Will BPC 10.0 for NW continue to be supported after upgrade to SAP BW 750

We are current running SAP BPC for NW 10.0 SP17 running on SAP BW 740 SP12. We are considering upgrading NW and SAP BW to 750 next year to the latest SP along with an upgrade of our HANA platform to 1.0 SPS12.

We do not have a real business case to move to BPC 10.1 to leverage unified planning models and level IP functionality. But the question remains whether BPC 10.0 for NW will be supported by SAP BW 750.

I have reviewed the PAM documents for both SAP BW 750 as well as the same for SAP BPC 10.0, however, could not find a conclusive answer to my question.

    Thanks Gersh and Vadim for your inputs. I get the point that we need to upgrade BPC to a version that is compatible with BW 7.5. I came across the SAP Note 2240726 BPC NW 7.5 and 10 versions will not support Netweaver 7.50 which answer my original question.

    Regards

    In general for standard models there is no big difference between 10 and 10.1. Upgrade is absolutely easy.

    Hi Zubin,

    You are using now BPCPMB software component on top of BW 7.4. In BW 7.5 there is no such component and BPC is part of BW, so you'll have to upgrade to version of BPC that comes with BW 7.5 if you want to go to BW 7.5. Moreover in 7.5 you can upgrade BPC SP separately from BW SP since BPC is part of BW.

    Regards,

    Gersh

    Hi,

    Yes. Once the BPC Add-On is installed on 7.40 you can continue working with the standard Model in 7.50

    Best Regards Roland
