SAP Analytics Cloud Fast Track Release Notes 2022.2

Posted by Xavier Hacking

As SAP decided to stop publicly sharing the SAP Analytics Cloud Fast Track release notes with Quarterly Release Cycle customers, I’ll just share them here on my blog for those of you who are interested on what’s coming up.

UPDATE: SAP reverted the decision and is sharing the release notes again! 🎉

SAP Analytics Cloud Version 2022.2 Release Notes

General

  • It’s now possible to add additional hierarchies to the account dimension of your models. You can either model your hierarchies manually in SAP Analytics Cloud data modeling or directly import from your source system. This brings you not only more capabilities in data modeling but allows also for more flexibility in designing your planning and analytical assets, in Stories as well as in Analytics Designer.

    Multiple account hierarchies are useful if you want to aggregate the values of your accounts differently according to your planning and analytical needs. You could, for instance, create dedicated hierarchies for specific accounting standards (for example, IFRS versus non-IFRS). Or you could define hierarchies that are only for specific reports (for example, OPEX versus Profit & Loss report) while others are used in planning processes to collect data.Planning-specific features, such as Validation Rules or Data Actions, are capable of consuming multiple account hierarchies and will benefit from this feature as well.

Stories

  • You can now use SAP Analytics Cloud to save BW Query variants.
  • You can now manually export stories to PDF format from Optimized View Mode. You have these export options:
    • Insert Appendix
    • Export All Pages OR Range

Mobile

  • The Android App now supports proxy settings pushed through MDM tools.
