The Release Cycle of SAP Analytics Cloud in 2024

SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) is SAP’s cloud-based Business Intelligence platform that provides a range of analytics and reporting-tools. It is a fast-evolving product, which gets updated frequently.

In this blog, Kris van Brouwershaven explains the release-cycle for SAC and what to expect in 2024. Kris is working with McCoy & Partners since October 2020 and is specialized in SAC.

SAP Analytics Cloud works using different types of releases, from high to low frequency:

Minor Releases – Biweekly

  • These releases are only available for SAP Analytics Cloud FastTrack Customers. You can find the details per release on the official

Feature Deliveries – Monthly

  • These features have no impact on customers, who also should not need to prepare or take action for them. The changes proposed in these deliveries should have zero impact and must be virtually invisible to the end user.

Major Releases – Quarterly

  • These customer-impacting releases combine the usually between 4 and 7 releases for the FastTrack-customers into one big release. These releases are already planned for the entire year, and it follows the Harmonized Release Calendar for SAP Cloud Products.

When will SAP Analytics Cloud update in 2024?

The Minor- and Feature Releases are the least significant for the customers. For this reason, they will be left out of the following overview.

The Major Releases are displayed in Orange:

  • QRC Q1 2024 release – February 16th – 18th

  • QRC Q2 2024 release – May 17th – 19th

  • QRC Q3 2024 release – August 16th – 18th

  • QRC Q4 2024 release – November 15th – 17th

What will be in these QRC-releases?

These Major Releases are a combination of several Minor Releases, of which the number will differ per Major Release.

We will keep you updated on the SAP Analytics Cloud updates. The week after every Major Release, we will test all new features and write a blog to explain everything between the release’s best new features and it’s missed opportunities.
