I did a recent podcast for SAPInsider, the conference producer for HR2015. You can hear the podcast and view the transcript here. Many of the questions were a precursor to the kinds of the questions I am sure we will be hearing from customers this year at the HR 2015 conference as well as ASUG/SAPPHIRE. Questions specifically around the roadmap for HR Renewal versus SAP Fiori and where/when/how these roads will merge within the SAP HCM space. Lots of questions around integration, mashups, and what types of skill sets customers/consultants will need in the future around these technologies.
Here are some of the resources that are available to us out there, specifically around SAPUI5 and its related offerings:
SAP Fiori Apps Library: Probably your best starting point for Fiori apps
HR Renewal 2.0 SAP Help documentation
The new SAP PRESS book on HR Renewal and SAP Fiori, the new Employee, Manager and HR Professional self service, from myself, Brandon Toombs, Kris Bland, and Justin Morgalis.
My session on “Latest Enhancements in SAP ERP HCM Self-Services: HR Renewal, SAP Fiori, and SAPUI5“. The rest of my sessions are here:
I also suggest you check out some sessions on these topics by two of the finest in the business: Martin Gillet and Brandon Toombs. Both will both give you an independent viewpoint on what’s good (and bad) about these technologies.
Brandon’s session on “Guidelines and requirements for adapting to the HR Professional role UI” will definitely be one to check out for those interested in understanding what’s new for the HR Professional. The rest of his sessions are here. You might also want to check out his blog series on SCN on comparing Employee Central and HR Renewal/SAP Fiori here: Blog 1 | Blog 2
Martin’s session on “An A-to-Z guide to streamlining HR processes across desktop and mobile devices with SAP Fiori” will be another great session to understand how SAP Fiori fits into your overall desktop and mobile self service strategy. The rest of his sessions are here.
Less than two weeks to the conference, and will be great to see many of industry friends again.
If you are going, please drop by booth #410 where Worklogix will be exhibiting and say hello.
