SAP Solution Manager provides various tools and methods for implementing and maintaining both SAP and customer solutions. The Solution Documentation model is based on a hierarchical structure, which uses a solution as the single, central point of access for all Solution Documentation content.
The process of documenting applications (and/or business processes) is a very important issue for organizations that use IT solutions for providing their business core services. It is also necessary during the Fiori apps implementation. SolDoc could be a good tool to store final documentation as a result of the work of several functional consultants.
With Fiori Tracker the only thing you have to do is to put a link to the tab you are interested in (f. e. applications, roles, business catalogs).
Sounds like a fairy tale?
It does, but the funny fact is that it’s at your fingertips!
By clicking this stored link you can proceed to the right documentation.
There is the same solution for business catalogs and roles.
Hope you fell in love with our solution for storing documentation in the SolDoc! If you want to implement it in your company – just let us know!
With the Most frequently used apps function of the Fiori Tracker, SAP S/4 HANA implementation, that project manager is getting, is a perfect overview of how the UAT is progressing.
Please, take a look at the screenshot of this function:
Note the columns with the application start count:
In total (“Total”)
For last calendar week (“Last calendar week”)
For the current day (“Today”)
With a large number of the applications to be tested, the information, on whether any user has run the app, gives a good indicator of how the testing is progressing.
The function has a filleting for:
So, it is a valuable source of information for every manager to see, what is the activity for different functional areas. The statistic can be generated per business line and used for status meetings on test progress. It also gives a glance at how performing the tests team members are occupied at the time.
The records for each run are collected as long, as the plugin is enabled. Also, all other statistic analyses can be performed. The statistics can also take under the consideration the data from other aspects covered with the Fiori Tracker like:
We have designed Fiori Tracker components to enable flexible installation options. Depending on your SAP landscape setup and your organization constraints, you can deploy Fiori Tracker in the way that suits your project the best. The recommended Fiori Tracker architecture is shown below:
The tool can also be set to work directly on the SAP Gateway without the SAP Solution Manager – find all deployment options in section “Deployment options” of the Fiori Tracker manual.
One of the major goals of project management is the clarity on responsibility.
Fiori Tracker makes it crystal clear who is responsible for each SAP Fiori application available through SAP Fiori Launchpad. The information is available in seconds directly from the application itself (with Fiori Launchpad plugin), or through the application card view.
All applications in scope can be found with a Google-like search function. The responsibility is determined based on the application stream assignment: Each application is assigned to the stream, each stream has named functional consultant assigned. Applications that belong to P2P stream have P2P functional consultant set as responsible and so on, depending on how you decide to set up your streams. This way in case of changes, in a functional consultant position, the assignment is passed through the stream assignment, and there is no need to update attributes of the application itself. Same assignment rule is applied for Fiori Launchpad business catalogs, groups, and roles.
During the implementation phase, you will find this function useful whenever you will need to:
Set the scope for implementation, testing or for go-live readiness for each stream
Assign resolving issues resulting from testing the application
Make decisions on assignment to roles, Fiori launchpad business catalogs or groups
There is currently no way in SAP standard to report usage of SAP Fiori applications (see SAP notes below) meaning, users can’t run the report and have the list of most popular SAP Fiori applications.
This is something many people have been looking for since the beginning of the SAP Fiori offering. So we (at Nype) have prepared the solution, which is based on the SAP Fiori launchpad plugin and the catalog of all the apps in the scope – you have a clear view on all started application details and their link to SAP Fiori library id. The report runs in the central system (you can choose SAP Solution Manager for that) that collects data separately for each of your systems in your system landscape.
Here is how the report looks:
You can install the “Apps usage
report for SAP Fiori launchpad” by downloading the transport from GitHub:
The report was priceless during the
implementation when testing. It was also a huge help when deciding on the
priority of adjusting the apps after the upgrade. As well as deciding on the
business impact when users reported issues with specific apps. We also used it
to detect scope creep – this is especially important when the number of custom
and extended apps grows, and the project is not tracking who is responsible for
maintaining new apps.
