BPC 11 SP4 Summary: Should You Upgrade?

By Graham Jordan

BPC 11 Service Pack 4 was released on April 27, 2018.

This SP contains 69 enhancement and bug fixes, all listed in the table below. Many of the notes are related to Consolidations errors.

Our standard recommendation is to use the highest patch level of the previous Service Pack, as newly released Service Packs can sometimes introduce new issues.

If you are running an earlier SP of BPC 11 and are encountering performance or functionality issues, we recommend an upgrade to SP4. Otherwise, continue using your current version.

Please contact us at if you need additional guidance on this topic.
