Release Information


  • Pre-Release: This is a two-week period prior to the general availability of the next major release (18R1, 17R1, etc.). During this period, customers can explore the new features in a vault based on their production vault configurations.

Release Numbering

In this release (17R1 or V17), we’re moving all Veeva products to a consistent numbering system based on the calendar year. 17R1 indicates that this is the first release of the 2017 calendar year. 

AWS Migration

As part of our commitment to ongoing innovation and customer success, Veeva will be moving its worldwide computing infrastructure from managed data centers to the Veeva virtual private cloud (VPC) running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This will begin in the second half of 2017 across all Veeva product lines. See AWS Migration FAQ.
