Big Data is an extraordinary knowledge revolution that is sweeping through business, academia, government, healthcare, and everyday life. It enables us to provide a healthier life for our children, ensure safety and independence for older people, conserve precious resources like water and energy, and peer into our own individual, genetic makeup.
The term “Big Data” describes the accumulation and analysis of vast amounts of information.
But Big Data is much more than big data. It’s also the ability to extract meaning: to sort through masses of numbers and find the hidden patterns and unexpected correlations.
You’ll learn from use cases what it takes to extract that value from Big Data, and which solutions are available to acquire, store, analyze, and act on Big Data. We will also introduce SAP Rapid Deployment solutions, which help businesses adopt Big Data solutions.

SAP HANA is an in-memory data platform that is deployable as an appliance or in the cloud. At its core, it is an innovative in-memory relational database management system that makes full sense of the capabilities of current hardware to increase application performance, to reduce cost of ownership, and to enable new scenarios and applications that were not possible before.
With SAP HANA, you have the opportunity to build applications that integrate the business logic, control logic, and the database layer with unprecedented performance. As a developer, one of the key questions is how you can minimize data movements. The more you can do directly on the data in memory next to the CPUs, the better the application will perform.
This course will introduce you to native software development on SAP HANA. Registration, learning content, and the final exam are free of charge. However, to fully benefit from the course, you can access a fee-based system environment to develop your own code.
