Review: SAP Build – Prototyping and Design

Design thinking is gaining traction in the SAP world; it pays to design programs with the end user in mind. SAP’s prototyping tool, SAP Build, was just given the SAP Press treatment.

What will you learn?

Fresh off the heels of an E-Bite on the design thinking methodology in SAP, SAP Build: Prototyping and Design is the first full-length foray into prototyping by SAP Press. See how to develop SAP Fiori and SAPUI5 applications that aren’t just pretty renderings, but detailed and interactive samples, with the help of the SAP Build editor.

Then discover how to share these mockups with users, gathering feedback that you can incorporate in future versions. After all, how can you expect to delight users if you haven’t consulted them in the first place?

Repeat these steps with your new user requests in mind, and soon you’ll find yourself ready to export the prototype into the SAP Web IDE to jumpstart app development. After some careful coding, you’ll end up with a fully-functional application that you can be proud of, and one that users will be proud to use.

Other highlights include:

  • High-fidelity and low-fidelity prototyping
  • Interactive elements
  • User feedback studies
  • SAP Cloud Platform
  • SAP Fiori
  • SAPUI5

Who is this book for?

Certainly, those who are doing the actual design of SAP Fiori and SAPUI5 apps will like what they read here—beyond being a book focused solely on the SAP Build tool they’re using, readers might find some clarity as to why decision makers keep coming back with suggested changes. And those on the business side of things, where the data is coming from, play a huge role too, as they are the ones who requested an app development in the first place. They’ll like reading up on how to make the most of user feedback.

As we mentioned above, this is the first book that SAP Press has released on prototyping, and they went big. The book was authored by two senior solution engineers for SAP Cloud Platform and SAP’s digital experience solutions (including SAP Build), Dwayne DeSylvia and Jonathan Yagos. At 538 pages, these two authors have filled the book with practical examples and insider tips. It’s a must-have for those working in the application development space.

You can find the book on the SAP Press website and read a sample chapter by clicking on the “Browse the Book” button beneath the book’s cover.
