Application Integration Made Simple with SAP HANA Cloud Integration (openSAP)

Created by: Delivered by:

In this course, we address one of the most important considerations when it comes to companies moving to the cloud: integration. Imagine a customer orders an article on the Internet. Clicking the “Buy article” button triggers a lot of processes, and data is exchanged between different software systems so that the article is shipped, the seller’s catalog of goods is updated, and the correct amount is invoiced. If you want to implement such an application for your enterprise, you face the challenge of cross-linking a large number of different software systems and data sources. You also need to consider that the systems typically “speak” different connection protocols and store their data in different formats. SAP HANA Cloud Integration helps you to solve this challenge.

Integration stands at the very center of digital transformation. Since the emergence of the Internet, companies have had to find new ways to run their processes in diverse settings, and to transfer data safely and smoothly across different systems, both internally and externally. To achieve this communication between systems, SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAP HCI) is the solution of choice. SAP HCI is, in addition, the central strategic integration platform for SAP and a core constituent of SAP's cloud strategy. Knowing how to use it is therefore essential for the future success of every company in the SAP ecosystem. This course will give you all the information you need to get started. We’ll cover the basic underlying concepts of SAP HCI, how to work with pre-packaged integration content, and how customers are currently using it. At the heart of the course is a tutorial on how to use SAP HCI to solve integration problems. During the course, you’ll learn how to model, run, and monitor integration scenarios. The course will be rounded off with a unit about the development of adapters for connecting to various systems, and a roadmap session about SAP HCI’s future.
