Fiori HCM Apps Pre-requisites

Please note new versions of HR apps on EHP7 are released.


In this blog, I am sharing my experience with Fiori HCM Implementations. There were many confusions on the prerequisites and questions raised on – why Fiori? Is ESS/MSS required for HR Fiori applications? and many. Here I am sharing my learnings on the prerequisites required.


Let me tell you one thing. Fiori has nothing to do with your portal configurations, with your custom webdynpro or any customizations done on portal. It has no relation with ess/mss. If ESS/MSS is already implemented on your landscape. No need to redo any configurations. Because this means that your HCM usecases are already functionally configured like OM, Time/leave eREC, Profiles , HR->Finance , Payroll etc.


Fiori applications are role based applications and some of the main roles are Employee and Manager Roles which comes under HCM module.

In order to start with HCM applications below are the prerequisites. (To Try HCM Fiori applications, visit SAP Fiori, Demo Cloud Edition)


To Check available HCM apps. Go to Fiori Apps Library


Sometime people may face loss of data and they just implement basis addons and implement all mandatory notes. But the main thing is functional data and from HR perspective below possible configurations should already exist in the system.
