The list of Fiori’s positive attributes is long. Users are familiar with the use of mobile devices and therefore quick solutions that significantly increase process efficiency are available through apps provided by SAP or ones developed internally. Through optimized user interfaces reductions in input errors and misunderstandings in comparison with the complex dialogues in the standard SAP GUI can be achieved. The business case pays off in this situation very quickly as the move to SAP Fiori for companies using SAP does not come with much expense.

Most current SAP systems already have all the requirements necessary to implement SAP Fiori. Access to the ERP system takes place via the SAP Gateway. This is the frontend server which functions as a type of middleware between the Fiori app and the ERP system. Web enquiries from the apps are converted into “SAP language” and data is exchanged with the ERP system. Further requirements are
SAP Gateway can be operated as a separate system but also installed as part of an ERP system. The choice of the most optimal Gateway deployment option is dependent on the specific project.
