The new ABAP programming model is based on CDS views for data modelling and access.

CDS views are the next generation Database views and go beyond the limited capability of Database views. CDS views leverage the features of SAP HANA database and helps to push the code from the Application layer to the DB layer.

It forms the basis of the ABAP platform’s modern programming model.

SAP S/4HANA, the next generation business suite, is also based on CDS in the form of the virtual data model (VDM).

This course covers CDS views in depth and will equip the course participants with necessary knowledge required to use CDS view in their projects.
