Fundamental differences between a native and SAP Fiori iOS development?

728 Views Last edit Jan 03, 2018 at 01:47 PM 2 rev

Hi there, I am a native iOS apps developer and now trying my hands over SAP's Cloud Platform SDK for iOS and SAP Fiori for iOS. I am pretty excited about the framework and especially checking the SAP things for the first time in my career.

So here, I have a couple of questions, which I think, if answers, it will surely help me to understand this framework and the purpose to use in my next app. Looking forward to hearing on this asap.

Note: I have downloaded and installed the assistant tool which can be used to create a master-details flow application in iOS.

1. Which is the main reason to use SAP Fiori for iOS and SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS instead of a native development, like I am doing every day?

2. Is there any framework (and assistant tool) available for Android too?

3. The main purpose of using SAP Fiori and SAP Cloud Platform is to have SAP database connection with my app?

4. How to maintain the app updates for SAP Fiori or SAP Cloud SDK?

5. Can I link my private server APIs (web services) to my SAP Fiori and SAP Cloud SDK enabled app?

6. Can I use SAP Fiori UI and/or SAP Cloud Platform SDK in my app without the need for a SAP account? Is it available to install via Cocoapods or Carthage?
