Last year, we introduced a video series in which the SAP Fiori elements development team talked about the product and what each page type does. This was the Getting Started with SAP Fiori Elements Video Series Now, we have asked some developers who use SAP Fiori elements to demo their applications, discuss how it helped them, and share some usage tips. The new series is about Using SAP Fiori elements.
The purpose of these videos is to expose you to some different ways that people use SAP Fiori elements so you can see examples of different page types, how people customize them, and some ways to use the product. Many of the apps might look similar at first glance. This is intentional. Since SAP Fiori elements enforces UX consistency, we want the apps you build to look similar (to each other and to the ones that SAP Ships with SAP S/4HANA), even if they are created by different development teams around the world.
By providing standard page types to build the most common SAP Fiori apps, along with logic for searching, filtering, sorting, navigation, and editing, developers can significantly reduce the amount of code they need to write for the user interface. Not only does this save time and money on application development and maintenance, it reduces the skills required to create robust enterprise applications. In some cases, if you do not want to make significant changes to the standard templates, you may not need to write any code at all.
Planned videos in the Using SAP Fiori elements series:
- Building an Innovative App for SAP S/4HANA Procurement
- Creating a Mass Update App for SAP S/4HANA
- Making Mass Changes to Central Purchase Contracts
- Building a Project Financial Controller Overview
- Helping Citizens Get Home During COVID-19
- Extending SAP Fiori elements Applications
- Matching COVID-19 Patients with Beds
- And more… What would you like to see?
If there is something you would like to see in terms of SAP Fiori elements usage, or if you want to show what you are doing with SAP Fiori elements, please let me know and we will do our best to make it happen.
