SuccessFactors Employee Central extensions for SAP HANA Cloud Platform [webinar]

Join fellow SAP Mentors Yariv Zur, Chris Paine, and myself on Monday 9th of December 2013 at 11:00 PST / 14:00 EST / 20:00 CET for a SAP Mentor Monday Public Webinar on SuccessFactors Employee Central extensions for SAP HANA Cloud Platform. In this webinar we will cover an overview of the SuccessFactors Employee Central extension package for SAP HANA Cloud Platform and how this provides customers with a way of extending the functionality of SuccessFactors Employee Central without modifying any SuccessFactors code. In this webinar we will cover:

  • Why do you need to extend SaaS?
  • Use cases where extensions make sense
  • Intro to SAP HANA Cloud Platforms – What it does, etc.
  • The extensions project – what it delivers today and what is planned down the road
  • Deep dive with Chris Paine of Discovery Consulting
  • Call for action – how to keep up-to-date on this topic on a much faster cadence

      Hi All,

      Bad news and good news. Bad news is that I will not be doing the webinar together with my esteemed fellow mentors (will be on a plane to SAP TechEd Bangalore!).

      The good news is that we will have a more than adequate replacement - Ohad Yassin, who is the SAP director for development & operations of the HANA Cloud Portal team will fill in for me. Please follow him at @ohadyas

      This is going to be great! Luke will have fun to make sure Ohad and I don't dive too much into the detail. But if anyone has any questions, this will be an amazing opportunity to get them answered!

      Looking forward to it!

      Cheers,

      Chris

      Looking forward to attending this session, and also to playing with these tools.

      Any idea if this will be available to SAP partners as trial version so they can play with their SF demo instance?

      Thanks

      Hi Mohammed,

      It is available, but requires a SAP Cloud partner agreement and there is a small annual subscription cost (around EUR3,500).

      Best regards,

      Luke

      Thanks Luke,

      Also discovered a way to play it with HCP trial account using a Benefit sample app.

      It seems that - like the session - the recording had a technical issue and isn't available. There is a good session that Jon Reed recorded with Chris Paine and myself:
