Interview Questions Back to Top

Q1. What is BPC?

Q4. BPC for NW has an aggregation level or not, Is BPC an application on top SAP-IP?

Ans: BPC and IP have completely different architecture. BPC doesn’t use aggregation levels or filters. BPC and IP have no relation and thus, cannot be compared. BPC uses various script logics, business rules for doing the planning. Manual planning can be done with input schedules. The input schedules are on the excel platform and are quite versatile. You can use BPC functionalities along with native excel functionalities for better design of the input schedules.

Q5. What about BPC in the consolidation part?

Ans: BPC comes with pre-delivered components for consolidation, which can be leveraged on. There are a few business rules, which make the consolidation process easier.

Q6. What is the concept of plan data from BPC?

Ans: The concept of planning is the same as you have in any other tool. The functional side of the planning remains the same. However, the tool differs. The way you configure a planning scenario will be much different than any other planning tool. Unfortunately, it will not be feasible to address this in the forum. You can definitely go through the study materials for a better understanding.

Q7. BPC for NW needs to install .NET application server and Web server or not?

Ans: Yes, You can have a look at the installation guide available on the marketplace for detailed requirements.

Ans:

  • Star Schema for Exceptional Reporting: SAP BPC uses NW InfoCubes to store the data. The dimension model used is extended Star Schema so it makes BPC with the NW system an exceptional system for reporting.
  • No Database Dependence Version: BPC NW version is not dependent on database version and can run common databases like DB2, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.
  • BW Accelerator Support: SAP NetWeaver BW accelerator tool is an additional feature that can be used to enhance the performance of reporting in the system even if you are using large datasets. It indirectly helps in saving the cost for a company as less number of report performance issues are reported.
  • Badi Development and ABAP Support: SAP BPC with NetWeaver allows you to use ABAP programming to develop K2 script logic. It enables the creation of a business add-in BAdi interface in the back-end system, which can be called later from script logic developed in the BPC system. It helps in solving the complex business requirements and reducing the development time for an organization.

Q9. What is the BPC client tool? And If I planning on the BEx report, I have to create an aggregation level for planning data or not?

Ans: BPC client sits on the client machines, from where; you will be doing the design. There are mainly 3 interfaces available - BPC Admin, BPC Office, and BPC Web. BPC Office, in turn, has 3 interfaces - Excel, Word, PowerPoint. These interfaces can be used for various requirements.

Q10. Can you debug the data manager package?

Ans: UJD_TEST_PACKAGE.You must specify the User ID. The DM package can be selected with F4.

Ans:

  • Dimension Logic − This can be configured in the BPC system using simple mathematical formulas.
  • Business Rules − This allows you to create rules in the BPC system to perform specific functions.
  • K2 Script Logic − This is used to perform some specific functions which can’t be achieved using out-of-box functionality to meet the business requirements. You can create K2 script logics to perform certain functions, which can be performed in a standard system.

Ans: %USER% - Returns current SAP Business Objects Planning and Consolidation User %APPSET% - Returns current SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation AppSet (Application Set) %APPLICATION% - Returns current SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation Application %YEAR% - Returns current calendar year.

Q14. What is the difference between EVGTS and EVANS?

Ans: EVGTS: The EVGTS (Get value and scale) function retrieves a data value based on the specified members, and scales the value if the scale property is enabled on the dimension. The report templates provided in the sample application set have a scale reference in the Control Panel area of the template.

EVSND: EVANS This Send function references another cell and sends its value to the database when you select Send and Refresh Schedules. The parameters specify the dimensions that identify where the data value is to be sent in the database. EVSND returns the value from the database to the referenced cell. You do not need to add any EVGET functions to the sheet to return values to the cell. Since the values are returned to the referenced cell, BPC sends only the cells that have changed since the last send in the current session. By putting the formula in the EVANS cell and not in the input cells, you decrease the chances of your formulas getting overwritten or erased. To further protect the formulas, you may want to hide the EVSND cells in the input schedule. This function takes members that not specified from the current view settings.

Q15. What is the difference between DRILLDOWN and DRILL THROUGH?

Ans: Drill down is different than drill through. Drill down is used to drill down on member data within dimensions. You can drill down on members in a worksheet, or you can drill down on charts and graphs. Drill down is conducted within one report in the Excel interface whereas drill through is a 'jump' outside of the Excel Interface.
