Currently our client is using S4HANA version 15 and now planning to upgrade to version 17 which is the latest one.

They have developed models and stories using SAP Analytics Cloud (BOC).

Will there be any impact on the existing stories or cloud environment w.r.t. S4HANA upgrade?

Kindly let us know.

Hi Kiran,

In theory, the customer's content is safe in SAC and will continue to work unhindered after the maintenance is complete. In terms of product compatibility, system requirements are met etc.

In practice, because your customer is upgrading an S/4 ABAP on-premise edition, chances are that the update on the S/4 side could have some hiccups along the way.

You know, the usual stuff will need to be tested like at first like: can we connect from SAC to the S4 client ?

But i would have thought that the focus would need to be especially on the S/4 side:- are there any artefacts in S/4 landscape that need to be reactivated? things like: are the standard contents updated OK, are views generated OK, abap components installed ok? etc. Any additional customizing/additional settings/ file permissions need to be checked on the Hana side?

Kind regards, H
