Q&A

Q: Can you please differentiate between Fiori apps made using UI5 and Fiori apps by Analytics Designer?

A: With UI5 you need to create your components like table, chart etc. all from scratch. With analytics designer we provide you different set of components and script APIs to enable you to do a “low-code” development. UI5 development is a kind of “high-code” development.

Q: How is Analytics Designer different from Application Designer?

A: Analytic designer is the capability in SAC. Analytic applications are the artifacts created by analytic designer.

Q: Does Analytics designer app can be seen on mobile? If yes, how as we use sap.ui.tables?

A: Analytic application created by SAC analytics designer can be consumed by SAC Mobile iOS app, and can also be consumed in safari browser on iPad
