Fiori Technology – An evolving story
As part of an internal project, my colleague Wolfgang Scheer and I, with the support and in close collaboration with teams across SAP, began setting up a Fiori landscape from scratch, simulating a real life customer environment. As a result of this effort, we wanted to share the knowledge we gained with the Fiori community, right here on SCN. Regardless of whether you’ve been on the Fiori journey from the beginning or you’re just starting out, there might be something in here of interest. These lessons learned are meant for anyone who’s interested in a pragmatic approach to the technical setup of a Fiori landscape, end to end.
The ultimate goal of our internal project is to provide a simple end-to-end experience along the whole product lifecycle, having the evolving Fiori Technologies in focus while assisting selected customer projects. The first step of the project was to build an on-prem landscape that emulates a customer environment, with a given SAP ERP back-end system that functions like a productive live system. We had two Fiori apps in mind to start: Check Price and Availability and Create Sales Orders. As such, we had to begin by installing and configuring all of the pieces for our landscape, which include an SAP Enterprise Portal, SAP Solution Manager, SAP Netweaver Web Dispatcher, SAP Fiori Frontend components and SAP Fiori Backend components.
If it sounds too simple, please rest assured that we are not stopping here. As technology evolves, we plan on making use of the latest tools available, as well as innovating the landscape. These changes will not be made randomly, but are going to be based on close observation of our customers’ reality. For example, as a sneak peak, we plan on adding a 2nd Frontend Server.
For now, we are going to share with you the complete Fiori landscape setup, step by step. Since we clearly won’t be able to cover everything in one session, we’ll start by hosting the first webinar of a mini-series on September 10th, at 3 pm CET.
In the first webinar, Wolfgang will walk you through the installation and configuration of a standalone SAP Gateway for the Fiori landscape using the new Maintenance Planner tool, SAP Software Update Manager 1.0 with SL Common GUI and the Technical Configuration Automation for SAP Fiori Frontend.

In the second webinar of this series, Wolfgang will continue with the configuration and optimization of the SAP Fiori Launchpad and the configuration of the SAP Fiori Apps chosen for this example, including the necessary configuration for both Frontend and Backend Components. Further on, the integration and configuration of SAP Web Dispatcher and SAP Enterprise Portal will be included in this webinar as well.
|Technical Setup of an SAP Fiori Landscape – Part 2|
In this third webinar of this series, Wolfgang Scheer from the SAP Technology RIG, will continue to further develop the SAP Fiori Landscape that was already setup, by adding a new dimension to it: integration of the SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 into the SAP Fiori Landscape. As we are moving into the direction of mobilizing Fiori, the Fiori Client and HCPms topics will be approached as well.

With this third webinar, we are ending our mini series for now. But we would love to hear your feedback and the range of other Fiori topics you might be interested in. Feel free to post your feedback in the comment below or send us an email.
We look forward to seeing you again online soon!
Good Initiative.. Thanks for sharing..

Good one for Fiori beginners like me.
Thanks for sharing, waiting for more sessions on FIORI.
Thank you, Registered !! Exciting to learn Fiori 🙂
thanks for sharing..
We have done it recently and found the solution fairly easy to set up. Dr. Vishal Sikka had his vision right about this no doubt. Logon
Excellent! Feel free to share your experience with the Fiori community here.
Hello Alexandra, absolutely fine. In short the Fiori installation and configuration was quite easy and straight forward including the setup of the SAP Gateway.
However we did experience some difficulties with setting up solution manager and Maintenance Optimizer(MOPZ) configuration which was quite complex and took a lot of time. If you can take a deeper look at this last point I think it would be helpful for all. Our basis guru is quiet a star and if he had trouble setting it up I suppose it could be a common issue.
