SAP Fiori Implementation Approach

Cost of SAP Fiori Implementation Dramatically Reduced

The traditional implementation approach in SAP Fiori is expensive.

SAP Customers incurred high up front cost due to the implementation approach.

Using the new SAP Fiori implementation, where you select the SAP Fiori application from the extensive content library, then turn it on so the end user can experience it first, well before you spend money on development, you dramatically reduce your implementation cost.  This is one of the central design principles of using the SAP Fiori application library, let the user experience the SAP Fiori application before making changes.

Customization and Extensibility

SAP Fiori Apps Can Be Customized and Enhanced :

  • You have to make smart choices about what and whether you want to customize:
    • Are you planning on implementing Best Practices from one of the various SAP Model Companies?  For example, the SAP Model Company for Automotive*.
    • Do your existing customizations and enhancements represent a major competitive advantage?

The answer to these two questions will play a key role in determining your approach to customizations.  In the first case, probably best to start anew.  In the second case, it gets more complicated, especially down the road when you want to upgrade. 

What is the SAP Model Company for Automotive?

The SAP Model Company for Automotive is a pre-configured, ready-to-run, automotive reference model solution that covers the following business process scenarios:

  • Procure-to-Pay
  • Plan-to-Product
  • Order-to-Cash
  • Extended Warehouse Processing

It comes with industry specific relevant business content, including templates, accelerators and enablement services.  This helps to reduce project risk and cost.
