What is SAP Fiori?

Definition of SAP Fiori

SAP Fiori stands for user experience (UX) that complements and replaces the SAP GUI of SAP. Fiori is a modern application that offers a user experience that you can customize across all business units, tasks and devices. SAP has designed customer input and the ease of use of SAP Fiori UX in mind.

UX (User Experience) covers the practical, experiential, meaningful and valuable aspects of human-device interaction. UX provides mobile deployment so users can work without needing to access a computer. In other words, SAP Fiori offers a mobile application experience with seamless movements and controls. The screens are simple, customizable and modern design. It doesn't have the unnecessary tabs and fields that the old UX had.

What Is SAP Fiori 2.0?

SAP Fiori 2.0 was released as an update to Fiori in October 2016, adding UX functionalities that were missing from the initial release. (For example, advanced navigation options, proactive system notifications.) Also released as the final evolution for SAP HANA and S/4 HANA, this version also offers a visual design that adapts Fiori UIs to corporate identities.
