SQLScript for SAP BW Consultants

The course “SQLScript for BW Consultants” is the most frequently booked training. Whether on-site in your company,as an open training here in Mannheim oras an online event.

As an SAP BW consultant, use the full potential of the SAP HANA database in your BW/4HANA or BW on HANA system. Learn to write effective SQLScript-code in the AMDP routines of the transformations and use SAP HANA exits for your query variables.

Most problems in BW transformations can be solved much more elegantly and performantly with declarative SQLScript code than with ABAP. The aim of the training is to rethink the participants and to learn how to solve the problems with SQL tools. That’s why I only come up with the concepts of imperative programming in my training SQLScript for advanced users. My experience is that developers tend to replicate the existing ABAP logic 1:1 with imperative coding. This is neither beautiful nor fast. In doing so, one sides the chance to solve the problems much more elegantly with declarative code.

Individual company training courses are the first choice for teams of 4 or more participants. Tailored to your tasks, your system stands and hopefully soon again in your rooms. At the moment, of course, the company training courses take place online. In addition to the described standard scope, the training can of course be customized for you. Additional topics can be added and specific problems from your system can be discussed.

Tailored content

You can set the priorities. Depending on the qualifications and experience already available in your team. And also depending on what is important for your current projects. With in-house training, you can set the direction. Or you can rely on our experiences from other customers.

However, the content planing should not be done ad hoc during the event. It is best to discuss the topics 2-3 weeks in advance by phone or via WebEx. Then I can prepare well and offer you an optimal event.

Your Locations

(At the moment unfortunately only very limited possible)

In-house training can take place in the familiar environment of your employees. This has several advantages. On the one hand, you save your employees the trip. This, of course, eliminates the travel costs and the associated organisational effort. On the other hand, this also offers a high degree of flexibility for the participants. For example, if a heterogeneous group is to be trained, participants can join depending on the level of knowledge and topic.

Your systems

HANA System

Every system is different. When in-house training takes place on your systems, you can count on learning the right version of the development environment, application server, and HANA database. It also allows to take a look at problems from your practice on your systems during the event.

Open training courses are ideal for self-employed people or individual participants from companies. They are held every two months. The programme is fixed, but additional modules will be offered during the training week, which can be booked additionally.
