Components of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Release Cycle
Explore the two components of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud release cycle:
SAP S/4HANA Cloud Continuous Delivery Release Strategy
Beginning in the year 2022, SAP S/4HANA Cloud moved from a quarterly release cycle to a semi-annual release cycle with regular deliveries between releases. This method is less disruptive to customers to desire more stability and fewer releases, while satisfying early adopter customers who like trying out new features as they roll out. This strategy also enables SAP to quickly react to feedback and improvement requests submitted by customers and partners in the Influence Portal.
Activate New Features via SAP Fiori App
New feature deliveries become available in the Activate New Features SAP Fiori app in the launchpad. An administrator can activate a new feature in the app when it's released, or wait until the next major release, when it will automatically be activated by SAP for all who scope is relevant for the feature.
