How is multi-client capability supported on simplifier?

A separate container instance of the Simplifier is required per client. This ensures maximum flexibility for switching between onPremise and the cloud and guarantees the protection of data through separate processing and data storage. The Simplifier license allows the flexible distribution of users and apps on different Simplifier instances, so that an extensive client concept can be set up over several containers.

Do I need other SAP Products to use Simplifier?

Simplifier is a Low Code Platform based on OpenUI5, though it is not SAP centric in particular. If you are a SAP customer, you have many products that Simplifier seamlessly integrates with and builds up upon. E.g. if you own a SAPUi5 License, you can easily use SAPUI5 instead of the OpenUI5 library. Simplifier integrates with all kinds of SAP APIs, onPremise Systems, SAP Cloud Platform & Services. Although Simplifier highly leverages SAP Products and Technologies, it can be also used to integrate with a wide variety of Systems and Data Sources. Keep in mind, Simplifier is a design and runtime at once, meaning that you can build applications totally independent from Software Vendors or Core Systems.

How is Simplifier different from SAP Fiori?

Simplifier is THE low code platform for UI5/Fiori apps. In contrast to the traditional process of creating a Fiori app by hand, in Simplifier apps are created based on configuration and the source code is generated automatically. Nevertheless, programmatic adaptations of the created Fiori Apps can also be made. A differentiation is therefore perhaps a misleading term because Simplifier fits seamlessly into the SAP toolchain for app creation and significantly accelerates the creation of Fiori apps. For this reason Simplifier is fully certified by SAP and is also available in the SAP AppCenter 

Is Simplifier Cloud-only or can it be used on-Premise?

Simplifier runs within a Docker Container and can be used either as a Cloud Platform or On-Premise. It is a full stack web-based development and customization platform including a design and runtime so there is no need for additional development environments.

To get Simplifier on-Premise or Cloud Images we offer several options:
