BPC 10.1 - Does Classic model support all the planning features of Unified?

Dear All,

In BPC 10.1, as you are aware, we have two models - Classic and Unified. I understand that Classic supports consolidation while Unfied does not.

Want to confirm the following:

- if we can use Classic model for planning(I guess it is 'yes')

- If so, can we use all of the planning features(disaggregation, etc ... ) supported by a Unified model?

Pls. clarify on the above.

Thanks,

Peri

    Peri,

    Data disaggregation is a standard feature in BPC 10 on HANA, EPM Addin SP16 and BPC 10.1 Unified Model on HANA EPM Addin SP16.

    You can perform data disaggregation in different ways, depending on the connection you use.

    Data Disaggregation for Planning and Consolidation Connections

    Applies to:

    Planning and Consolidation, version for SAP NetWeaver connections, when SAP HANA is used as the relational database.Provided that the data disaggregation feature is activated on the server side, you can disaggregate data. Data disaggregation can be performed on aggregated values, that is nodes: the values are disaggregated to all the data records of the base-level members that contribute to the aggregated value of the cell. To disaggregate data for a node, in the report, select the cell that contains the data you want disaggregate. Then, select Planning > Disaggregate.

    Note:

    If you have not selected a data cell or if the data cell does not contain any data, a message is displayed, indicating that data disaggregation cannot be performed from the cell you have selected.

    Caution:

    When you perform data disaggregation, the data is automatically saved to the sever. A message that

    warns you about this, is displayed when you select Planning > Disaggregate. If you do not want to

    display this warning message anymore, you can either select the Do not show this message again

    option in the message box or deselect the Display Disaggregation Warning option in the User Options.

    These two options are synchronized, meaning that when the first one in the message box is checked,

    the user option is automatically unchecked.

    PLEASE REFER TO section 33.2.4 Data Dis-aggregation of EPM Addin SP 16 documentation. The above excerpts are taken from the same.

    Regards

    Nikhil

    Peri,

    Yes, you can do planning in the classic mode. The unified mode does not support consolidations, as I understand it.

    Here are some links with information about classic vs unified:

    Unifying BPC NW and BW-IP

    SAP Business Planning and Consolidation 10.1 NW FAQs

    Whats new in SAP BPC 10.1

    This should give you a start. I would not expect the Classic mode to give everything the Unified mode provides, as the Unified mode allows you to leverage HANA more fully.

    Let me know if this correctly answers your question.
