HANAfy your ABAP skills

Vitaliy Rudnytskiy
Developing and deploying applications on SAP HANA
Clear explanation of all the underlying parts of SAPHCP with example use cases by SCN community members.

Simplify your SAP system with SAP HANA Cloud Platform

Run Simple
, Next Generation Business Suite, Simplify, de one-liners vliegen je om de oren. Mooie beloftes van SAP om haar business suite te vereenvoudigen. Wat vervolgens niet helpt is om termen als Suite on HANA en Suite for HANA, de opvolgers van het bekende SAP ECC, naast elkaar te gebruiken. Wat is het verschil? Hoe helpt dit bij het vereenvoudigen van je omgeving? En wat betekent dit voor het bestaande maatwerk? In deze blog geef ik antwoord op deze en andere vragen.

Wie had dat 5 jaar geleden gedacht, de woorden SAP en Simpel in één zin gebruiken. Nu zien we dat SAP vol inzet op “Run Simple”. Enerzijds verbeteren ze de gebruikerservaring met SAP Fiori en anderzijds ze pakken de ERP suite grondig aan door deze te herschrijven. Want dat is waar SAP mee bezig is: het opnieuw ontwikkelen van SAP ERP. Waarom? In de nieuwe suite kunnen klanten optimaal gebruik maken van het HANA platform en dan met name de in-memory database.

Jeff Word
Killer use cases at Centerpoint part I and part II
How to make use of the possibilities that SAP HANA Platform offers. These two episodes explain how agents of a utilities call center are supported with predictive analysis. Customers are ‘mind read’ and when a customer calls the agent ‘knows’ what the customer is calling about.

Vinnie Mirchandani
SAP Nation 2.0: The Bigger Story
Vinnie is working on his successor of SAP Nation. Initially to address the launch of S/4HANA, but along the way customer stories and the troubles in aligning SAP acquisitions got to his writing table. Will be an interesting read.

Recap CodeJam Internet of Things with SAPHCP

May 29 2015, about 25 developers gathered at The Next View for another great SAP CodeJam event. This time all about Internet of Things with SAP HANA Cloud Platform. There is a lot to find online and here on SCN regarding theiot topic. It is a hot topic, some even call it the ‘new mobile’. But, as we have discussed that during the podcast, it’s not the new mobile as IoT has a much broader impact on both our personal as well as on our business lives.

With the newly announced (SAPPHIRE NOW 2015) IoT services for SAPHCP, SAP is really helping out developers to use the platform for IoT scenarios. With SAP’s tools you are facilitated in the development process so that you can focus on the actual scenario that you want to realise. And SAP promises to deliver much more new IoT services in the near future. Look forward to that …
