Course information

SAP Screen Personas 3.0 is a personalization framework integrated into the SAP GUI family. It allows IT professionals and SAP experts to simplify SAP GUI screens (built on SAP’s Dynpro rendering technology). Dynpro technology is used for the majority of classic SAP ERP screens.

This course provides you with training on how to create consumer-grade screens. Simpler screens allow users to streamline business processes quickly and easily, leading to improved end-user productivity and satisfaction. This course is eighty percent hands-on, so participants can see how to develop and maintain Screen Personas flavors. The course will also cover core administration tasks, including how to share flavors within their organizations.

Development Systems

If your primary interest in taking this course is simply to familiarize yourself with the technical development-related necessities and capabilities of SAP Screen Personas, you do not need access to a development system.

However, we realize that many of you will be interested in developing your own scenarios, based on the instructions in the course. For the purpose of this course, we will deploy an SAP appliance onto an Amazon Web Service account, which will incur a charge. We will provide a detailed guide with instructions on how to set up an account in week 1 as a precursor to the optional exercises.
