Please let me know if my below understanding is correct.

What I understand is .... FIORI Apps are built on SAPUI5.

1) Are FIORI Apps a package provided by SAP. If yes then what kind of apps are they? ...for example, are they time sheets, any kind of reports, etc.

2) If they are a package provided by SAP then will my company have to pay to get them installed in our landscape?  meaning ..are they licensed ?

3) Once installed, will we be able to customize them as per our requirement? If yes, then will SAP UI5 knowledge be sufficient to carry out customizations?
