BPC MS or NW

Hi,

We are going to carry out a migration from an MS 7.5 version to a 10.1 or perhaps an 11.0 version, but our client insists on continuing using the MS version, even having SAP ECC on their systems. We are trying to find clear and concise documentation from SAP where the need / recommendation to implement NW versions is emphasized, since from version 11.0 perhaps no more BPC will be developed that support MS version (perhaps, we are not sure on this...), and surely in the long term, there is no choice than migrate to NW.

We know differences between NW and MS, and we can give them some feedback about the negative aspects on keep going on a MS version, but i'm looking for more info/papers/documentation/notes from SAP.

If someone has information about it, I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

    Some common sense point:

    Migration from 7.5 to 1X will require complete redesign of all reports and input forms - huge project!

    For the rest there is a tool to migrate MS 7.5 to NW 7.5 (ask SAP). Then you can migrate NW 7.5 to NW 1X

    Hello,

    BPC11 uses BW4HANA, as far as I know BW4HANA and HANA are not optional. As of now all of our training for BPC includes BW4HANA and HANA. Therefore, if your client wishes to continue migration/upgrade to BPC11 I think there is only one choice and that is BPC NW.

    Best Regards,

      Hi,

      Thanks for the answer Leila.

      As an SAP worker, I am concerned that you are not sure if BPC 11.0 only works in NW, If SAP doesn't know, imagine me...

      The same doubt that you have, is the one that I'm trying to solve. I can not go to a demonstration on a client and say, I think, maybe... I need something from the software developer that make a clear recommendation on what to do.

      Best Regards¡

      Jose.

    totally there are five versions of BPC that are currently available in the market and customers should choose a suitable version according to their existing infrastructure and planning needs. If customers do not have the SAP platform or a matured SAP platform, it is advisable for them to use SAP BPC 10.1 for Microsoft. If customers have a mature BW system running on HANA, they should go for SAP BPC 10.1 NW Embedded. And if the existing BW system is not running on HANA, SAP BPC 10.1 NW Standard would be an ideal choice. If the customers have S/4 HANA, SAP BPC Optimized for S/4HANA would be the right choice. If the customers have deployed BW/4HANA to harvest the benefits such as high performance in-memory processing, SQL based enterprise data warehouse (EDW), the latest user interfaces and simplified data structures, they should go for SAP BPC 11.0 for BW/4HANA.
