Why attend?

This seminar is a full-day technical deep dive into SAP Cloud Platform. Our agenda includes lectures from SAP experts, demonstrations of advanced scenarios from customers, and tactile SAP Cloud Platform experience with hands-on exercises. The content will span the major use cases for the platform including extending cloud line of business applications and building entirely new applications.

We will start with extensibility. Here, we will focus on how the extension foundation capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform ensure the clear decoupling of extension applications from the underlying SAP solutions via the public API layer while also providing built-in security, inherited data access governance, and user interface integration. Next, we will cover cloud-native development. Here, we will go through the normal application lifecycle and best practices for DevOps by using the SAP Cloud Platform capabilities that the Cloud Foundry environment contributes for application staging, operations, and updates. Each topic includes a presentation from SAP's customer/partner ecosystem and hands-on exercises.

Attend this session if you are a customer seeking to understand how you can utilize SAP Cloud Platform to securely extend your organization’s digital core, a partner looking for technical enablement, or a technology enthusiast interested in the latest information on SAP's PaaS that is underpinning buzz word technologies like "SAP Leonardo", "Extensibility", "Bimodal IT", "Artificial Intelligence", etc.
