SAP Fiori analytical apps provide insight into the real-time operations of your business by collecting and displaying KPIs directly in your browser. To do this, the analytical apps combine the data and analytical power of SAP HANA with the integration and interface components of SAP Business Suite. Before you can use SAP Fiori analytical apps, you must set up and configure the required system landscape, including the front end as well as the back end.

The installation and configuration tasks differ according to the type of app that you want to use:

  • SAP Smart Business apps

    SAP Smart Business apps use a KPI framework that includes the KPI Modeler tool as its basic component. By using the KPI Modeler, you can adapt the predefined KPIs according to your requirements. All KPIs are displayed in tiles on the SAP Fiori launchpad. A generic drill-down application included in the KPI Modeler component provides access to detail views for each KPI tile

  • Non SAP Smart Business apps

    Non SAP Smart Business apps use an app-specific framework that is optimized for each app. The framework as well as the predefined KPIs are included in the app-specific content. All KPIs are displayed in tiles on the SAP Fiori launchpad.
