Cloud-Native Development with SAP Cloud Platform

Category:Technology

Course Level Growing

Course Description

SAP Cloud Platform is the enterprise platform-as-a-service, with comprehensive application development services and capabilities. It enables customers to achieve business agility, create a truly integrated and optimized enterprise, and accelerate digital transformation across the business – all without the requirement of maintaining or investing in on-premise infrastructure.

In this new advanced course, you’ll learn how to develop microservice-based cloud-native applications with SAP Cloud Platform through hands-on exercises. You’ll be working primarily with the Cloud Foundry environment within SAP Cloud Platform and many of its open-source services to develop step-by-step a Java-based application that is made for the cloud.

We’ll start with a theoretical introduction to SAP Cloud Platform and microservice architectures. We will also cover Spring basics and introduce the sample application with which we will be working throughout the course for the hands-on exercises. In the following weeks, we’ll go deeper into how to create a microservice, how to connect a database, how to handle logging and tracing, as well as service-to-service communication, how to ensure security, and additional topics like multitenancy, continuous integration and delivery, Spring Boot and advanced microservice design. In between we will also cover topics like REST services, stateless apps, Cloud Foundry as a platform, unit and component testing, and much more. In the hands-on exercises we will start based on an empty shell application and build a full real-world cloud application. The optional system preparation with instructions on setting up the development environment and some information to get started will open two weeks before the actual course start.

This advanced course is primarily aimed at developers and application and technology consultants who have already finished the openSAP course SAP Cloud Platform Essentials (Update Q3/2017) and want to learn more. For the first time, we’ll cover in-depth microservice architectures and the open-source services of the Cloud Foundry environment within SAP Cloud Platform, and how to leverage them to build cloud-native applications.

As this course focuses in detail on the app level, the backend and how to offer REST services, topics like building SAP Fiori UIs with SAPUI5 are not covered. To learn about those topics please have a look at the great openSAP courses Developing Web Apps with SAPUI5 and SAP Fiori for iOS – Build Your First Native Mobile App.

Also, database development for SAP HANA is not covered in this course, please refer to the openSAP course Software Development on SAP HANA (Update Q4/2017) to learn more about that.

The registration, learning content, and final exam are free of charge. You’ll be able to get some practical experience of the platform by using a free trial account. We’ll explain how you can access this in the System Preparation.

Digital Supply Chain – From Design to Operate

Category:Technology

Course Level Growing

 

Course Description

Many companies still run in departmental silos, which in turn leads to functional silos in all aspects of the supply chain, from design, plan, manufacture, deliver to operate. This results in a need for a connected supply chain, from the design of new smarter products through manufacturing and delivery and ultimately, through the full lifecycle of the product in the field. This doesn’t just apply across departments within an organization, it also applies to the ecosystem of customers, suppliers, contract manufacturers, logistics service providers, and other partners. The only way to address these challenges is to build an end-to-end digital supply chain, from design and planning to manufacturing, logistics, and operations. To achieve a digital supply chain, you need to “connect digitally to perfect reality”.

In this course, you’ll learn what the vision of the Intelligent Enterprise means and how important the intelligent digital supply chain is for transforming this vision into reality. We’ll also give you an insight into the complete portfolio of SAP’s supply chain solutions, and how each of them supports you to digitally connect your entire supply chain, to deliver at your best today while you adapt and continuously improve to reshape how you deliver tomorrow, and to eventually perfect reality.

Course Description

Design Thinking and Challenge Management combine techniques that foster an innovation culture in companies with a human-centric approach.

Ongoing digitization sets totally new standards every day and brings a lot of new requirements to economies, businesses, and people. The digital transformation is changing society and is evident all around us.

Innovation cycles have accelerated massively and require a different behavior than in the past. Agile innovation is the prerequisite for success. Organizational changes have to be accompanied by personal or individual change, as digital transformation is only effective and successful in an enterprise when personal transformation happens in parallel.

Well-established methodologies and concepts have to be combined with new concepts that fit into today’s world. Design Thinking is a proven methodology that SAP offers to customers, but also uses itself to support out-of-the-box thinking and the development of new innovation approaches in an agile, fast, and structured way. With Challenge Management by Dr. Wladimir Klitschko, we invite people and organizations to experience a concept that complements agile corporate methodologies such as Design Thinking with meaningful personal strategies that enable people to confidently deal with the challenges arising from change.
