SAP Fiori is a collection of apps that represent the new SAP user experience paradigm. These apps speak a consistent design language and make use of a common technical infrastructure. By blurring traditional computing boundaries and by using interactive and attractive UI elements, they provide a consistent end-to-end user experience and can be used across all device types without creating additional implementation effort.

Organized by user role, the SAP Fiori launchpad is the central entry hub to all Fiori apps, where users access apps via SAP Fiori active tiles. Within the launchpad are services for navigation, personalization, single sign-on, and search. The launchpad and the tiles are flexible and can be adapted to your needs.

The Fiori apps focus on the most critical and common activities and are designed around how people work:

  • Role-based: Fiori apps decompose complex applications into a task-based experience with one central entry point for each user.

  • Responsive: Fiori apps adapt to all sizes, devices, versions, and channels to provide a common user experience across all channels.

  • Simple: Fiori apps follow the 1-1-3 experience (1 user, 1 scenario, 3 screens). They know and provide the right context and meaningful data integration.

  • Coherent: user experience with apps that speak the same design language. This implies coherence for common activities as well as coherence for your brand.

  • Instant value: with a low barrier to adoption, enabling customers to adapt and users to personalize.

All UIs are built using state-of-the-art technology such as HTML5 and SAP UI5 mobile. Fiori apps allow you to access the most recent version of your back-end data via OData services. Through previously defined roles and authorizations you can specify which apps and which data a user is allowed to access.
