Introduced in 2013 as a collection of apps, SAP Fiori has evolved into the new user experience (UX) for SAP software and now includes design guidelines and development resources. This modern UX reflects a broader paradigm shift, moving from a focus on features and functions to users and their experience.
This course is all about taking those SAP Fiori design guidelines and development resources and showing you how to apply them to your own unique business needs. Or, put another way, building your own SAP Fiori app that’s just as user-friendly as the hundreds SAP has built directly.
The previous version of this course was held in 2015. This new course now includes all new content focused on the latest UX topics and tools such as SAP Fiori 2.0, SAP S/4HANA, SAP Splash, Build, and more. If you took the course in 2015, this edition is the next step in learning how to build SAP Fiori apps even better. If you did not take the 2015 course, this course is just as applicable. It is a self-contained, end-to-end, hands-on learning experience on how to build your own SAP Fiori app.
The goal of this course is to walk you through the guidelines, tools, and best practices for designing, developing, and deploying your very own SAP Fiori app. Included are two challenges, a “design challenge” and a “develop challenge”, where you can submit your work, receive peer feedback, and have the chance to win an Apple iPad Pro!
This course will use various SAP cloud products including SAP Web IDE, SAP Splash, Build, and SAP Fiori, demo cloud edition. All of these tools are available via SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP)* and are free of charge. No installation is required. We will provide instructions for you to get set up with each tool, and this will be sufficient for the scope and duration of the course.
Please note: You are welcome to participate in this course without “going hands-on” with these free cloud tools; however, by contributing practically, you will be able to earn more points and will of course gain a fuller understanding of the scenarios covered.
For further learning, we recommend that you check out the SAP Leonardo learning journey.
We hope you are excited for the course. We know we are!
