Question on Limitations of BPM in NW 7.2 versus 7.31


Our customer is interested in implementing BPM for their SAP PLM implementation.

They are currently on netweaver 7.2.

They are not able to upgrade to Netweaver 7.31 at this time.

Can anyone explain any limitations on what is possible in BPM, if the customer must stay on Netweaver 7.2 with support packages, versus what is possible after upgrading to Netweaver 7.31.

Any information greatly appreciated!

    Hello James,

    BPM is now at SP10 for NW 7.31 and SP5 for NW 7.40. Between 7.20 and the current SP levels of 7.31 and 7.40 there are quite a few enhancements. We don't typically keep a differences list between specific SP levels, rather the differences are discussed in the release notes for each SP. You can find the accumulated release notes on

    Yes, this means you have to check multiple release notes, but really this is the best way to get a comprehensive and detailed list of the new features, enhancements, and changes.

    For 7.31 start here: SAP NetWeaver 7.3 – SAP Help Portal Page

    For 7.40 start here: SAP NetWeaver 7.4 – SAP Help Portal Page

    In each case then drill down the "What's New - Release Notes link". You will find for each of the available components such as BPM, BRM, Process Integration, Developer Studio, etc... and then further detail in the sections that get to very specific features and enhancements.

    While it may be convenient to have a 'big picture' list, in reality that list would be quite simple (high level) and not suitable for a thorough analysis.

    best regards, Nick
