Eursap’s Tip of the Week: What are the 3 different types of Fiori apps which are available?
SAP Fiori apps are useful cutting-edge tools to drive user experience into the future. But what are the different types of Fiori apps which are available?
There are three different types of SAP Fiori apps:
1. Transactional apps – these apps are recognisable from the classic ABAP transactions found in the SAP GUI. They are available for SAP S/4HANA as well as for SAP ERP 6.0 on any database. An example of a sales transactional app is “Change Sales Orders”, as below, which is a web representation of the classic SAP GUI transaction VA02.
2. Analytical apps – these apps have embedded analytical capabilities, utilising the power of the SAP HANA database. The aim of analytical apps is to provide business insights using complex algorithms at speed. They are available for SAP S/4HANA and SAP ERP 6.0 Business Suite on HANA. An example of an analytical app is “Sales Order Fulfilment”, which can be seen below.
3. Factsheet apps – these apps use the enterprise search capabilities of the SAP HANA database to provide search results in specific contexts. They are available for SAP S/4HANA and SAP ERP 6.0 Business Suite on HANA. Factsheet apps, whilst being apps in their own right, are normally navigated to from another app – either a transactional app or an analytical app. This is because their purpose is to provide targeted information based upon the activities carried out in previous apps or searches. An example of a factsheet app is below.
