LSA (Learning System Access): Yet Another Way to Learn SAP Commerce Cloud
On behalf of the CRM & CX Product Learning CoE Team, it is my pleasure to introduce you in this blog post to the LSA offerings of SAP Commerce Cloud.
What is it about?
Whether you are a business consultant/analyst or a technical developer, we have been offering different Instructor Led Trainings (ILTs), either on-site or remote (VLC/virtual live classroom), to meet your role specific learning needs.
Some of the popular training offerings are:
However, all these ILTs require participants to take dedicated period of time, usually days to attend them. What if you don’t have the dedicated time, but still want to learn SAP Commerce Cloud?
For the theoretical content, various E-Learning courses, handbooks or even related videos are provided, you can find more details in this blog post.
But there remains one problem here: only knowing the theory without practice or hands-on exercises doesn’t make the learning complete.
No worry, SAP Learning System Access (LSA, also known as Live Access) provides you with access to live, fully configured and supported SAP training systems to carry out exercises from within the training content, and experiment beyond.
Therefore, we also offer dedicated LSAs for you to learn SAP Commerce Cloud and let’s talk about them next.
Who is SAP Commerce Cloud LSA for?
Business consultants/analysts, technical consultants/developers, or anyone who wants to learn SAP Commerce Cloud, but have no dedicated time to attend ILTs, yet still wants to have some hands-on experiences using SAP Commerce Cloud.
What does a SAP Commerce Cloud LSA offer?
- A live, pre-configured SAP VM with a ready-to-run SAP Commerce Server
- Learning material on the VM as in normal ILT but used for self-study. This includes:
- pdfs of presentation slides of the ILT, covering the theory of specific concepts
- stey-by-step exercise pdfs for walking through the learning journey
- Specifically for technical training LSA:
- pre-installed and configured IDE (Integrated Development Environment, such as Eclipse)
- source code of the exercises and corresponding solutions
- Further general features of a SAP LSA included (details here)
