What’s new in SAP: SAP Fiori for iOS and SAP Fiori 2.0
SAP has taken another step towards improving the user experience.
It was possible thanks to two revolutions in responsive Fiori applications and cooperation with Apple, a global pioneer in UX. These corporations have been working together since May 2016.
SAP Fiori for iOS
The most important result of this cooperation was providing Fiori mobile applications for the iOS platform. This was intended to revolutionize the corporate user experience.
The companies want to achieve it by combining the best features of the SAP HANA platform and the power of native iOS applications. Thanks to the collaboration, applications for business will adapt to the specific character of Apple devices.
The effect is exceptional speed. Another benefit is a combination of SAP experience in a rationalization of business processes with the technical capabilities of Apple devices, such as GPS and Bluetooth, and trouble-free access to those functionalities. This is a novelty because versions for other devices require access to the application from browser level.
This improvement makes SAP Fiori more attractive for iOS developers who will be able to program applications in iOS native language, namely Swift.
SAP HANA Cloud Platform SDK for iOS contains a library of native iOS components, provides templates to build consistent user experience across all applications and provides a design for SAP Fiori on iOS. This translates directly into costs of building and utilizing solutions through enhancing productivity and quality of data, savings on training, reducing the volume of errors and necessary changes.
It also boosts builds user satisfaction and loyalty and improves relationships between IT and business. In turn, Fiori developers will be able to move smoothly on iOS which ensures a much bigger efficiency. Simplified development will also increase the circulation of Fiori solutions for mobile devices.
SAP Fiori 2.0
The second version of the mobile SAP Fiori applications is an evolutionary step forward in the development of responsive applications in this standard. The prestigious Red Dot Design Award is proof of its modern, high-quality design.
There are no major changes from the programming viewpoint – SAP Fiori 2.0 introduces some changes in the appearance of the interface, including the introduction of new types of views. The result is prompt, direct access to relevant information and applications, notifications enabling rapid response, which translates into an increase in user satisfaction.
Such changes are further evidence that the direction and development of SAP keep up with the latest trends. In this case, it is improving and simplifying the user experience.
