Introducing SAP Fiori Overview Page: Card-based Information Visualization
SAP Fiori Overview Page was first publicly introduced in TechEd Las Vegas last week (19 – 22.Oct.2015) and immediately captured the imagination of the participants. Following is a short blog on the why and what of SAP fiori Overview Page.
Business users are managing big amount of data and information for their day to day tasks. For each one of their domains, they require to understand current status, sensitize the data and react upon it.
While Fiori Launchpad answers the homepage scenario containing all favorite apps a user has and offers access to those, there is a need for a new Fiori page which shows the user current status of a specific domain or role he is interested in while aggregating and simplifying the information into one Fiori experience page.
Introducing SAP Fiori Overview Page (OVP) – a new interaction within SAP Fiori UX providing the big picture at a glance, and the details the user needs to take immediate action at a moment’s notice in a one-stop-shop page.
The OVP enables business users perform their daily tasks quickly and effectively by having all the information they need on a single page. It defers advanced or rarely used features to a secondary screen, making applications easier to learn and less error-prone.
Information is visualized on cards for multiple types of content in an attractive and efficient way. The user-friendly experience makes viewing data, filtering data and acting upon it simple, faster, and smarter.
The OVP is a data-driven Fiori application based on Smart Template technology as a UI framework for organizing large amounts of information. The cards would allow SAP and non-SAP vendors to embed their specific content into a dedicated SAP Fiori Overview Page.
It’s fully responsive and features collapsible “columns” of cards that can scale all the way from large screens and desktop down to tablet or phone screen sizes.
The OVP is available as a controlled release from Nov/2015 both on Premise and on HANA Cloud Platform.
