This five-day instructor-led course teaches the core capabilities of SAP HANA for modeling, and covers mainly graphical modeling, which is illustrated by the SAP HANA Live virtual data model, as well as SQL-based modeling, mainly table functions and procedures, with a focus on performance. It also introduces Core Data Services as a flexible method to model a persistence layer.

The participants will gain knowledge about the management of modeling content in the SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA, and the key principles of object and data access security in a modeling context.
