Fiori is role based but isn't SAP Implementation used to cover it too ?
I understand Fiori is role based and apps can be created per role. But in an SAP Implementation there has always been a user role mapping, for example which users will have access to which transaction etc. How is Fiori different ?
I have configured few apps myself and is the difference only limited to screens a user could see and access or is there a bigger difference ?

We say that the regular SAPGUI applications are transaction based and our Fiori apps are role based because here in fiori, users see only the required information and perform only those steps which are required for their role in contrast to SAPGUI transaction where the user is presented with a lot of fields and actions.
We use 'role' (PFCG) to restrict the access in SAPGUI but in Fiori, we use 'role' as a real world role of the user and present him the information view which he can relate to.
*While implementing Fiori apps, we also use 'roles'(PFCG) to give access the particular app
