How to manage and promote the content; guidelines, for lifecycle management and content management in SAP Analytics Cloud.
You can see above software update and hardware/infrastructure update is SAP’s responsibility with SAP Analytics Cloud
Customer decides which data to connect to
System governance is an important consideration; could be self service lead by the business
When you purchase SAP Analytics Cloud, you buy a production tenant
You can buy test tenants
New is preview tenant; allows customers to try enhanced features and test them before GA across other landscapes
These are SAP recommendations
SAP recommends a test tenant in multi data source landscapes
Data import is more challenging on a single tenant
Smaller deployments, and add dev/test as complexities increase
Available at extra cost
Take content from test or development and preview tenant
Cannot use preview tenant as you can’t move it to production
My Files folder is a staging folder for public folders
When teams are created, customer has option to create
Samples and business content are activated, activated under public folder
General overview of relationships between security and folders and content
Recommendation is not use the out of the box roles but use templates
Out of the box roles have wide authorizations
Another way is to save to public folders
Question : How SAC is handling , translation of data content in different language (ex. to display the the text in french or English of the dimension COUNTRY ). Do we need to maintain 2 model and 2 story ?
It will depend on your data source. For an SAP Data Source such as SAP HANA there are options to leverage the language capabilities of the data source to display various languages. More info for SAP HANA connection at https://help.sap.com/doc/00f68c2e08b941f081002fd3691d86a7/release/en-US/58c890e1c89d41e69b2cec31bac2d95f.htmlunder Default Language
we use import data datasoure to BW bex query
for import from BW the language is specified in the connection so for each model only one language is imported. To have the same data available in multiple languages you require a connection, model and story for each language.
Importing data will support only 8lakhs records only, if I have more than 8lakhs what will happen?
You can load data in batches of 800k records. More info on this is available at: https://help.sap.com/doc/00f68c2e08b941f081002fd3691d86a7/release/en-US/6aa6a99d4eb5467896c4fd47bc9c7642.html
How to maintain delta loads?
How do you handle if we have multiple BW systems(dev, qa, pre-prod and prod) and we have one SAC tenant
For import connections you would have a connection and model for each BW system.
Can you delay wave being applied to production if there is an issue found in the preview tenant testing?
The recommendation is to immediately report the issue to SAP via your preferred Support channel (https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#incident/solution) and SAP will make a call on the best approach to fix the issue in or before production.
I have a BW system for Dev, Test, and Production. Can I have a SAC tenant for each — resulting in 3 tenants?
Yes you can purchase a subscription to as many tenants of SAP Analytics Cloud as you require for your scenario.
If there are multiple models that I have to move from test tenant to production tenant, do I have to manually change the connection for each model to point from BW test to BW Prod?
you can export and import connections from one tenant to another and then change the BW system they point to. Many models can use the same connection so the number of connections will indicate the amount of manual work needed.
How will active directory groups be loaded into SAC?
there is information on this at https://help.sap.com/doc/00f68c2e08b941f081002fd3691d86a7/release/en-US/933a484d6a0c4f8cb74a18154d7e7e51.htmland https://blogs.sap.com/2016/06/10/how-to-setup-saml-with-activedirectory-adfs/

Can you please elaborate about user licenses impact of having single tenant Vs Prod,QA & Dev
licenses are independent per tenant. So for each tenant you need 1 or more licenses.
