Course Summary

People have become used to the speed and simplicity of consumer apps. Business users expect the same simplicity from their enterprise software. SAP Fiori gives this to them.

SAP Fiori is the user experience (UX) for SAP software. By applying modern design principles, it has completely reinvented the UX and has grown to a complete design system. Personalized and role-based, SAP Fiori provides optimal usability on multiple devices, allowing employees to get more done with fewer clicks and less training.

In this course, you’ll learn what SAP Fiori is, with examples from SAP products. The course shows you what the SAP Fiori design system is and how it helps provide a consistent, high quality UX for all our products. It’ll teach you how to design and develop your own intuitive applications, with demos of the SAP development tools showing just how easy it is. If you’re more interested in seeing how to adapt and extend standard SAP applications, this is covered too. Finally, you’ll see how to get the SAP Fiori launchpad up and running, and how to efficiently support end users, with the focus on SAP S/4HANA.
