We are happy to announce a major release of SAP Fiori Cloud for S/4HANA. With over 6,000 apps, SAP Fiori Cloud will offer content covering business roles across 13 lines of business and 30+ industries. This marks a major milestone to ease the adoption of SAP Fiori for SAP S/4HANA via Cloud services.
This means if you are running SAP S/4HANA or SAP Business Suite on premises, you can keep your core business systems on premises, while easily and seamlessly accessing the UI layer from the Cloud. That makes it incredibly easy to innovate quickly – and release any of the apps whenever you want – without impacting your on-premises release cycles.
Let me summarize the news for your and explain with this diagram:
- Your SAP S/4HANA or SAP Business Suite back-end system stays on premises. You do not move any core business systems to the cloud – only the UI layer is served from the Cloud
- You don’t need to upgrade or patch your Fiori / Portal landscape (Dev, TEST, PROD,…) any more. SAP runs the Fiori apps and launchpad in SAP Cloud Platform for you.
- New functionality is available bi-weekly
- You can leverage any of the 6,000+ SAP Fiori apps or develop your own custom apps
- Leverage the best architecture for your company to ensure best security and performance (External Access Point or Internal Access Point)
- SAP provides a preview environment, enabling you to preview and test new functionalities two weeks in advance
