The next major release of SAP Predictive Analytics (3.x product line) is currently planned to be released in the second half of 2016.
SAP plans to remove Solaris operating system support in this major release, in order to speed up product innovation deliveries on other operating systems, including Windows 64-bits and Linux.
The last SAP Predictive Analytics release that will provide Solaris operating system support is a minor release (version 2.5, part of the 2.x product line) that should be released during the first quarter of the year 2016.
For customers who wish to continue using SAP Predictive Analytics (SAP InfiniteInsight) on Solaris operating system, the end of mainstream maintenance dates are the following :
- For SAP InfiniteInsight 7.x for Solaris : December 31st, 2018
- SAP Predictive Analytics 2.x for Solaris : February 10th, 2017
To take advantage of the new features of SAP Predictive Analytics 3.x, we recommend you to contact your customer support and adopt one of the supported operating systems (same as the current PAM with the exception of Solaris).
