Business Suite Unlocked: Your TechEd Business Suite and S/4HANA Extensibility Curriculum

/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/274659_l_srgb_s_gl_764730.jpgWhat would you do to your existing Business Suite solutions if you could extend them in any way you wanted?

Would you extend their reach to new and mobile users? Evolve to a responsive UI; add fields and customize forms? Translate into additional languages? Implement new variants of business processes? Add a feedback form to your learning map? Add gamification into your Help Desk; introduce a side-by-side app showing actual water flow levels for your utility? Productize entirely new B2E, B2B, or B2C scenarios?

Do you want to know about one of the most relevant technology innovations for business at TechEd 2015?

HANA Cloud Platform product management will be on-hand at TechEd 2015 to answer these questions and help you evolve your career path with a series of sessions on Business Suite and S/4HANA extensibility.

Extensibility:  The Key to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform

As SAP customers and developers, you know that using extensions creates a competitive advantage in your respective markets.  To this end, you may be already heavily relying on professional developers and a rich ecosystem partners large and small.  On the SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP), we continue to add new technologies to increase this flexibility and add value to standard SAP solutions.

Unlocking the Business Suite

Given that the Business Suite is core to SAP and almost all SAP customers, there are several ways that HCP supports writing extensions to Business Suite solutions with, for example, Gateway, Cloud Connector, security services, Cloud Identity, SAPUI5, and Fiori. At TechEd, you’ll be able to formulate a curriculum of all of these extension technologies and more.

Extensibility + Business Suite = S/4HANA Extensibility on HCP

S/4 HANA Extensibility, combining HCP with ABAP technology for on-premise and cloud editions of S/4HANA, will be a major focus topic at TechEd. For a sneak peek inside this new functionality, have a look at this white paper, which details the approach called side-by-side extensibility using HCP and in-app extensibility using key user tools and ABAP.
