Unit 1: SAP's UX Strategy

- In accordance with SAP's UX strategy, SAP GUI is not considered a key UI technology
for SAP's developers to build completely new applications. For this, SAP recommends

● For a coherent user experience across multiple technologies and frameworks, UI
integration is key. It starts with offering the user one consolidated entry point using a shell
and raises the need for consistent UI services:
- SAP Fiori launchpad
■ Designed according to the simple and intuitive SAP Fiori user experience.
- SAP Business Client, which offers:
■ A single point-of-entry to SAP business applications for desktop users.
■ Harmonized access to SAP Fiori, FPM/WDA, and SAP GUI for Windows applications,
and the standard desktop client for the SAP Business Suite.
■ Integration of SAP Fiori user experience: SAP Fiori launchpad as a start page; launch
SAP GUI transactions using embedded SAP GUI for Windows.
- SAP Portal, which offers:
■ Solutions for on-premise and cloud-based UI integration.
● SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services
- SAP Cloud Platform mobile service for development and operations is an open, secure,
full-spectrum, enterprise-grade on-demand mobile app development solution.
- The SAP Mobile Platform SDK simplifies the development of cross-platform apps with
powerful enterprise capabilities (for example, offline data synchronization, cross-
platform push notifications, connectivity for SAP and third party back-end systems,
and SDKs supporting native and hybrid mobile apps on iOS, Android and Windows).
