SAP HANA Cloud Platform

FULL


Ross Hightower

SAP has made it clear that their future is HANA and the cloud.  As educators we must monitor the changes in the industry so that we can prepare our students to meet the challenges of the workforce.  While the move by customers to these platforms has been gradual initially, the level of adoption is accelerating.  The need for people with the skills to work in these environments will become critical in coming years.  This workshop will provide faculty with the tools to introduce their students to application development on HANA and the HANA Cloud Platform.

- The material in the workshop is diverse and may appeal to a wide range of faculty although most of the cases are technical in nature. 

- For the application development portion, a programming background, especially with JavaScript will be essential to gaining the maximum benefit. 

- JavaScript,  a familiarity with database, SQL and analytics will be helpful.
