Review: SAP Fiori Launchpad: Development And Extensibility

Beginning in 2013, users of the SAP Business Suite and S/4 Hana saw more and more handy SAP Fiori apps pop onto their devices. As the number of active SAP Fiori apps grew, so did the need for a central portal that could host and integrate all of an organization's apps: enter SAP Fiori launchpad. SAP Press’ latest book shares how to use and customize SAP Fiori launchpad to deliver apps to users.

What will you learn?

SAP Fiori Launchpad: Development and Extensibility begins with a look at SAP Fiori launchpad, the entry point to SAP Fiori applications. This book provides a robust look at the architecture and capabilities of the launchpad, and teaches you how to extend it to meet your and your users’ needs.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, like integrating apps and setting up navigation, take a deeper dive into the client-side services and learn to configure bookmarking and personalization services. But that isn’t all—after all, users need a whole host of tools available to them. As a developer, it’s your job to deliver. Discover how to customize SAP Fiori launchpad with APIs, plugins, and custom tiles.

As a programming book, the biggest benefit it provides is the use of demo applications, so you can get hands-on experience.  Because reading about developing is one thing; actually doing the development is another.

Other highlights include application and navigation services.

Who is this book for?

This book is perfect for developers working with SAP, specifically those who are developing apps for S/4 Hana and are or will be in the daily SAP Fiori trenches. Those who are unfamiliar with SAP and only know some of the basics of SAPUI5 and this user interface will need to brush up on their knowledge first (we recommend SAP Press’ books on SAPUI5 and SAP Fiori). But once you know the basics you’ll find great benefit in this book as it takes you step by step through SAP Fiori launchpad.

The author of this book is SAP Mentor Steve Guo. A certified Gold trainer and author of three SAP training courses for SAP Fiori, Guo combines that information with nearly 10 years of SAP experience. The result is a 304-page read that any developer will want to consult when working with SAP Fiori.
