Yet Another Great Free Course: SAP Business ByDesign Returns on openSAP with Reporting With SAP Business ByDesign

After the success of “Application Development for SAP Business ByDesign”, the SAP Business ByDesign team came back early this year with a new openSAP course “Reporting with SAP Business ByDesign”. While the first one was targeted at application developers, the second, which concluded on February 25, was aimed at business users, in particular analytical key and end users.

In this four week course, Henriette Willhauck, Stefan Kraus, and Knut Heusermann presented how to create a report, starting from the very basic steps. Week after week more advanced functionalities were introduced, for example how to integrate SAP Business ByDesign with Microsoft Excel.

SAP Business ByDesign has role-based reporting functionalities and the course instructors showed the available reporting options for the respective role. Most of the course participants have become familiar with Eddie Smoke and Bob Menson, the key and business users used throughout the demonstrations.

One of the highlights of the course was the system access and additional exercises offered to the students. 11 tenants were organized by the SAP Business ByDesign team and about 1750 new users were created in the reference systems. The discussion forum was widely used by the course participants to interact, report their issues with the exercises, and Thomas Meder did an amazing job supporting all the users.

Let’s hear about the course metrics from Thomas in this video blog. You can also view the key metrics in the infographic below.


The course material remains available on the openSAP platform and you can access and download all videos, transcripts, and additional exercises.

Everyone can enroll and access the learning material. However, you will not be able to complete the weekly assignments or final exam and hence collect points toward a record of achievement.
