SAP launches free online training for HANA, other new technologies

Kris Kanaracus for Inforworld writes:  SAP is hoping to sow more seeds of interest in its newest technologies, including the HANA in-memory database, through a new online training program available at no charge.

Dubbed openSAP, the program’s first course will provide an introduction to developing software on top of HANA, and is scheduled to begin May 27, according to the openSAP website.

It’s not surprising that HANA is openSAP’s first area of focus, given that SAP is positioning it as the go-forward platform for all of its development efforts.

HANA places data in RAM rather than reading it off of disks, delivering performance that SAP has described as astounding. While initially aimed at analytic processing, HANA also supports transactional workloads and has been ported to SAP’s Business Suite.

Future courses could focus on SAP’s mobility software, cloud applications and other areas.
