  • Kurzbeschreibung

    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, at best Java EE and HTML5/CSS. Participating in the lecture IS 615 highly is recommended but no formal prerequisite.

    The goal of this term project is to develop a business model and to implement a software application to solve a real world problem in a student development team environment. We offer a project-based class with hands-on experience on applying Scrum, agile software engineering practices as well as design thinking. Students will learn innovative software product design and development that can be directly applied in a term project.

    The technology applied may be SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP). The latest openSAP courses give a profound introduction and advanced development practice on HCP. Moreover, state-of-the-art agile software engineering practices will be introduced in parallel as part of the IS 615 lecture. Subsequently, students will develop a real case software application in teams over several development sprints.

    Agile software development and design thinking are based on iterative and close customer collaboration. Therefore we provide real 'customers' with whom the students run a design thinking workshop and iteratively develop applications about a topic e.g. Effort Management, Social Media Analytics, Rule-based Intelligent Automation, VIP Visitor Experience,  SAP HANA Express for Non-Profit Organizations and Orderpoint Management.
