How To Install Your Own SAP Trial System – Free Course

It’s been a busy time over the Christmas period. Wrapping up projects, buying gifts for my kids and even cramming in a few study sessions to learn new skills.

Even though its been busy, I still found time to launch a new FREE SAP course that I want You to get access to.

Free SAP Trial Installation Course

The course shows you Step By Step how to setup your very own SAP Trial system so you can learn new SAP skills, practice ABAP for your exams or just have a tinker around and play in your own SAP system.

You can access the course here.

Please share the course with your friends and colleagues.


Now we are into 2014 let me ask you … What skills are you going to learn or improve on?

For me… I want to learn more about HANA. What do you want?

I know lots of instructors both within the SAP community and outside. If you let me know what you want, I will see if I can get them to give us all a special offer.

        • The introduction of SAP HANA means ABAP programmers need to understand how HANA works in order to make use of it’s speed. If a company you work for uses HANA then you will not only need to learn how to extract data out of a HANA databse using ABAP but you will need to understand how to model data inside HANA using the 3 different types of views. There is lots to learn

            If I am an ABAP developer. Can I still use my ABAP programming skills on SAP HANA? or should start SAP HANA with ABAP?
            if there is SQL and SQLScript in SAP HANA; so why I need ABAP?

          • Here’s the deal….. SAP HANA is a Database that also has HANA specific dev tools to allow you to create stores SQL procedures and database views. Very much like any other programming language working with a 3rd party database, the programming language can ‘call’ the stored SQL procedures so the DB executes the data SQL in it’s own memory using it’s own processor. Once complete, the DB then passes back the results t the calling program to do what ever it wants to do.

            This is how ABAP works with HANA too.

            You can call data in your ABAP program as normal but this may not be very efficient because the normal way ABAP programs work is:

            1) Retrieve the data from the database

            2) Process the data – filter, sort etc…

            Step 2 always runs on the Application server (bot the DB server). So to make use of HANA you need to tell your program to:

            1) Select the data from the DB – using the DB server resources – BUT (and this is the key to improve performance with HANA) make sure to filter, sort etc… on the HANA DB server before returning the data to the calling ABAP program for further processing.

            2) Process the data further.

            Summary: We tell ABAP to do as much data selection/filtering/aggregation as possible on the HANA DB before returning the data to our program for further processing, such as report output.

            So as an ABAP developer, this is what you need to learn… How to created HANA Views on HANA itself and select data from these views in your ABAP program. How to select data from the HANA DB without using views from within your ABAP program (this is just changing the way your write your select statements). How to write stored SQL on HANA if you want to select data that way instead of views.

            Obviously there is more to it, but this gives you the jist of it.
