Course information

Course Summary

Nowadays, managing the storage, aggregation, analysis, and provision of data across an organization is more important than ever. Organizations with obsolete legacy systems face significant challenges in consolidating data from different sources, maintaining consistency and quality, and making the necessary updates within the required timelines. Moreover, emerging solutions based on analytics, AI, and industrial IoT all rely on unfettered access to comprehensive, high-quality data to generate business insights.

SAP HANA powers the SAP data and analytics portfolio and is the catalyst that helps organizations put data at the center of their business strategy – to run and extend SAP applications, innovate with custom data-driven solutions, incorporate IoT, or simplify their landscape as they embrace cloud-driven innovation.

In this course, you’ll get insights into SAP HANA and SAP HANA Cloud. First, you’ll get a baseline introduction to in-memory database technology and the various deployment options available on-premise and in the cloud. We’ll follow that up by exploring the mechanisms for connecting to data and making it available for business insights. And finally, you’ll learn some of the architectural and administrative considerations for managing an enterprise deployment of the technology. As a bonus, we’ve also prepared some optional advanced topics for those of you who’d like to dig deeper into the unique capabilities offered with SAP HANA and SAP HANA Cloud.
