The course starts with a holistic view to the Internet of Things with guest speakers from Intel, Deloitte, Blue Ocean Systems & XMPro, and, walkthroughs on a multitude of IoT use cases. You will then explore SAP’s IoT strategy and learn how SAP’s HANA Cloud Platform can help you jumpstart your own involvement in IoT. The learning journey continues to a ‘hands on’ with free tools and resources for your choice of an IoT use case and an opportunity to participate in a prototyping ‘challenge” with an anonymous peer feedback and a chance to get listed in a gallery of top-rated prototypes.

As a part of the IoT ‘hands on’ learning journey, you get to play with BUILD – a new design tool for non-technical users that can help you design lo-fi and hi-fi prototypes with innovative design tool set, access to templates and best practices, easy sharing, feedback and consumption via heat map visualizations and notes.
