Course Summary

The massive increase in data volumes combined with the necessity to process data of different types at high velocity is driving data landscape complexity. It is often a challenge for companies to orchestrate end-to-end data flows, particularly when bridging the enterprise data and Big Data domains.

SAP Data Hub supports companies in

  • managing complex data landscapes spanning on-premise and cloud environments
  • defining and orchestrating end-to-end data flows across different systems and technologies
  • building highly scalable data-driven applications (data pipelines)

This course gives you an overview of SAP Data Hub. You’ll study the architecture as well as the installation/deployment options. Afterwards, you’ll get an introduction to the main functions of SAP Data Hub, including learning how to model your data landscape, how to do data discovery, and how to build workflows and data pipelines. At the end of the course, you’ll hear about future developments and the roadmap of SAP Data Hub.
