[TECH ALERT] Current Performance Issues with SAP BPC 10 and 10.1 MS

Posted by Charles Dagaev on Wed, Feb 28, 2018 @ 09:02 AM

Our tech team has noticed a pattern of SAP BPC performance issues with certain SAP BPC 10 and SAP BPC 10.1 systems on Microsoft. Dimension indexes are becoming fragmented, which seems to relate to dimension processing. The addition of even a single member to a dimension, with the same processing, fragments the first index (clustered) in the list. In turn, Analysis Services is unable to read from the dimension table efficiently, which in turn kills retrieval of data (reports / schedules) performance.

[TECH ALERT] BPC 10.x Microsoft with EPM Add-in SP29

Posted by Darko Kavazovic on Wed, Jul 12, 2017 @ 09:07 AM

Our Technical Services team has received an influx of service tickets regarding issues with the recently released SAP BPC EPM Add-in Service Pack 29.

Problem

With EPM Add-in SP29 installed, we noticed that none of the built-in reports or report templates are working when trying to refresh with BPC 10.1 Microsoft (MS). When attempting to refresh, it keeps prompting to login to SAP NetWeaver (NW) system, instead of BPC 10.1 Microsoft.  Please see example below:

We are connected to the Planning model for BPC MS but it is trying to login to BPC NW Consolidation.
