Development in SAP S/4HANA


SAP Development Key Features


ABAP Development Tools

ABAP development tools (also known as ABAP in Eclipse) enable developers to create robust business applications. These tools support development with efficient and user-friendly functions for code editing, source code search, debugging, and much more.


SAPUI5 Framework

The SAPUI5 framework allows developers to create responsive web-based applications that display optimally on a variety of devices (desktop, tablet, mobile, etc.). It enables easy integration with other SAP products and services and offers a high degree of usability and design flexibility.


Integration Services

SAP offers a range of integration services such as SAP Process Orchestration and SAP Cloud Platform Integration. These services enable developers to orchestrate and automate business processes across different systems, ensuring seamless and efficient business workflows.

Development in SAP S/4HANA for Your Teaching

The SAP UCC provides access to an SAP S/4HANA system that is used by other educational institutions (shared system). A total of up to 250 students can access one client at the same time. An exclusive system is required for larger projects and extended functions such as Advanced ATP, MRP Live, PP-DS, use of the live cache, or access to the SAP HANA database. The pre-installed data of the fictitious model company Global Bike enables a clear demonstration and testing of relevant processes and procedures.

Lecturers have access to teaching materials, ready-made presentations, and exercises that can be used both in teaching and in research projects.

The curriculum is only available in English.
