Next Steps in Software Development on SAP HANA


WEEK 1, UNIT 1
00:00:13
Welcome to this new openSAP course: Next Steps in Software Development on SAP HANA.
00:00:19
My name is Thomas Jung and I'm a director, SAP HANA product management.
00:00:23
I'm Rich Heilman, senior product manager, SAP HANA.
00:00:27
We'll be the instructors for this course.
00:00:30
And whether you're new to development on SAP HANA
00:00:36
or whether maybe you attended the first course in this openSAP series,
00:00:41
I think you will find that there's lots of new information and
00:00:46
intermediate and advanced techniques when it comes to doing native development in
SAP HANA.
00:00:51
And that's really what we're going to cover over the next six weeks' worth of
material,
00:00:56
which will comprise recorded lectures, demos, and exercises, with evaluations at
the end of each week.
00:01:07
And then in the seventh week, there will be a final exam where you can accumulate
points from the various tests that will take place
00:01:17
and get a record of achievement.
00:01:20
Now in this, week 1, unit 1, we want to do a little bit of introduction to the
course in general,
00:01:26
but also do a little bit of a review on the general architecture of HANA
00:01:33
and particularly HANA native development.
00:01:38
So this first slide shows us a little bit of a review, as we said.
00:01:42
Some of the materials here may be review from the previous course,
00:01:49
but necessary to jump everybody back in.
00:01:52
This slide is a little busy,
00:01:55
but it does a good job of demonstrating that HANA has evolved to be so much more
than just a database.
00:02:01
In the beginning, we were really focused on HANA as a very fast, in-memory database
00:02:06
for both analytic and transactional processing.
00:02:10
Of course, that's very much the core, the heart, of what HANA still remains.
00:02:15
But over time, as HANA is used in more and more scenarios, we've begun to build out
additional capabilities around HANA.
