SAP Fiori is not a solution for a business process but a solution for a more user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI). SAP Fiori is an update to the SAP user interface where the focus is no longer on huge amounts of functionality but rather a comfortable user experience.
Each SAP Fiori application is built around the user, rather than the function. As a result, the screens are very simple and uncluttered. A key goal of any SAP Fiori application is to ensure that a user can complete a task with as few clicks as possible.
In the old SAP GUI, transactions and transaction codes are required, in SAP Fiori the transactions are replaced by and embedded in tiles. SAP Fiori tiles are shown based on the user’s role.
