Scale up SAP S 4HANA with SAP Fiori Configuration

Introduction to Fiori

For all SAP applications, SAP Fiori is the most standard design. To provide a consistent user experience across both on-premise and cloud solutions, SAP has been gradually extending the SAP Fiori experience to all SAP solutions.

The SAP Fiori Launchpad (FLP) serves as the platform from which SAP Fiori is used. It gives access to the SAP Fiori Apps and organizes the ones that are essential to the users. By deleting, rearranging, and adding SAP Fiori Apps, users can also customize their SAP Fiori Launchpad.

Relationship between SAP S/4HANA and Fiori

SAP Fiori gives business users access to SAP S/4HANA’s new business value.

SAP Fiori configuration provides new business value in the following areas:

  •  Innovative user experience
  • Integrated and Real-time operational analytics
  • To customize, modify, and expand SAP S/4HANA, users require SAP Fiori
  • As part of SAP S/4HANA, new business processes are being made available.
  • Machine learning and Intelligent automation, such as situation handling and some scenarios involving robotic process automation.

Why SAP Fiori Configuration is Necessary to Enhance SAP S/4HANA

In many SAP S/4HANA use cases, SAP Fiori apps are used to configure, adapt, and expand the SAP S/4HANA solution. Numerous business operations, embedded analytics, and general user experience components are covered by these innovative SAP Fiori apps. Most of these can only be done in SAP Fiori configuration, with a limited number of exceptions.

The customizations for the new business processes and the intelligent automation use cases included with SAP S/4HANA are the most recent ones, and they are only accessible via SAP Fiori configuration. Advanced Availability to Promise, central procurement, machine learning, group reporting, and situation handling are a few examples.
