What is SAP Build Work Zone?

A central launchpad in SAP serves several important purposes, which contribute to the efficiency, usability, and overall user experience within an SAP landscape.  Included in SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP), organizations can adopt to use such a centralized launchpad. This is where the power of SAP Build Work Zone comes into play.

We use embedded Fiori, why do we need SAP Build Work Zone?

There are many reasons to make the switch to SAP Build Work Zone. Because it is part of SAP BTP, the integration to other services on BTP forms part of the digital transformation and modernization of your organization’s journey. Let’s discuss some of these points.

Single Entry Point: SAP Build Work Zone provides users with a single, unified entry point to access various SAP applications, including SAP Fiori apps, classic SAP GUI transactions, Web Dynpro applications, and other relevant content. This streamlines the user experience by eliminating the need for users to remember multiple URLs or navigate through different interfaces to access different applications.

Personalization and Role-based Access: SAP can be personalized based on user roles, preferences, and business requirements. Users see only the applications, tiles, and content that are relevant to their roles and responsibilities, which improves efficiency and reduces clutter.

Consistent User Experience: By consolidating access to different applications and content within a single interface, SAP Build Work Zone ensures a consistent and intuitive user experience across various devices and platforms. This consistency enhances user adoption and satisfaction.

Enhanced Navigation and Search: SAP Build typically provides intuitive navigation features, such as categorized tiles, search functionality, and favourites, making it easy for users to find and access the applications they need quickly. This improves productivity and reduces the time spent searching for relevant information.

Mobile Accessibility: SAP Build Work Zone is optimized for mobile devices, allowing users to access SAP applications and content from anywhere, at any time. This flexibility enables mobile work scenarios and supports modern, on-the-go business processes.

Integration and Extensibility: SAP Build can integrate with various SAP and non-SAP systems, enabling seamless access to applications and content from within the interface. Additionally, they often support extensibility options, allowing organizations to add custom tiles, applications, and integrations to meet specific business requirements.

ETZ’s approach

We had a request from a client to implement Fiori Launchpad as part of their S/4 migration, who was already using integration services on BTP. With SAP Build Work Zone included in the BTP licenses, our team of experts configured SAP Cloud Identity Services along with SAP Build for a seamless point of entry from their existing 3rd party identity provider.  This allowed users effortless access to the launchpad.

The focus of Fiori in its conception is to modernize the User Experience. For that reason, our authorization specialists developed custom roles for each business function and managed access in BTP. With this, we made sure that the User Experience is consistent throughout, making user adoption a key factor in the success of their migration.
