Everyone at SAP knows that SCN members are among the brightest minds in our extended community. With that in mind, here’s a quick quiz for you:
What do the following applications have in common?
SAP Precision Marketing, SAP Product Stewardship Network, SAP Cloud Appliance Library, SAP Financial Services Network, SAP SuccessFactors Media Service, SAP Fan Experience, SAP My Runway, SAP Care Circles, SAP Scouting, SAP Precision Gaming
If you guessed, “Next generation SAP applications,” you’re correct.
“SAP cloud applications primarily geared to consumers?” Right again.
But did you know that each of these solutions was built with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform? SAP’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering is an open, standards-based cloud platform that enables all of you – our customers, partners and developers — to build, deploy and operate some truly innovative applications for today’s always-on, mobile, social and data-driven world. We’re seeing some great success with this true PaaS offering (just ask Danone, Hamburg Port Authority, Keytree and others), and TechEd is an ideal opportunity to find out more!
In fact, the myriad of lectures and workshops on SAP HANA Cloud Platform reads like a “show me the technology” overview of the PaaS offering’s strengths. You’ll find sessions on backend system integration, mobile development, security, SAPUI5, rapid application development and more. You can also see the SAP HANA Cloud Platform in action on the Technology Showcase floor, with abundant demos, accompanying development tales, and opportunities to ask your questions.
And if you can’t wait until the start of TechEd, don’t forget the ASUG Pre-Conference Seminar, SAP HANA Cloud Platform – A Guided Tour, featuring my PaaS expert colleagues, Matthias Steiner and Yariv Zur. There is no better way to thoroughly immerse yourself in anything and everything SAP HANA Cloud Platform; you’ll have a full day to learn, provide feedback to product management, exchange tips and tricks with your peers, and hear from partners and others who are seeing great results with the Platform. You’ll also get a taste of the increasingly large ecosystem of Platform developers, partners and customers.
Regardless of the route you take, I hope you make time in this year’s busy TechEd agenda to check out the SAP HANA Cloud Platform. Safe travels to all, and see you there!
