Fact sheets are used to drill the key information and contextual information in business operations. In SAP Fiori tiles, you can drill down to further details.

Fact sheets also allow you to navigate to Transactional apps to run SAP transactions. A few fact sheets also provide an integration option of geographical maps.

Fact sheets only run on SAP HANA database and require an ABAP stack. They cannot be ported to SAP HANA Live tier-2 architecture.
