Point of View: Integrating SAP FIORI/UI5 apps with Successfactors

The introduction of SAPUI5 technologies changed the multiple cloud services options for customers to choose from when trying to determine a path forward for Self-Services.

With each wave of Fiori apps that SAP releases, SAP is getting closer to filling in all the gaps that have existed for using Fiori as a full-featured platform for Self-Services. Prior to these latest waves, Fiori had existed in a niche where it was a very nice application set for what it did, but given its holes, it was hard to commit fully to it for HCM. However, with the latest wave of apps, as well as SAP’s release of new Overview pages to go along with the Fiori Launchpad, SAP is showing its commitment to support any customers that might want to use Fiori as the foundation for end users’ online interaction with HCM.

With that, we see that SAP HCM is already making a shift to Success Factors (SFSF) to manage most of the data on the Cloud servers.

Success Factors is no doubt the leader in HCM cloud solution providing great UI aspects but then HR Renewal can be a an alternative to a Cloud-based solution and a significant step forward from the traditional UI client content available through the SAP GUI, Net weaver Business Client, or Enterprise Portal. It is surely a big interest for those  organization who currently focused on continuing with an On Premise approach in terms of user experience.

On top comes the Fiori which is going to be the new UX for SAP solutions in the next generation.

      How does Role Based Permissions work between the SAP tiles and the SuccessFactors tiles on the Fiori home page?  I believe the roles are diff between the two 'companies'.
