At openSAP, we’re winding things down for the month of August so that our learners can recharge their batteries and enjoy the traditional vacation season. But don’t worry; we’re working hard behind the scenes to prepare new courses for you to join once you return! To kick start the new learning year at openSAP, we’re easing you in gently with two repeat courses, software development on SAP HANA and sustainability,  and a brand new topic at openSAP, SAP Cloud for Customer – SAP’s CRM solutions in the cloud.

Experience SAP Cloud for Customer

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a crucial element of any successful business. We’re inviting you to join our latest course, Experience SAP Cloud for Customer, where you can learn about SAP Cloud for Customer, SAP’s CRM cloud solutions offering, with a range of functions available such as: account and management intelligence, knowledge base & customer support portal, opportunity management & insights, real-time actionable analytics, and much more. From a technical perspective, SAP Cloud for Customer offers APIs & SDK, back office integration, mobility & offline access, amongst other technical offerings.

Experience SAP Cloud for Customer will explore six areas, starting with an overview of the SAP Cloud for Customer portfolio including the general consumer engagement and commerce strategy. Participants will get a functional overview of sales, service, marketing including mobility, collaboration, and analytics, along with industry solutions such as consumer products, insurance, retail, and others.

Participants will also get some hands-on experience to explore the new age of customer engagement and commerce solution with exercises on SAP Cloud for Customer. In the final week, the technical set up will be explained including integration scenarios, architecture, and extensibility including key user tools with SAP Cloud Applications Studio and SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

Software Development on SAP HANA (Delta SPS 09 Repeat)

Sustainability and Business Innovation (Repeat)

The openSAP course, Sustainability and Business Innovation, was first held in 2014 and proved popular amongst our learners. The SAP Sustainability team is working on a new course for 2016 and to prepare learners for the new course, we’re inviting you to join a repeat of Sustainability and Business Innovation this September. During this course, the SAP sustainability team will provide you with the tools to articulate a sustainable strategy for your organization, to make the business case for sustainability and sell it to the right people in your company. Going forward you will learn how to embed sustainable principles into your organization and the catalytic role IT can play in driving and executing a sustainable strategy.

The course was originally recorded by Peter Graf, the previous Chief sustainability officer, who has since left SAP. You can meet Daniel Schmid, SAP’s current Chief Sustainability Officer and the rest of the sustainability team in the forum. Daniel has been a key figure in the SAP sustainability team since 2008 and has a wealth of experience to answer your questions together with the sustainability team.
