  • Does my Partner Test & Demo system have the same SLA as a production SAC system?
  • Are there planned schedules available when SAP Analytics Cloud gets updated?

As stated, in the SAP Cloud Services Partner Test and Demonstration License agreement:

  • Partner is not permitted to use the Cloud Service productively nor may Partner provide third parties access to the Cloud Service for productive use.
  • Partner may not connect the Cloud Service to a productive IT environment.
  • Furthermore, Partner may not use the Cloud Service for preparation of productive use by a prospective customer of Partner.

In addition:

The Service Level Agreement (SLA) for SAP Cloud Services sets forth the System Availability Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) for the productive version of the applicable SAP Cloud Services to which partner has subscribed (“SAP Cloud Services”) in an Order Form with SAP, since the Partner Test & Demo system is NOT a productive system, SAP intends to meet the SLA referenced in the Product-Specific Supplements and the Service Level Agreement for SAP Cloud Services, however such service levels shall not be binding upon SAP and the Partner shall have no claims against SAP under this Agreement.
