Impact of Fiori on Cloud Application Studio SDK

Hi Everyone,

SAP had recently announced their strategic move towards SAP Fiori User Interface/User Experience for all their applications including SaaS offerings - Business ByDesign and Cloud for Customer (C4C). This is great news as the user experience is this new UI is excellent! It is simple, easy-to-use, responsive and will have bigger impact in terms of user-adoption of SAP solutions.

As of May'2015, SAP released Fiori simple/responsive UI for Cloud for Customer(C4C). It seems like ByD has also started it's journey in the same direction - at least for it's CRM functionality within ByD. You may refer to your own tenant's URL ending with HTML5/newclient.html:



Note: C4C Fiori UI is functional but ByD is not - development may be in-progress?

My question is how does Fiori UI impact the custom application development process - especially related to using or not using the Cloud Application Studio (SDK)? For instance, if we want to add a new custom UI views/elements for a customer-specific requirement, how will this be realized with Fiori UI?

Will we use another SDK instead of Cloud Application Studio?

Will it be HANA Cloud Platform (HCP) WebIDE development?

Will it combination of Studio SDK with HCP WebIDE?

Is it something else?

Perhaps, we can also hear from folks at SAP.

Hi Mirza,

yes, absolutey. SAP's Cloud Applications Studio (SDK) can be used to extend C4C. The outcome of these extension projects is always and immediately a ready-to-run app in SL, HTML5 and also the new responsive FIORI-based HTML5. Please sign-up for SAP's Cloud Solution Partner program ("in app extensions") to realize such C4C projects.

If you have further questions please also refer to the following web session:
