Welcome

Hi everyone,

our openSAP course SAP HANA Cloud Platform Essentials (Repeat) started two weeks ago, on February 7th 2017, and ends on March 29th 2017. It’s a 6 week course followed by another week for the final exam. The document openSAP course guide – SAP HANA Cloud Platform Essentials (Repeat) gives an overview over the course and has the links to all the week guides. This blog post you are reading just now will guide you through week 3 of the course and provide you with additional material, explanations or FAQ around the topic of the week. Depending on the feedback and questions inside the forum of the course I might also add additional material (e.g. videos) during and after the course to address the frequently asked questions so that you have a one-stop-shop for this course. I hope you will enjoy the week!
