SAP Fiori

Overview

SAP Fiori is the design language that enables user experiences in enterprise applications. At the time of SAPPHIRE 2013, the first SAP Fiori apps were released for managers and employees with request and approval functions. Since then, the number of apps has grown massively. With the 2016 release of SAP S/4HANA, SAP Fiori 2.0 was introduced. Today, SAP Fiori 3 represents the current target design, which further develops the SAP Fiori design language for all SAP products to fully support the Intelligent Suite.

In a nutshell, SAP Fiori defines a simple and role-based user experience (UX) that simplifies the way people work with SAP products.

The underlying technology, which is required for the design language, is SAPUI5 as UI technology.
