Course announcements

  • This course builds on top of the SAP Hybris Commerce Back Office Framework Fundamentals online training (HY460E) and leads into details of development of a back office application on top of the platform. Participants learn how to work with the framework’s capabilities to build generic, extensible applications.
  • The course consists approximately of 30% lecture and 70% hands-on training. The hands-on part is delivered through a sample project, called the Book Management Cockpit. The participants will make a new backoffice cockpit for a book store that has been prepopulated with test data. This cockpit will then be gradually developed and improved throughout the exercises by the students.
  • HY465 simulates the real-world process of using the Backoffice Framework to effectively build a back office application, by leveraging Backoffice elements such as widgets and actions, and defining the configuration needed to connect them. The point of the hands-on process is to understand the SAP Hybris blueprint for building custom Backoffice applications.
  • Only SAP Hybris customers and partners will have access to the SAP download center whereby they can install SAP Hybris software. All others have to use WTS.
  • If you are an SAP Hybris customer or partner we recommend that you use your own machine for the best training experience. Please note the technical equipment requirements for training delegates on this course via this link.
  • If you are not an official SAP Hybris partner or customer, you cannot access the SAP Hybris Commerce Help documentation or the SAP Hybris Wiki.
