SAP will start the new year by adding four new courses to its openSAP platform, to help users identify the best time to move to SAP S/4HANA, focus on the principles of data science, simplify screens and explore financials with the SAP Business ByDesign solution.
The new courses will be:
- Find Your Path to SAP S/4HANA: The course will help existing and potential customers and partners answer the questions of why, what and how to simplify with a digital core. Experts from product management and co-innovation for SAP S/4HANA will explain the fundamentals of the journey to adopt S/4HANA and explain processes for new implementation, system conversion and landscape transformation.
- Getting Started with Data Science: This course will introduce learners to the fundamentals of data preparation, predictive modelling, data science and the deployment and maintenance of models in a business environment following an established project methodology.
- Introduction to SAP Screen Personas software: SAP Screen Personas 3.0 allows IT professionals and SAP experts to simplify classic enterprise resource planning (ERP) screens for SAP ERP Central Component, SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA, and SAP S/4HANA, and the course will provide training on how to use the software to simplify screens and build simple ‘flavours’.
- SAP Business ByDesign Financials: This course explains the major concepts of the financial area and demonstrates these using the Business ByDesign software.SAP reports that in 2016, the platform increased course enrolments by 21.7 per cent to around 600,000 enrolments, bringing total enrolments to over 1.6 million. Over 150,000 learners signed up for openSAP in 2016, an increase of 53 per cent from the end of 2015.
“Going into its fourth year, openSAP again increased its user base significantly, and more people use it to stay on top of SAP product and cloud innovations than ever before,” said Dr Bernd Welz, executive vice president and chief knowledge officer, products and innovation, SAP.
“With openSAP in combination with SAP Learning Hub, which provides on-demand access to learning content covering all SAP solutions in great detail, it has become easy for busy professionals to keep their knowledge up-to-date.”
