Want to learn about the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud solution at the SAP TechEd conference this year? Well, you have a lot of options!

SAP TechEd, of course, is free and virtual in 2020 – offering hours (December 8-10) of non-stop events that include keynotes, lectures, breakouts, expert Q&As, road map sessions, and deep-dive workshops. What’s more, the agenda follows the sun – delivering sessions that you can jump into at your convenience no matter where you are in the world.

As for SAP Data Warehouse Cloud? Well, it’s the powerful, intuitive cloud solution that brings data and analytics together so people can get the insight they need to do their jobs better.

Workshops for the tech-minded

If you’re the technical type and you really want to dive into various topics on what SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is all about, then you’ll want to have a look at some of our workshops at SAP TechEd. These workshops typically last two hours and give you a solid deep dive into various topics. Here are some to look at for your agenda at SAP TechEd.

Common Tools for SQL Data Warehousing and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud [ANA369]

This one is a hands-on workshop where you get the opportunity to build a data warehouse scenario with SAP HANA for SQL data warehousing. Then you can redeploy your models to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.

The result is empowered business users who can connect, model, and visualise data themselves with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. With an intuitive UI and the business layer, business users can model data in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud using either SQL or a graphical drag-and-drop tool. This way IT and business users can work together in the same governed environment.

This workshop is led by Klaus-Peter Sauer and Axel Meier – both product managers with SAP. If you want to democratise data access throughout the organisation, book this one today!


Integrating Cloud Solutions from SAP into SAP Data Warehouse Cloud [ANA367]

If you’re looking to get the most out of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, you’ll want to consider integrating it with other cloud-based SAP solutions: SAP HANA Cloud, SAP S/4HANA, SAP BW/4HANA, SAP Ariba and SAP SuccessFactors solutions, and much more.

This workshop session – led by Gordon Witzel and Daniel Felsmann, product managers at SAP – provides an overview of how to move your data from such cloud solutions to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. The result: consolidated data warehouse models that span various applications and processes – enabling the analytical insights needed to power the intelligent enterprise.

Agile Business Layer Modeling with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud [ANA203]

This session is actually not a formal workshop. It’s billed as a 40-minute lecture by San Tran, product manager at SAP. But workshop or not – you’ll want to listen in. It’s about a new feature of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud that’s getting a lot of attention: the business layer.

The business layer is a new modeling environment targeting the needs of a business user. Business users can describe semantically rich models using business language and terminologies, without having to interact with the underlying physical data layer. The business layer hides data complexity while keeping modeling assets stable – all without compromising on the flexibility needed to manage changes on the data layer.

Put this one on your agenda if you want to explain what data democratisation is and how the business layer helps promote it.
