openSAP China: Statistics for BI Clients and Applications on SAP HANA

At the end of April 2015, the course 基于SAP HANA的商务智能客户端及应用 (BI Clients Applications on SAP HANA) hosted on openSAP China successfully closed.

In the course, now available on the platform as self-paced, students were presented with the latest Business Intelligence Applications running on SAP HANA. Thanks to the new subtitle function, our Chinese community could enjoy the course presented by James Rapp in English. Slides and transcripts were offered in both languages, while the assignments were completely translated in Chinese. The course gave the students the chance of getting a good feeling of how some of SAP’s BI Applications work by watching the many system demonstrations and they learned about many different business cases. They also could try out some exercises themselves, thanks to the guided simulations offered as additional download material.

Would you like to hear some statistics about the course?  Click on the video below and listen to James telling you!

Here are our statistics in a nutshell:

  • Enrollments: 10,259
  • Records of Achievements: 12 %
  • Women ratio: 31 %
  • Professionals: 55 %
  • Discussion posts: 225
  • Average age of the learners: 29

During the course we launched a small contest in our discussion forum and WeChat. We were looking for a name for our course’s mascot: the most-liked name is 飞豹 (Flying Cheetah). I would like to congratulate our winners: Li Yawen (李雅雯),Qian Litao (钱力涛)!


We also had very active members in the discussion forum. Special thanks go to Cui Ying (崔莹) and Li Yawen (李雅雯) for your helpful answers and enthusiastic participation during the whole six weeks!

With this course, our openSAP Chinese community grew tremendously, we now count over 17,000 users registered. This course was a great way of starting the year, and openSAP China is ready with a new course: 物联网和智能服务将会如何改变我们的社会 “How the Internet of Things and Smart Service Will Change Society”.

      Hi Elena,

      Thanks for the summary, and for the opportunity to be involved in the delivery of this course. It was an honor to help extend the reach of our BI MOOC to colleagues in China as well. Perhaps next time I will have to learn enough of the language to deliver the summary video in Chinese 🙂
