Keeping pace with the rapidly developing world of information technology is a need that SAP helps to fill with openSAP. openSAP is developed and provided by SAP in cooperation with the Hasso Plattner Institute.

openSAP works according to the principle of "Massive Open Online Courses" (MOOC): The key difference between MOOCs and other types of e-learning lies in the way MOOCs demand commitment by leveraging tried and trusted classroom concepts in an online delivery format.

openSAP uses these concepts in the following ways:

- openSAP courses are conducted entirely online. All the material provided can be accessed from any device that is connected to the Internet, be it a desktop, a laptop, a smartphone, or a tablet.

- openSAP courses have a defined duration (usually between five and seven weeks) to which course participants need to adhere.

- openSAP courses are based on video units, supporting material (slide decks, handouts), and self-tests.

- Course participants need to work on weekly assignments and keep to deadlines. The weekly assignment is graded and contributes to the points required to receive a record of achievement.

- Course participants can discuss the course content in a discussion forum.

- openSAP courses end with a final exam.

- Upon successful completion of the weekly assignments and the final exam, participants receive a record of achievement.

- openSAP courses are conducted in English.

The average duration of the video units is 90 minutes per week. Combined with additional self-study and weekly assignments, the average effort required to complete an openSAP course successfully will be 4–5 hours per week. This makes it easy for course participants to combine courses with their other tasks.

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.
