With the new shell header bar, navigation is simplified and aligned to be best fit for all SAP products paving the way towards a consistent User Experience. How the latter might look like is shown in the example featuring SAP S/4HANA Predicted Delivery Delay and Ariba Network. Read more about SAP Fiori 3 here.
