    Hi Praveen,

    question 2 is easier to answer, so I'll start with that one.

    There is a current trend in the SAP world to provide web-based user interfaces to SAP applications. SAPUI5 (or its open source cousin Open UI5) provide a framework based on HTML5, CSS3, and Java script to develop these web applications. Given your experience with these technologies, you should be able to work with UI5 pretty fast. Basically, it's just another library.

    Fiori is a collection of apps that are now part of the Netweaver license (sort of, I'm not a licensing expert). These apps are built with SAPUI5 and provide very focus functionality. Each app is intended to serve exactly one use case, e.g. approving leave requests for your team. This design focus and the common UI design of these apps is also part of the Fiori philosophy. Finally, in this scenario Netweaver is basically the web server on which the apps are deployed and which provides access to the apps as well as the connection to other SAP systems.

    Now, I'm not sure what you mean by question 1. If you have no SAP knowledge at all, then this will be a little hard to get started with. SAPUI5 and Fiori are meant to be run on SAP systems and they provide the interface to processes that are run on SAP systems. However, just to get started with the topic, you might look at Open UI5. You can run that on any web server without the need for a SAP license.
