“SAP HANA is a completely re-imagined platform for real-time business”

You may have heard of SAP HANA, but do you know how it could help your business to run better? There are two courses now available for free from openSAP that can help answer your burning questions about SAP HANA.

An Introduction to SAP HANA by Dr. Vishal Sikka provides an overview of why SAP built SAP HANA, how it works and how it’s helping SAP customers to run better. You don’t need to be technical to understand this course as Vishal explains SAP HANA in a simplified way. Don’t take our word for it, here’s just some of the feedback received in the “I like, I wish forum” within the course:

“I completed all the content in one sitting and even after 2 hours 45 mins my brain was not hurting.
I was quite inspired to find a reason to work with the software.”

“This course is a very good foundation to learn SAP HANA from scratch.
The topics are very apt and clear which is very well explained by Dr. Sikka.”

“This is the most practical and interactive course about SAP HANA I have ever heard or seen. This is the reason why it is very understandable.”

Once you’ve learned the basics of SAP HANA, you might be interested in learning about how a system runs on SAP HANA. SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA started yesterday and so far is being well received by participants in the discussion forum.

“Great start and many thanks for putting this on. Eagerly awaiting the Industry and Process benefits in the coming weeks”

“It's quite insightful and interesting to know about SAP HANA and the in memory computing capability. This is having powerful driven business decisions in real-time with a lot reduced TCO”

Over 21,000 participants have signed up to date to learn about what the SAP Business Suite is and the advantages of running the system on SAP HANA. Participants also have the chance to deep dive into the Lines of Business and Industries which are relevant to them.

SAP announced this week that SAP Business Suite will also be available as a cloud subscription so now is the ideal time to learn about what SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA can do for you.
