Upgrade to NW731 with BPC 10


we are using BPC 75 for Netweaver , connected to a BI 701.

I should perform the upgrade to NW 731. The goal is to get the latest BPC 10.

According the documentation I read, the BPC middleware based on .NET Windows server it is not required anymore; as I understood the new BPC 10 should be all inside the BI system based on Nw 73.

The question is the following:

our BI system is connected to a Java only instance, Nw 701 too, where are installed components like ADS, EP .....and used to publish BI reports.

I would like to clarify If it's mandatory to upgrade the Java instance too to Nw 731, or it can continue to work as it is now.

Maybe there are Java components for the BPC 10 ?

That's not explained into the documentation I read.

    Hi Roberto! You only need ABAP AS, don't need JAVA for BPC to run.

    On the screenshot is the typical list of components to be installed on NW server (ignore release and sp levels, you'll have 731 and ignore ST-PI and GRC plug in ).

      I have another question related to the BI upgrade and BPC 10 .

      Actually the BPC's 7.5 end users are using a specific client .

      What is going to change with the new BPC 10 included into the Abap stack for the end-users ?

      Something has to be installed locally on their Pc ?

    Hi Roberto,

    For BPC, you wont require anything apart from NW7.3. However, the components required for NW7.3 should be checked separately, and for that I guess you should post the question in the NW forum.
