As Sr. UX-designer (external partner) I am getting more and more involved in the design of web application based on the Fiori standards for the Insurance Industry. As you might know, the insurance domain and processes (e.g. claim handling) can be quite complex.
I am familiar with the Fiori Guidelines (experience.sap.com/fiori-guidelines/), online documentation and demo’s, but I am still struggling with finding the right patterns for more complex data handling and deep navigation structures. The Fiori guidelines and Apps I have seen so far are focussed on presenting information (e.g. charts/orders) and simple forms.
Is anyone of you familiar with more complex application with complex business rules and processes? Or is there a way to get in touch with the team developing these Fiori Guidelines to talk about this subjects?
One other question: Are there any tools available to create low and high fidelity prototypes. I know there is a PPT- Prototype Kit, but are there any other tools available to create low or hight fidelity prototypes?
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
thank you for reaching out. Fiori evolves at a fast pace and we are constantly refining and adding controls, patterns and floor plans. To help you stay informed we invest a lot into documentation, samples and tools:
- We are currently working on a new release of the Fiori Design Guidelines that will reflect the improved features of SAP UI5 in the latest releases. We plan to release these guidelines to the public in Q2. Especially, patterns for more complex use cases were in the focus of our recent work driven by efforts like SAP Simple Finance (http://www.sap.com/solution/lob/finance/software/cloud-erp-finance-management/index.html). This includes enhanced input and filter controls, tables and also a number of new floor plans.
- Together with the new version of the guidelines we plan to release a prototyping kit for Axure reflecting the corresponding state of the guidelines.
- Further, we are working on the SAP UI5 Explored App, which forms part of the SAP UI5 Development Kit. I can only recommend this handy tool to explore and test the controls available in UI5 live and with code previews.
Please let me know if you have further questions on Fiori’s support for complex use cases. Please be aware that the capabilities vary depending on the release you are working with.
I am very pleased to hear that additional prototyping tools and enhanced guidelines for complex use cases will be available in the near future. The new release of the Fiori Design Guidelines sounds very promising. I think it will help our teams a lot during the design and development process.
We will look in more details on the design efforts for SAP Simple Finance to give us inspiration.
If there is any change to get a preview of the new release it would be very much appreciated. I am also very happy to contribute to enhance the guidelines and tooling if needed.
thank you for this positive feedback and the offer to contribute. Above a sneak preview of the guidelines. Details to follow. I will reach out to you by mail.
