Course information

In this course, you’ll learn the key concepts of enterprise cloud computing. You don’t require much prior knowledge to attend the course and you’ll experience it like a student in the lecture hall. All the sessions were recorded during Prof. Hasso Plattner’s Trends and Concepts lecture at the HPI, 2020. Starting with the fundamental difference between cloud models ranging from IaaS to SaaS, through technical concepts such as containerization and workflow engines, and ending with an outlook into possible future directions, you’ll get a comprehensive overview of current developments in enterprise cloud computing. This background knowledge in a nutshell is complemented by a hands-on tutorial offering you insights into SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) and its Cloud Foundry and Kyma runtimes.

After completing this course, you’ll have developed a solid understanding of the fundamental approaches and technologies in cloud computing and have gained hands-on experience with the latest cloud environments in SAP Business Technology Platform.
