systems. ?

      Hi Faraz,

      The Fiori apps RDS is a perfect fit for customers who are looking into a looking for a Proof of Concept (POC) implmentation of 1-10 Fiori apps. The reason is that the customer already knows in advance what the implementation costs are. In the RDS we are describing also for the most common Fiori apps the ERP Backend configuration. This means that you will get a good estimation before the implementation of what the ERP Backend configuration has to be like, so that this is good for a first test. In our RDS package  we call these documents Pre-Requisite Checks.

      Hope this helps for the first part of your question.

      In any case you can of course then build upon your "first test" implemenation (POC) and continue with a productive Go-live of those Fiori apps. These are all various service options already available in the RDS package.

      Technically the Fiori apps need of course the SAP Gateway and a SAPUI5 Frontend server to be installed. All this is part of the SAP Fiori apps RDS.

      Best Regards,

      Hi Dirk, Thanks for your reply. We have actually implemented an RDS with one of our clients with basic seven apps including Purchase, Time sheet and Sales related. I understand the benefits of RDS as clients would see it themselves and realize it's benefits and which worked for us too.

      My question was mainly around what's new with this release as mentioned in this article.

      As a part of our RDS we installed SAP Gateway Front end and back end server, had the right components installed on ECC ( It was for transactional apps), activated the Odata service, configured backend end and there you go.....We also did POC for our other clients on our system. So basically,  is it the same approach or anything new has changed with this release ?

      Hi Faraz,

      ok, I had misunderstood your question then. I am very happy that you have already used the RDS in the past.

      Technically the Fiori apps have not changed. This was not the reason for this new release.

      We have added the following:

      1) we added new Fiori apps to the Pre-Requisite Checks. How to configure the ERP Backend system

      2) really new is the Service Option, that can be used to implement the S/4HANA related Fiori apps including Analytics or other UX needed for S/4HANA.

      3) you can now explore and view the content of the SAP Fiori apps RDS easily on a tablet or even on your smart phone by using this link:

      Hope this helps.

      Best, Dirk
