How sap bpc work with sap bw

Hello expert,

I am preparing to install sap bpc 10 for netwaver BW.

I have read the master guide and install guide.

But,there is still a big concern:

How sap BPC collaborate with SAP BW?

Shall I made some connection like RFC/SM59 etc between BPC and BW?

I am preparing to install sap bpc on the same machine with sap bw.

    Hi Liu,

    While installing BPC, itself name space will be created in BI/BW. . All BPC dimensions, members you can see in RSA1 bw side with name space /CPMB/.....

    whatever you create at BPC side, those will automatically installed in BI.

    regarding RFC And others you better to ask basis forum or in BPC forum, Think so

    • Hi Nilanjan,

      Any operation I do from BPC side like lite optimize or change in data is not being reflected on BW/HANA side. I checked SM37, SLG1 etc and see no activity at all on back end. Though on EPM side all activities can be seen in the package view status. Can you please help to diagnose this. Thank you!

    Hi @Xiaofang Liu,

    After installing BPC on top of BW you have to activate it, to utilize the bpc functionality. And also you have to install epm addin to use this from excel

    Reason for installing BPC on top of BW is BPC does not have any Data ware house capability where in BW provide that capability to BPC,











    Table is the relation between BPC and BW naming wise,

    Naming convention of BPC created dimension or model starts with

    /B28/ where as BW created Infocube or characteristic starts with starts with /BIC/

    To know whether bpc is installed on top of BW, Login to the BW --> go to System --> go to Status and click on the magnifier image below component version below window will be appeared
