FromZeroToCloud – Take the journey with me and became an SAP Cloud Platform expert

In my day by day job, I realize that many SAP experts still had no opportunity to explore SAP Cloud Platform and start their journey to renew their skills. This happens for different reasons: too busy in their daily job, confused on where and how to start their learning journey, not familiar with the innovation, or many others.

This is very sad to me, because there is so much talent out-there that many companies need to be successful in their business, but, most important, to keep innovating and lead the change.

SAP Cloud Platform is a very powerful Platform as a Service solution that offers so many tools and business services, but sometimes it could be scary for old ABAPers to start a new learning journey.

I have been in that situation too, so I want to use my experience in approaching SAP Cloud Platform with other members of the community and share as much information I can to share the value, the flexibility, and the versatility of the SAP Cloud Platform.

There are 20 macro categories of services in the SAP Cloud Platform and most of the time we focus in just one of this service, such as the API Management or SAP Fiori development, but we do not consider how we can get the real power of a Enterprise Business Platform combining these services to easily create Enterprise level cloud applications.

Extend the core with new functionalities, Integrate solution to provide a valuable access to data, Build innovative application to simplify and innovate core processes.

For this reason, I decided to create a video series FromZeroToCloud that wants to explore SAP Cloud Platform capabilities one by one, but not a single service, but more how we can combine different services to deliver the Intelligent Enterprise!

In this series, I start the journey of a new company, a new delivery Pizza shop (who doesn’t like pizza?), that want to embrace the cloud to quickly expand its business and leverage the innovative technologies to become the leader in the market. Starting with one simple application, we will expand or offering, adding more and more functionalities and services for my customers, suppliers and employees, and becoming THE best pizzeria.

    Thank you! This is the best blog i have seen here because I have been following your videos and setting up the environment along with you. No problem so far and the access to an ABAP system via the SCC is very enlightening. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
