The SAP Business Intelligence Statement of Direction (SoD) is our public guidance for the strategic product directions of SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP BusinessObjects. It is focused on business intelligence. The SoD is public and can be found here.

Listening to customer needs, and also carefully following market evolutions, we see a need to further finetune our product direction in the SoD.

The below sections have been added or updated in the document. All updates – including the new addendums – can be accessed from within the central SoD.

  • updates to central section of SoD with updates on latest releases i.e. SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.3SP1

  • various updates to the FAQ that accompanies the SoD, primarily on the extended maintenance of Lumira Designer to 2027.

  • addendum SAP BusinessObjects with more details on the investment areas and support packages for SAP BusinessObjects BI suite. The addendum is accessible through the central SoD or directly via this link.

  • Updated addendum SAP BusinessObjects maintenance strategy for SAP BI On Premise. It also includes the Maintenance Release Roadmap and forward-fit strategy. The addendum is accessible through the SoD or directly via this link

As SAP we feel very happy with this refined direction. We look forward to any feedback you have and very happy to answer your questions or queries via this community or email on
