In SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC) 10.0 EvDRE functions have evolved into EPM functions with different names than the corresponding functionality in previous versions. In some cases, the EvDRE functions have been transformed into menu options. These changes pose challenges to users who may not be familiar with the new nomenclature for SAP SAP BPC 10.0 functions.

Table 1 compares the differences between SAP BPC 10.0 and SAP BPC 7.x nomenclature. The table displays the most important Ev and EPM functions and their respective functionality.
