This course is designed for students of the Mannheim Master in Management or the Master's program in Business Informatics. The participants are required to have programming skills in Java SE, ideally Java EE and Spring as well as HTML5/
Participating in the lecture IS 615 is a prerequisite. The goal of this term project is to solve a real world problem of an industry partner (e.g. with SAP, Robert Bosch GmbH, Heidelberg Cement and many others in the past) in a student development team environment. The assignment includes developing a business model and implementing a software application
To form and prepare the teams, we offer a project-based class with hands-on experience in applying the Scrum framework, agile software engineering as well as design thinking and business model innovation practices. Students in this class will learn how to innovate applying customer-centered software product design and development methods directly in their term project.
The preferred technology to be applied is SAP Cloud Platform (SCP). The latest openSAP courses give a profound introduction and advanced development practice on SCP. Moreover, state-of-the-art agile software engineering practices will be introduced in parallel as part of the IS 615 lecture and the IS 613 weekly sprint reviews. Iteratively, students will develop a real cloud based software application in their teams over 5 development sprints.
Design thinking as well as Lean and Agile software development are based on iterative and close customer collaboration. Therefore we provide real 'customers' with whom the students interact during a design thinking workshop, conduct user interviews, and collect feedback to iteratively develop their applications and solving the problem, e.g. Effort Management, Social Media Analytics, Rule-based Intelligent Automation, a VIP Visitor Experience for anyone, SAP HANA Express for Non-Profit Organizations or Order Point Management, for instance.
The course IS 615 must have been successfully passed in a previous semester or at the exam in October 2023! Without passed exam in IS 615 no course participation is possible!
