Newsbyte: SAP Announces Development Training For New SAP HANA® Platform As "Massive Open Online Course"

WALLDORF, Germany, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced a new online course aimed at software developers seeking introductory knowledge of the SAP HANA® platform. The course, entitled "Introduction to Software Development on SAP HANA," is now open for registration and was designed specifically for programmers seeking an overview of the native programming capabilities of SAP HANA. The course complements the comprehensive training and certification courses for SAP HANA already available from the SAP® Education organization that are delivered online and in training centers worldwide.


"Introduction to Software Development on SAP HANA" will be offered in the "massive open online course," or MOOC, format, which has grown increasingly popular in academia. In a mix of online lectures, self-tests, weekly assignments and online discussion forums, the new course aims to provide an experience similar to traditional classroom training, yet with a greater flexibility for the learner and virtually unlimited scalability for SAP as the course provider. The course is also planned to be rolled out to more than 1,300 universities worldwide via the SAP® University Alliances program.

"The MOOC format provides a great opportunity for developers to get an introduction to SAP HANA and benefit from the flexibility to consume lectures and conduct exercises at their convenience," said Bernd Welz, senior vice president and head of Solution and Knowledge Packaging, SAP. "Participants can appreciate the flexibility to consume the lectures and do the exercises when and where it is most convenient. And to give learners the maximum flexibility, the course lectures can also be viewed on a mobile device or offline."

"The growing demand for SAP HANA knowledge coincides with learning trends that increasingly favor self-study methods," said Markus Schwarz, senior vice president and global head of SAP Education. "Our efforts to enhance our portfolio and provide greater flexibility to learners have gained validation by industry analysts. This new offering provides an ideal stepping stone to the comprehensive and in-depth online learnings offered by SAP Education around SAP HANA and other strategic solutions."

Registration is open to all audiences on the openSAP platform. The six-week course is scheduled to begin May 27, 2013, requiring four hours of study time per week. Course participants who successfully complete their assignments and the final exam will receive a record of achievement confirming that they have taken successful first steps toward becoming an SAP HANA developer.
