Just select the respective tile under “Boosters” in your Global Account and have the set-up done for you: You can start with your trial experience right away. Several boosters are already available, two for the starter scenarios “Automate and Extend Employee Onboarding” and “Create a Native App for iOS and Android without Writing Code” respectively. In August we will also publish two more boosters: one for “Develop an SAP Fiori App Using ABAP” and one for “Get Started with Document Information Extraction.” Stay tuned!
