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 exercise, 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.


  • This course will prepare you to:
  • Understand and put into practice the main advanced modeling capabilities of SAP HANA 2.0 SPS04 in the areas of text search and analysis, graph modeling, spatial analysis and predictive modeling.
  • Promote these advanced modeling capabilities to extend the core SAP HANA Modeling features.
  • Broaden your experience with the modern SAP HANA tooling in XS Advanced (SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA)
