Can my BPC can handle new users?

Hi BPC Gurus,

I am expecting new users on our BPC. I spent some time reading about sizing but finally I got lost. What are the first steps that I should take to evaluate if our BPC and handle the users?

Any help is appreciated.

      Hi Ark,

      You should ask how many user was the current BPC system designed for, maybe they have the answer for you already.

      important questions will be

      1. how many concurrent user will be on the system

      2. how many standard users and how many power users, (standard as in use reports and input sheets, power as in running packages)

      3. logics in script logic or ABAP?

      4. are there many calculations?

      your system will take a hit when user refresh input sheets or report at the same time, or running the calculation at the same time.

    Hello Ashok,

    The sizing will depend on many things, as Ark listed. It also depends on your usage of BPC. For example do you load master and transaction data frequently or do you mostly send data and retrieve data.

    1. Do you execute default logic when sending data and if so the complexity of the logic
    2. Do you run optimization regularly?
    3. Do you have many security profiles
    4. Do you have large volume of work status.

    Items 3 and 4 are important because many operations will check security profiles and work status which could result in significant performance issues.
