Course information

Course Summary

Intelligent Enterprises use their data assets effectively to achieve desired outcomes faster – and with less risk. Responding to individual customer needs, engaging talent in new ways, and creating disruptive business models are critical business imperatives. By becoming an Intelligent Enterprise, you can achieve these goals, and more. By eliminating data silos and automating data wrangling and integration, you can recognize unseen patterns and provide new intelligence to service customers and employees. This can help you to direct scarce resources to areas where they’ll have the greatest impact and give you the insight into your business processes to rapidly respond to change, pivot towards the right outcomes, and guard against disruptive competitors.

To make the most of your data and become an Intelligent Enterprise, you need your data sources to be connected and integrated. Take an automated, guided approach to integration. Seamlessly integrate your SAP and non-SAP cloud environments and technologies, extend with open APIs, and more.

This course will provide you with an overview of SAP’s holistic integration strategy to support the Intelligent Enterprise. You’ll learn about the integration such as user experience, process, data, analytics, IoT, master data, process orchestration, security, automation, extensibility, and much more.

Course Structure

This nutshell course differs from other openSAP courses in that it’ll take only 3-4 hours to complete, and all the content will be available to you at the start of the course. Only the units of section 1 are mandatory to gain a record of achievement. The ones in section 2 to 5 are optional. However, we encourage all of you to continue watching the videos to gain a deeper understanding of SAP’s integration concepts and technologies.

We know you have a hectic schedule, so we’ve created short modules that cover need-to-know information about integration – the key to the Intelligent Enterprise. The modules contain:

  • Videos (approx.20 minutes each) that cover the key topics
  • Self-test questions to check your understanding of the videos
  • Course assignment, which is based on the section 1 content
  • Additional resources to continue building your knowledge

After you’ve worked through all the sections, you can do a course assignment based on the video lectures from section 1 and earn points towards a record of achievement (minimum score of 50% required). You don’t need to complete the course in one sitting. Feel free to dip in whenever you have some time.
