Course Summary

SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, SAP’s premier private managed cloud offering, helps customers survive and thrive during this time of constant change and digital revolution. SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is a fully scalable, secure, and private cloud-based service for both new and existing customers. It provides comprehensive cloud infrastructure and managed services that enable you to accelerate and simplify the adoption of SAP S/4HANA, along with other solutions powered by SAP HANA. With built-in operations and management functionalities, SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud can be implemented quickly, without trade-offs in performance, integration, security, or disaster recovery.

This course will discuss how SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud helps our customers act on their digital strategy as they begin their journey to the cloud and prepare to leverage SAP’s current and future innovations. The transfer of SAP solutions to the cloud is a journey we’ve all been anticipating, and for customers, SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is a great option because it gives them the best of both worlds - the full power of SAP HANA in a private, managed cloud environment supported by SAP resources.

Here is what some participants are saying about the course:

  • "This is my second open course and I really enjoyed it. The course was informative but to lengthy or technical. I like all aspects but the videos are the most useful part for me, I pause the videos and read the slides before listening to the speaker. My only wish is that I had more to dedicate to these very useful courses." Read the original post
