SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP S/4HANA deliver the SAP Fiori user experience (UX) at scale. SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP S/4HANA change how you work, by combining insights via real-time embedded analytics with transactional actions. They also share a code line that enables you to adapt your solution to meet your business needs in a fast and flexible way.
The SAP Fiori UX is the face of SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP S/4HANA business innovations to your business users. When planning your transition to SAP S/4HANA Cloud or SAP S/4HANA, you need to know how to make the most of this new UX. You’ll also need to know how you can adapt the SAP Fiori UX to your specific needs, whether you’re a business user, a business process expert, or a developer.
In this openSAP course you will get deep insights on how SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP S/4HANA can be extended to realize their full potential. You will also learn how to accelerate the extensibility capabilities for your business in a cloud-like lifecycle. In Week 1 we will focus on fundamentals of UX in SAP S/4HANA, including a quick overview of SAP Fiori launchpad features and content, UX roles you will need in your project, Discover/Design/Deliver lifecycle and mindsets to successfully guide UX extensions on your project, and an overview of the main SAP S/4HANA UX extensibility types. In Week 2 we’ll introduce simple “no developer required” ways to adapt the SAP Fiori launchpad, SAP Fiori apps, and classic user interfaces. We’ll focus particularly on using in-app extensibility. Think of these as SAP Fiori apps that let you adapt other SAP Fiori apps. We will continue with advanced extensions in Week 3, in which you will learn how to rapidly create your own SAP Fiori apps using SAP Fiori elements and how to use the side-by-side extensibility and classic extensibility approaches. In Week 4 you will gain an appreciation for the main embedded analytics types, including Smart Business KPIs, interactive drilldowns using Analysis Path Framework, the Query Designer, and the View Browser.

If your primary interest in taking this course is getting an overview of the SAP Fiori user experience in SAP S/4HANA Cloud or SAP S/4HANA and understanding how they can be extended, you do not need access to a development system. However, we realize that many of you will be interested in trying out some of the extensions presented based on the instructions in the course exercises. For this, you can use an SAP S/4HANA 1610 trial system as documented in this blog.
The software, systems, and tools are provided free of charge; however, you’ll need to pay cloud storage costs to hold your trial.
If you want to try out SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you can also access a 14-day trial version.
