Preparing BPC for future migration to S/4 Simple Finance

Dear members,

We are preparing our BPC system for a future migration to S/4 simple finance.

Currently we are starting developing in a BW stand-along system, as S/4 Hana will not be done until next year.

Reading OSS Note 2243472, there's something I dont understand.

This note says that we cant change "Master Data Read Access" setting, from default to any other value.

In our current development, master data is read directly from ECC using CL_RSR_REMOTE_MASTERDATA with direct access.

Does the note mean that we cannot continue using such approach?

Or, in the other hand, means that this setting cannot be changed when the IO is imported into S/4 Hana system (future Simple Finance, which will read master data from Hana views)

Thanks in advance

Best Regards,

    Hi Francis,

    If you are planning to use BPC in same box as S/4 HANA then you don't need direct access mode. All Master Data is retrieved via HANA Views.

    Please let me know if this answers your question.

    First of all, BPC is part of SAP BW for 7.50 based on SAP HANA, see -

    As BPC is an Add-On in BW 7.40 and integrated in BW 7.50, nothing has to be done on the Source System at this time.

    Moving to BW/4HANA is not possible before next Year, and the standard/embedded BPC usage case will be supported at this time as well.

    So, until now stick to BW 7.50 on HANA
