I Need SAP Fiori Training Now!

SAP software. SAP Education offers the training you need to stay on
the cutting edge of the new SAP user experience.
By Glen Hostetler | Instructor, SAP Education
The way people interact with applications, whether for work or play, has changed
dramatically. When was the last time you didn’t have your smartphone or tablet
within arm’s reach? Though I spend much of my time as an SAP instructor in
class, if I’m not delivering a lecture, odds are my phone is probably in my hand or
my pocket and my tablet is propped up right next to my laptop with notes about all
the items I’m going to research later in the day.
Even in the evening you can bet my phone will be within arm’s reach, more than
likely in my hand, probably tweeting out some random factoid that no one in their
right mind would ever need to know. Because it’s there and easy to use, I find
myself making sure my expenses are entered, via an app on my phone.
Certainly, I am not the only person who has the occasional thought of work when
my laptop is off; being able to take care of things on my mobile device is much
easier than going through the process of gaining access to the backend system
with my laptop. Just the idea that applications are available from my mobile
device makes it much more likely that I won’t procrastinate until the next day. Or
more likely just forget about it altogether because, let’s face it, the old brain isn’t
functioning as it did in my mid-20s with no kids yelling “DAD! DAD!” every 10
minutes.

Redefining the user experience with SAP Fiori
One reason we’re all keeping our mobile devices so close at hand is the speed
and simplicity of the applications on mobile devices. These days, users expect
applications that are easy to use with a clean, uncomplicated layout. By expanding this across multiple types of devices, you reduce the ramp up time required to
become familiar with new application front ends.
Get ahead of the curve!
The courses described here
will help you understand the
new SAP User Experience
(UX) paradigm, and give you
the knowledge to implement
changes in your own
environment.

Start by learning about SAP
Fiori from SAP Education!

July 2014

Keeping with this trend, SAP is redefining the SAP user experience to simplify and
improve the ramp-up period for working with SAP as a front end user. A
significant part of this redefinition is SAP Fiori, a series of simplified applications
designed to provide a consistent look and feel across devices, whether a
smartphone, tablet, or PC.
The people who familiarize themselves with the concepts at the core of this new
user experience will get a leg up on developing their own customized design.
Plus, if you’re the first one to know the full capabilities, you’ll be able to say
something like “Yes, we can make an application show up in fuchsia on top of a
chartreuse background” (although the more appropriate response would be, “Why
in the world would anyone want to do that?”).
