  • Hi Tammy,

    thanks for this helpful blog.

    My understanding is that the vision of SAP is to have one central Fiori Launchpad on the SAP Cloud Platform for multiple SAP Systems.

    Is there also an on-premise Central Fiori Launchpad available or planned?

    Thanks in advance!

     

    • Hello – thank you for reading and commenting

      I think the central Fiori Launchpad (in the cloud) would be connected to the on premise systems

      To be certain, however, I recommend asking this as a question at answers.sap.com since I do not work for SAP.
