With the 00’s still showing multiple tracks for UI development (SAP GUI, Webdynpro, BSP’s, SAP Netweaver Business client), SAP introduced SAP Fiori in 2013.
It appears SAP Fiori is here to stay, and I must admit I am glad. SAP has been criticized for their lack of attention to user interfaces. This resulted in gluing, patching and scripting their way towards the light. This in turn resulted in unstable user interfaces and complex browserversion compatibility.
Long story short, from every perspective, I am happy that SAP Fiori is here to stay. Now that the dust around SAP Fiori is settled, SAP launched a new version last year, SAP Fiori 2.0.
Unlike the new version number suggests, SAP Fiori 2.0 is not a software version with an exact launch date, it should be more considered ‘a new era’ of Fiori, where it matures to a more completed product.
So what are the key take-aways for this new era of Fiori?
