How SAP Splash and Build Accelerates Fiori DevelopmentSAP Fiori provides a responsive design environment for applications across all devices on a single code base. It is the same platform SAP uses for S/4 HANA and other enterprise applications, but you can use it to design the kind of simple, useful apps that help your people get things done anytime and anywhere. Fiori offers a responsive design to provide a seamless experience on any device.

Splash and Build Prototyping for SAP FIORI Applications
