SAP Fiori Elements rethought to simplify reporting

Discovery Inc., long-time SAP customers, is well aware of the feature set of ALV, which has been a staple of ABAP based reporting for more than 20 years. However, bringing these reports into modern web applications with Fiori presents considerable challenges.

SAP’s suggested approach, Fiori Elements, is able to deliver the expected features of traditional ALV in a Fiori package, but development using this approach is highly complex and relies on new technology such as Hana CDS views and annotated oData services, which are unfamiliar to the vast majority of ABAP developers.

In this presentation, see how Discovery outlines their own approach to this problem, using ABAP objects and Neptune Software to deliver the features of ALV and Fiori Elements.

Presenting is Timothy Hughes, Senior Director SAP Technology and Architecture at Discovery Inc. and Daniel Rempe, Co-Founders at UpperTech Consulting Group LLC
