SAP Analytics Cloud is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that provides all the analytics capabilities for all users in one product. To take advantage of these capabilities, a wide range of data connectivity and authentication options are available for both on-premise and cloud data sources. This course will cover how to establish connectivity to these data sources, along with the available authentication options.
The first week of the course will focus on authentication options for SAP Analytics Cloud and live connectivity to various on-premise applications, like SAP HANA, SAP BW, SAP S/4HANA and SAP BusinessObjects BI Universes. The second week will cover connections to select number of cloud data sources, additional authentication options, deployment scenarios, import data connectivity, and tips on troubleshooting connectivity issues.
There are two ways to practice the concepts covered in the lectures. One option is to deploy the provided back-end system in your own AWS account and use it in conjunction with your own SAP Analytics Cloud system to practice the hands-on material. The second option is to take advantage of the interactive click-through demos, to get a similar experience to working with an actual system. Instructions on how to deploy the development system in your AWS account will be provided at the start of the course.
