Key Concept

SAP Fiori for SAP solutions for GRC is a product that allows you to personalize and simplify the user experience (UX) for your SAP GRC applications. SAP Fiori offers a role-based, consumer-level user experience across different functional tasks and devices, including mobile devices.

SAP Fiori provides a user-friendly and intuitive interface to access some capabilities of the SAP GRC products—SAP Access Control, SAP Risk Management, and SAP Process Control. This is in line with SAP’s strategy for improving the user experience especially in this digital age with the use of mobile devices on the increase.

The SAP Fiori launchpad is the basis of all SAP Fiori user interfaces (UIs), and it provides fundamental functions for SAP Fiori apps such as logon, surface sizing, navigation between apps, and role-based app catalogs. End users access the SAP Fiori apps from the SAP Fiori launchpad. The specific UIs for the apps are delivered as SAP GRC application-specific add-on products that must be additionally installed on the front-end server.
