System RequirementsDescription
Client DeviceSAP Fiori apps and the SAP Fiori launchpad run on various smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computers that supports HTML5. SAP Fiori client is the recommended native application runtime on mobile devices.
Reverse Proxy ServerFor communication between client devices and your front-end server, we recommend installing a reverse proxy server, for example, SAP Web Dispatcher. Due to standard browser limitations, using a reverse proxy server is mandatory for some SAP Fiori apps.
Front-End ServerTo host and provide SAP Fiori app content to the client, you’ll need to install and configure several UI components for your front-end server. SAP Gateway software is also required.
Back-End ServerThe back-end server hosts the SAP business applications for which the SAP Fiori apps have been created. To access the corresponding business logic and business data (including users, roles, and authorizations), services for SAP Fiori apps have to be deployed.
DatabaseDepending on the SAP Fiori app and the product that you want to use, a SAP HANA database or any other database is required to store the corresponding  business data.
Enterprise MobilityMobile devices accessing SAP Fiori apps via the Internet require additional capabilities. We recommend using the SAP Fiori client with SAP Mobile Platform to deliver a native application experience with improved performance and security.
