With the announcement this week of the release of the HANA Cloud Platform mobile services (HCPms) at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we want help you jumpstart your use of HCPms. On March 12 at 3pm CET (10am EST and 7am PST) I will be hosting the next mobility webinar on getting started with HCPms and using the HANA Cloud connector. You can register for the session here. After session is completed you will find links to the recording and the presentation on the webinar page.
If you are unfamiliar with HCPms I suggest you check out Martin Grasshoff’s introductory blog here. Martin also recently held a webinar on the topic. You can view the recording and get the presentation too.
This getting started session will introduce you to the HCPms administration cockpit. The new administrative user interface is consistent with the look and feel of the SAP Fiori user experience, keeping administrative tasks simple and efficient. From the admin cockpit, you can define native and hybrid applications, administrate users and registrations, manage the platform and report on platform activities.
We will also discuss how you use the HANA cloud connector to securely access the OData services residing inside your corporate network. We will walk through the installation and configuring of the cloud connector to connect to your HCPms account and to your backend OData services.
We will NOT be covering mobile application development during this session. If you are already using the SAP mobile SDK for developing native or hybrid applications for the on premise SMP 3.0 platform, those same application can run on HCPms with little or no changes. If you want more background on running you mobile applications on HCPms check out Midhun VP’s blog. If you are new to the mobile apps development using SAP’s mobile platforms, I suggest you check out our previous webinars. They provide more details about native and hybrid app development.
Finally, If you aren’t already licensed for HCPms, no worries, SAP is offering trial accounts for HCPms. So there is no time like the present to get started. Check out Martin’s blog on how to set up you trial HCPms account.
