With 2023.QRC2

The Generic Analysis is based on the so-called “classic mode”, not the optimized view mode. No further updates have been planned for Generic Analysis. There are also no plans to ship the Generic Analysis for optimized mode.

Once the Data Analyzer (see below) can offer the functionality of the Generic Analysis, this Analytical Application will be deprecated and is not more available via SAP Analytic Cloud Content Network. Content in your system will not be affected by the deprecation.

For details, please follow the SAP Roadmap Explorer 
here. You can easily access Data Analyzer through the product menu now.


With 2021.QRC1 we provide the new sample content for Ready-to-Run Applications, in the SAP Analytics Cloud Content Network.

Generic Analysis

The Generic Analysis is a configurable ready-to-run application in SAP Analytics Cloud for flexible ad hoc analysis of SAC model. It contains a table view, a filter area and a toolbar for different actions, e.g. Print, Bookmark or Table settings.

The Generic Analysis Application has no SAC model assigned by default. You can keep the application as it is, execute it and then assign a SAC model at runtime by choosing a model in the Model Browser dialog or by enhancing the application URL in the Web browser.


Please take a look at the blog SAP Analytics Cloud: Generic Analysis Overview.

With 2021.QRC2, we provide the a new feature for the Generic Analysis application to set e.g. variable and/or filter values ​​via URL parameters.
