Course Summary

Are you curious about the opportunities to do business and deliver services around SAP cloud products such as SAP SuccessFactors solutions, SAP Cloud for Customer, or SAP Jam? Then we invite you to step in and get your hands dirty with the live samples and tutorials we’ve prepared for you.

This course will guide you through the next level - putting SAP HANA Cloud Platform into good use for extending various SAP products. You'll learn about most of the extension options that the SAP products support, and explore the required technologies and tools that will help you to gain traction in that space. As part of the course, you’ll create your first extensions for SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite and SAP Cloud for Customer, as well as experiment with different collaboration options in SAP Jam. You’ll get free access to the corresponding system APIs, which you can use after the course as well for follow-up prototyping and experiments. To follow all the units effectively, you should have completed the openSAP courses Introduction to SAP HANA Cloud Platform and Next Steps in SAP HANA Cloud Platform. The course content assumes that you’re already familiar with the concepts and technologies introduced there, and that you have practical experience developing and deploying Java and HTML5 applications on SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

Registration, learning content, access to the required systems, and the final exam are 100% free of charge to all participants.

Development Systems

If your primary interest in taking this course is to get a technical overview of the development-related capabilities of SAP HANA Cloud Platform, you do not need access to a development system. However, we realize that many of you will be interested in developing your own code, based on the instructions in the course.

To benefit most from this course, you should have completed the openSAP course Introduction to SAP HANA Cloud Platform and already have a free developer license for SAP HANA Cloud Platform as described in that course. For the purpose of the course exercises, you will need access to an SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite API and an SAP Cloud for Customer API. We will provide the required system details as part of the course description. You’ll also be given access to your own fully functional SAP Jam instance. The course content will focus on the publicly provided accounts and infrastructure, in order to provide a consistent experience for all participants. If you already have access to a productive account for SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, SAP Cloud for Customer, or an SAP Jam system, we’ll also provide references to the configuration guides, explaining how to configure the SAP HANA Cloud Platform integration there.
