White Paper: SAPUI5 – Next-Generation UI Technology for the Enterprise

Business process refinement is an ideal development strategy for any enterprise. It drives quicker adoption of best-in-class solutions like SAP S/4HANA over disparate and outdated legacy systems, especially when accompanied by SAP’s User Interface technology, SAP Fiori.

The SAP Fiori interface is built using the SAPUI5 (SAP User Interface for HTML5) framework, which is based on a lightweight programming language know as JavaScript for frontend UI development. It has the capability of providing a seamless user experience across devices with different form factors.

This white paper explores the SAPUI5 framework and a few of its smart components, along with advanced data visualization that can help businesses create more fluid user interfaces. It also briefly covers updates made to the SAPUI5 libraries on the SAP S/4HANA 1909 (on-premise/cloud) platform.
