Now available: SAP Best Practices for UX in S/4HANA

Release of SAP Best Pracitces for UX in S/4HANA – Deploy the user experience of your choice

Followed by the release of SAP S/4HANA and SAP Activate for S/4HANA, we are now excited to announce the availability of the first version of SAP Best Practices for user experience in S/4HANA ready to download free of charge from the SAP Service Marketplace:

As announced, SAP S/4HANA is designed with the most modern, role-based user experience called SAP Fiori. It gives users a personalized, responsive, and simple UX across all tasks and devices. With S/4HANA, it is more important to look at how people work and what is needed to help users get their job done, rather than rewriting existing transactions with a new UI technology.

SAP Best Practices are a key pillar of SAP Activate methodology, which is the new innovation adoption framework for a faster deployment of SAP S/4HANA.

SAP Best Practices for S/4HANA Portfolio Overview

The SAP Best Practices for UX have been designed to support customers to implement all available UI technologies relevant for S/4 HANA on premise which must be configured and to make them available via one single access point, the Fiori Launchpad. The best practices also provide guidelines how to configure standard SAP GUIs, Web Dynpro applications or customized transactions using SAP Screen Personas to achieve a harmonized Fiori-inspired user experience. After a system conversion into a S/4HANA system this package allows a simpler configuration, using automated configuration, as far as possible, to support an agile adoption of continuous innovation all the way up to go-live.
