Course announcements

  • This course provides advanced knowledge and practical experience on several topics that are included in, or connected to, the scope of the modeler role. Its purpose is to take a step further, beyond the core modeling knowledge from HA300, and to demonstrate how applications powered by SAP HANA can benefit from innovations such as Spatial Data Storage and Processing, Text Search and Analysis, Predictive Analysis and Graph Modeling.
  • The course is supported by many demos and exercises, which demonstrate the advanced modeling capabilities in several scenarios. For example, working with classical schemas or HDI containers in XS Advanced, using the SQL console, developing graphical models. Some of the proposed case studies blend together several modeling capabilities, such as text with spatial, or text with graph.
  • An introduction to SAP HANA Series Data is also provided.
