BPC 10.1 was released in 2014. Is your company currently running SAP BPC version 10.0 and are you wondering whether you should upgrade to 10.1? We have looked into this subject and want to share the following findings:
Compared to the previous release, BPC 10.1 encompasses little changes.
In the section below an elaboration on the changes per version is included.
It is wise to be in line with the latest releases to incorporate for example the latest bug fixes, to avoid major upgrades, or the risk that a version is no longer compatible. E.g. Microsoft Office version is no longer supported by SAP.
It should be taken into account that an BPC NetWeaver upgrade might have an impact on the BW architecture. A compatibility check can be done with the SAP Product Availability Matrix (PAM) which is available in the SAP Support Site.
Compared to the previous release, BPC 10.1 encompasses only little functional and technical changes. The upgrade from 10.0 to 10.1 is relatively small and therefore doesn’t come with major investments. Therefore, it is worth to consider if the upgrade is beneficial for your organization.
