An Instructor’s Guide to the SAP HANA Galaxy (…the answer is still 42)
This week I started my 6 weeks of teaching SAP HANA Technology classes and I thought it would be an nice to share my experience here on SCN,
I’m Hay Bouten, a SAP HANA Technology trainer at SAP Nederland B.V.

- Week 3: Berlin, DE teaching HA200 – SAP HANA – Installation & Operations.
- Week 4: London, UK teaching WNLHD7 – Technology Delta HANA SPS7.
- Week 4: Walldorf, DE teaching WSPREP – SAP Exam Workshop SAP Certified Support Support Associate – SAP HANA.
- Week 5: ‘s-Hertogenbosch, NL teaching HA200 – SAP HANA – Installation & Operations.
- Week 6: Eindhoven, NL – teaching HA200 – SAP HANA – Installation & Operations as a Virtual Live Classroom (VLC) training.
The starting point of my SAP HANA journey is at our beautiful SAP NL office. Here I spend most of my working days …. yes I know it’s a tough job.
This first week I’m teaching the WNLHD7 – Technology Delta HANA SPS7 course. I created/developed this course myself after talking with my former students during the SAP TechEd 2013 in Amsterdam.
In this three day course the participants learn all the cool new technology that is delivered with SAP HANA SPS07. That means we have to do some lectures on these topics, but my prime focus is on hands-on. And with hands-on I mean hands-on. During the class the participants will perform the following tasks:
- Install a SAP HANA SPS07 Single Host system.
- Install a SAP HANA SPS07 Scale-Out system.
- Patch the installed SAP HANA System to revision 72 using the HANA Life-cycle Manager (HLM) in a browser.
- Update SAP HANA Studio using the Software Update Site technique.
- Setup a SAP HANA System Replication between two servers and performing a take-over.
Lot’s of hands-on and still some time to do the theoretical lectures. On the last day the course is ended with the certification test C_HANATEC131. So for me that is a good test to see if the knowledge transfer was successful. The end result was very very rewarding nobody failed!!!
Here a picture of the happy few.
These guys did a great job, because they went through 350 pages of material, performed all the exercises and somehow found the time to study for the exam.
So now I’m preparing for my trip to Brussels. One thing I should not forget on my SAP HANA roadtrip is my towel!!
