BPC 5.1 is the Microsoft version which uses the microsoft tools (Excel,powerpoint,etc) and the backend is SQL server, while BPC7.0 will be having both Microsoft version and Netweaver version.Here Microsoft version will be same as for BPC 5.1 with some advancements,while for NW version the backend will be BI.

What is In

Integration with NetWeaver BI

Increased dimensionality

New Validations engine

Integration with BI Accelerator

Improved dynamic templates

Hi Jojo,

From technical architecture perspective there are no differences but from features and enhancement purposes, we have like:

Management console

BPF enhancement- Email notification and multi reviewer

Enhanced BPC logging web interface

Support insight seasonality

SQE- Shared Query Engine

support of multiple hierarchies in time type dimension

Microsoft Vista and Office 2007 support (for client only)

Office2007 support was already available in v5 if i am correct.

The enhancements in Shared Query Engine are of course a great plus in terms of performance enhancements.

For the customers there is a big need to do the upgrade because of the end of life of all verisons prioir to v7 (please review the product availability matrix for the exact dates and options, the PAM is available from the Sap Service Portal)

Hope this helps,
