SAP Cloud Platform Essentials

via openSAP


SAP Cloud Platform is the enterprise platform-as-a-service, with comprehensive application development services and capabilities. It enables customers to achieve business agility, create a truly integrated and optimized enterprise, and accelerate digital transformation across the business – all without the requirement of maintaining or investing in on-premise infrastructure. Since its introduction in 2012, SAP Cloud Platform has been continually improved and additional functionality has been delivered. In this basics course, you’ll get an overview of the platform in its most up-to-date state yet, including the Cloud Foundry-based offering. In week 1, we’ll start with a theoretical introduction to SAP Cloud Platform, its value proposition and use cases. We’ll also cover its architecture, capabilities, and data center strategy. This part of the course is especially interesting for IT decision makers, but should also be valuable for application developers and operation experts as it provides a broad understanding of the platform. In the following weeks, we’ll go deeper into applications, persistence, connectivity, and security, with theory and practice. In the final week, we’ll cover the IoT and Mobile Services offering, as well as the new services for Workflow and Business Rules. This course is applicable to learners with all levels of knowledge about SAP Cloud Platform. Even if you’ve joined a previous version of this course or other courses about SAP Cloud Platform before, this course should be interesting for you because for the first time, it also covers our Cloud Foundry-based offering, as well as some new services like the offering for Workflow and Business Rules. The registration, learning content, and final exam are free of charge. You’ll be able to get some practical experience of the platform by using a free trial account. We’ll explain how you can access this at the start of the course.

Start your review of SAP Cloud Platform Essentials

  • A very brave and holistic presentation of the cloud platform and its potentials. During the course there is the chance to experiment a lot using java and html5 with local servers, data bases, the cloud engine and from cloud to cloud! You can also learn sophisticated security protocols and play with them. The configurations and some features are an issue, but as a whole it is a very big package of knowledge.
