AO 2.0, then 2.1? Is there a strategy behind this?


Hello Community,

in the recent weeks i saw many documents, slides and comments about new versions of AO like AO 2.0 and the recently released 2.1. But there seem to be also plans to release AO 2.2? (I can't remember where, but somewhere was written AO 2.2 is planned for Q4/Q1.)

What is the SAP strategy behind this?

From AO 1.4 to 2.0 it took SAP 2 years. Now we will see new releases nearly monthly.

Is this due the convergence with AO and EPM?

Will AO 2.2 contain Live Office or access to universes? (Yes, i know the roadmap)


As a customer this is confusing. Should we move to AO 2.0 or 2.1 or maybe wait for 2.2? Or stay with 1.4?

It would be great if someone can shed some light on this. ;-)

Thanks & BR,
