The SAP UI5 Difference

Most SAP customers run disparate applications that connect to SAP. Further, most customers use disparate browsers and devices. SAP UI5 enables easy development of web interfaces with the following advantages:

  1. Consistent user experiences across SAP and non-SAP solutions
  2. Single, responsive app for all browsers, platforms, and devices
  3. Rich set of UI elements with built-in security and accessibility
  4. Easy to integrate to business processes of the SAP ecosystem
  5. Ability to extend SAP standard apps with SAPUI5’s integrated adaptation capabilities
  6. Flexible development environments and tools to efficiently build, test, and deploy apps in both pro-code and low-code ways
  7. Flexibility during upgrades due to separation of application and framework code
  8. Available for SAP and non-SAP technology stacks with open source (OpenUI5).

SAP UI5 is part of the user interface technologies that come with SAP HANA, SAP NetWeaver and Java systems. SAP UI5 comes with components which are working codes. Components can be either user interface components or faceless components.

All a developer needs to develop SAP UI5 applications are a development environment and a browser. Many SAP developers use the SAP Business Application Studio. Many also download UI5 developer tools of Eclipse. Many specialized vendors, such as kctdata,  specialize in creating SAP UI5 apps.

SAPUI5 offers a large set of controls ranging from simple ones like the Label to complex controls like the Planning Calendar control. In addition, it also offers custom controls which allow you to develop your own control. Watch this video to learn about creating and modifying a SAPUI5 Custom Control.

By embracing web standards, asynchronous loading, and emerging technologies, SAPUI5 continues to be a future-proof, enterprise-proven solution.
