Day 2 Highlights for API Management and Gateway at TechEd && D-Code 2014
Another exciting day for SAP API Management and Gateway team at TechEd && D-Code Las Vegas! A huge number of participants eagerly waited to enter the show floor before it opens this morning. We kicked off the day with two interesting hands-on sessions, followed by Expert Networking sessions, lectures, demos and Q&A sessions. We were much excited to see the overwhelming participants everywhere.
It was impressive to see an amazing turn out at 8 AM. In this hands-on session, SAP’s Joerg Singler, Tatjana Pfeifer and Oliver Liemert guided attendees to
- Develop an SAP Fiori-style app in an end-to-end scenario
- Walk through the development and extension of an SAP Gateway OData service consisting of SAP HANA-based views and other datasources
- Generate and extend an SAP Fiori-style app with SAPUI5 and the new SAP River Rapid Development Environment
If you have missed it, make sure to reserve your spot when it is delivered again on Thursday 02:15 PM – 06:15 PM in San Polo 3404.
Yet another interesting hands-on session delivered by SAP’s Joav Bally and Mustafa Saglam. This session features the end-to-end process of provisioning OData services in SAP HANA Cloud Integration by mashing up several APIs from various SAP and non-SAP datasources. If you have missed it, our SAP executives are presenting it again on Thursday 08:00 AM – 10:00 AM in San Polo 3503. Hope to see you there!
One of our well visited speaker networking sessions presented by Himanshu Pande. He explained about our new solution SAP API Management that can help you manage and publish Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) in a secure and scalable manner. This session focused on how SAP API Management allows you to leverage your digital assets in such a way that they can lead you to a whole new world – the API-based economy and its impacts on businesses.
The integration gateway is the component in SAP Mobile Platform that supports connectivity to various back ends (data sources). Mustafa gave a brief overview of the integration gateway, followed by an open question-and-answer (Q&A) session. You can find more details in his blog What’s New in Integration Gateway in SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 SP04
Joav explained conceptually how SAP API Management enables simplified provisioning of secure and scalable application programming interfaces (APIs) by utilizing Representational State Transfer (REST). He networked with a huge number of participants to describe how SAP API Management provides independent third-party developers an easier way of integrating with SAP applications and how it streamlines the API development experience with built-in integration with SAP Gateway technology, the SAP HANA platform, and more. He will deliver the lecture again tomorrow, the 23rd October from 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM in Bellini 2003.
