    we are developing several centrally used applications using FPM/FBI. We hardly find any information on these tools in the roadmaps of SAP.

    Can you tell us what the furure of FPM and FPMFBI is, or has time come to leave these behind?

    Thanks a lot.

    • Hello Kris,

      The SAP UI technologies (incl. WDA and FPM) have dedicated rollout channels for quite some time now.

      Please have a look at the SAP User Interface Technologies road map to find out information about the Floorplan Manager for WDA (FPM) and other UI technologies.

      For that, go to https://www.sap.com/products/roadmaps/finder-all.html and search for SAP User Interface Technologies.

      Kind regards,

  • Hi Carine

    I have a question about slide 15.

    Among the four columns, we have listed as recent innovations, or innovations to come, amongst others:

    • Dynamic Programming: CREATE DATA, CREATE OBJECT, CALL METHOD, ASSIGN
    • Conversion exit ALPHA for customer-defined domains
    • Dynamic ABAP SQL
    • Support for custom-developed ATC checks.

    I’m wondering if I’m misunderstanding as these have been available for quite a few years, I think.

    • Hi Matthew,

      Yes, you’re right that these features are already available in the ABAP Platform - but only in on-premise releases, not on SAP Cloud Platform.

      Slide 15 is about recent and planned ABAP Platform capabilities for the SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment. This is the reason why they are mentioned there. And it's also important to mention that these features are provided in a cloud-enabled version.

      I hope this answers your question.

      Kind regards,
      Carine
