Webinar: The Power of the SAP HANA Platform -- Integrating non-SAP data with custom HANA applications

Fri, 10/16/2015

Abstract: 

SAP HANA is a real-time, in-memory database that enables organizations to process “big data” in support of transactional processing, operational reporting, advanced analytics and predictive modeling. With that said, SAP HANA has the potential to be much more than a database. In fact, SAP HANA as platform can serve as an agile, flexible application development framework. This game-changing capability empowers organizations to build advanced applications directly on SAP HANA, leveraging the SAP HANA Extended Application Service (XS). Many clients have integrated SAP ECC data into either a side car approach or a suite on HANA solution, but many of us still haven’t realized the power that can be harnessed for non-SAP Transactional systems.

During this webinar, we will show you how to extract data from your external source systems, using tools such as Data Integrator and SAP Landscape Transformer Replication Server (SLT) and load into the SAP HANA database. From there, we will explain how to leverage the SAP HANA XS Engine to add value to your business through agile development methods. We will show you development tools such as SAP HANA Studio and an introduction to the Web IDE. We will detail the benefits and best practices while demonstrating small portions within the SAP HANA Application Layer.

This webinar will be Part I, where we will introduce how to create the following application:

  • Deploy a basic SAPUI5 Page
  • Expose Shipment Tracking data via Odata services
  • Use an SAPUI5 table element to display the Shipment Data
  • Integrate Google Maps with the Shipment Tracker Information

This webinar will give you the baseline understanding on each of the components, and then it will allow you to follow up with our secondary videos to give you more step-by-step detail in the creation of the remaining application.
