In the past 1 to 2 years we have heard a lot about SAP's roadmap for the product portfolio for planning and consolidation solutions. In particular, we have heard that Group Reporting for consolidation and Sap Analytics Cloud for planning were the solutions for the future. And they still are. We only heard changing messages about SAP BPC. Messages ranging from "SAP BPC has no future" and "BPC is supported for the time being" to "BPC is still a great tool to start with". There were also end dates known for the Support and Extended Maintenance of all BPC products.
