SAP Fiori Application Development

Business transformation

Business transformation can begin by improving your company’s software interface. SAP Fiori is one of the fundamental elements of SAP S4HANA solution and it is frequently chosen as a first step towards company’s business and digital transformation. Ability to carry out business operations remotely, user-friendly UX/UI interface, substitution to many complex applications with respect of permissions and authorizations – these are the main benefits of building own SAP Fiori applications.

Although SAP systems are very elaborate, their standard versions often lack functionalities to cover all the company’s needs. In such situations the solution is to create original applications using the SAP Fiori environment and the ABAP programming language. This provides the company with original custom tools that are finely tailored to its requirements. 

Features

The SAP Fiori environment is the new standard for modern user interfaces, and consists of a suite of applications that are:

Responsive
they can be used on any device: desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. You have access to your data in the field, on the road, and during meetings with clients
Simple
no programming knowledge is needed to work with SAP Fiori. The applications are designed to be used completely intuitively
Connected
all of the Fiori apps operate in one environment, which means that you can move freely between them. You can easily customize your screen to suit your needs, and find space for all necessary information
Role-based
you can assign entire application sets to individual roles in the company (analysts, sales, purchasing, etc.). This means specific data can only be accessed by specific people

How we work

Identifying needs
The first stage is to identify the needs of the company so that we can design applications to meet those needs. At Hicron we prepare several variants of interactive mockups for our clients, making it much easier for your employees to report which functionalities will facilitate their everyday work and which ones they see as redundant.
Best Practices
When writing software, we follow the best practices of Fiori programming. As a result, our applications are not only efficient and scalable but, most importantly, they do not interfere with the updating and developing of the SAP system or individual modules – even if they are all integrated.
Product design
For an application to improve everyday work, it must be designed with the user in mind. We make this principle a priority, taking the time to learn what your employees expect from the software and designing several variants of its appearance. In this way, we can focus on working on solutions that satisfy your needs from the very start.
Developed Methodologies
We have been active in the field of programming in the Fiori environment for years, as confirmed by the rich collection of our solutions gathered in the Hicron Labs section. We have created our own methodology of work, based on longterm thinking – our applications are efficient and easy to expand, so they can grow along with your company.

The key requirement of the client was the preparation of a solution that would give employees convenient access to SAP RE (Real Estate management). As employees often worked in the field, the solution had to be available on mobile devices. SAP Fiori turned out to be the best choice in this case.

The tool co-created by the Hicron team is a significant improvement in the circulation of accounting documents for our client – PKP S.A. PKP S.A. recorded significant time savings, thanks to the automation of a part of the process, almost immediately after the implementation of the solution in the company’s structure.

SAP Fiori – what are the main benefits?

SAP Fiori is a completely new quality of the business application.

Thanks to the friendly environment, SAP Fiori’s design improves the comfort and pace of employees’ work, and the data analysis becomes more transparent and possible in any place. Fiori users can easily use and navigate.

Security in SAP Fiori

In business, data has enormous value. We are aware of the importance of cyber security for our clients. SAP Fiori security effectively protects against unauthorized access to information about the company’s processes, thanks to single sign-on, role-based authentucatuib, and OData (Open Data Protocol).

You can apply three levels of SAP Fiori security protection:

  • Authentication only – this is the lowest level of protection, authenticating only during identity verification;
  • Integrity protection – protection level that detects all changes in data;
  • Privacy protection – this is the maximum level of protection that prevents data theft by encrypting it.

SAP Fiori Launchpad

Fiori is focused on user support and adapts to your needs. SAP Fiori users are divided into three categories, to which the Fiori launchpad has been adapted, providing them with quick access to the necessary functions:

  • end-user – Fiori launchpad gives you access to easy-to-navigate tiles, shortcuts, and searches for the necessary data. The home page can be designed according to the user’s needs, providing them with only the information they need to work.
  • administrators – through target mapping, administrators can configure SAP Fiori Launchpad.
  • developers – Fiori Launchpad includes support for ABAP programmers in the form of, for example, ready-made views that can be used for quick application implementation and development.

Fiori launchpad is accessed from the SAP Fiori Cloud, like other SAP Fiori resources.

Development of SAP Fiori application for our Clients

At Hicron, we realize that not only every industry but also every client has specific needs and faces unusual challenges. Thanks to the wide possibilities offered when designing Fiori applications, we can customize the solution to support the client’s business.

It is possible, among others thanks to SAP Fiori Elements which reduces front-end coding when creating SAP Fiori apps. Thus, it reduces the amount of code, speeds up the development process, and allows you to focus on business logic and user experience. It is a framework providing patterns and predefined floorplans that don’t need JavaScript UI coding.

However, Fiori design is possible using anyother technology, which can be selected according to the intended use.

Five core principles for SAP Fiori Design:

  • ROLE-BASED
  • DELIGHTFUL
  • COHERENT
  • SIMPLE
  • ADAPTIVE

SAP Fiori client gets exactly what it needs, eliminating redundant information and accelerating processes. SAP Business technology adjusts to the ambitious goals set by the client. It not only makes the ERP system a useful tool that provides measurable benefits but also improves the comfort of its use, by reflecting your work way
