With the release of SAP BW 7.50 last year, you will notice there are no CPMBPC / HANABPC Add-ons installed with your BPC 10.1 (standard or embedded) system. This was not a mistake but rather a design choice to simplify the SAP stack. Now the CPMBPC and HANABPC Add-ons have been merged into SAP BW 7.50. Therefore, a BPC 10.1 standard model will not require any additional Add-On installations. Please note: You will still need to buy a BPC 10.1 license. See slide 4 of SAP BPC 10.1, version for SAP NetWeaver Product & Product Strategy Update for more information.

See SAP Note 2256796 for more information on upgrading your BPC system to NW 7.50.

Please review the following diagram:

Key Takeaway:
If you are using BPC 10.1 (standard model) on SAP BW 7.50 ,
an SAP Note (code correction) will now reference both SAP_BW 750 as well as the BPC 10.0 / BPC 10.1 CPMBPC / HANABPC Add-On versions (800 / 801 / 810) if the code correction applies to those specific versions.

For example, the validity of this Note 2271368 - Support filtering on property with size over 255 in Script Logic applies to BPC 10.0 (CPMBPC 800 and CPMBPC 801), BPC 10.1 standard on BW 7.40 (CPMBPC 810) and now BPC 10.1 standard on BW 7.50 (SAP_BW 750).

Currently there is no service pack (SP) mapping matrix between BPC 10.1 on BW 7.50 with BPC 10.1  on BW 7.40 because their release dates are not synchronized between NW 7.50 / NW 7.40.

Here are some release dates for BPC 10.1 on BW 7.50  and BPC 10.1 on NW 7.40.
