Leveraging SAPUI5 for Building Dashboard like Apps | Entry for UI5 Top 5 Competition
After the announcement on the blog https://blogs.sap.com/2017/12/22/new-search-for-a-new-ui5-top-5-2018/ inviting design for Top SAPUI5 Applications; we decided to leverage SAPUI5 to build a custom application in SAPUI5 not based on any template; but rather our own dashboard like application which collates information from disparate sources.
We all usually see applications in the standard Master-Detail or Full Screen templates which are very common in the SAPUI5 and Fiori scheme of things.
We decided to digress from the standard templates and tried to come up with our own Dashboard like Apps which are not only interesting and intuitive; but also offer a great integrating platform for data from different sources and styles.
We have made this app called 360 Degree Dashboard which captures data from different sources and gives an analytical view to the end user. The user can also filter data dynamically as per the filters.
We have also integrated third party libraries such as Mcharts, Google Maps etc. for our application. Also, we have built an interesting Poll feature in our app.
Thus, We have utilized the strong SAPUI5 framework to build this intuitive application and deployed it on SAP Cloud Platform; and created a fiori site for its access. You can access the site using the URL for those who want to see it live:
Here are a few screenshots from the application:
