  1. Who takes ownership of the transformation from SAP to OMP?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    OMP takes ownership of the SAP OMP transformation. The OMP SAP Namespace solution is designed to interact with SAP as well as with the OMP model.

  2. Can you integrate my on-premise SAP system with OMP cloud?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    The OMP SAP Namespace solution can connect to any SAP system, including on-premise systems. While the system’s location might be important for performance, it is not relevant to feasibility.

  3. Which data and systems can I connect to OMP?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    Any system containing relevant data can be connected. OMP provides standard tools allowing both inbound and outbound data flows to be set up.

  4. Can I extract my data from the OMP system?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    In OMP, data flows can be set up to any other system. Reports meeting specific business needs can also be created in OMP and exported for use in other systems.

  5. How do my custom SAP fields get into OMP?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    In most cases, selecting an SAP field is as simple as ticking the field in the OMP configurator. This also applies for most custom SAP fields, though more complex fields with specific logic can be added by implementing user exits.

  6. How can the implemented integration procedures be monitored?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    OMP provides an overview of all procedures and their runs, including integration procedures allowing you to check the status of each run. You can also define actions for specific statuses, for example sending an e-mail in the event of an SAP OMP integration failure.

  7. What is the frequency and granularity of integration?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    OMP advises micro-batch integration based on frequent incremental data exchange. This ensures that any differences between OMP and other systems remain limited. A full load should be set up to initialize the system.

  8. To what extent does the SAP interface use standard SAP functionality?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    The OMP SAP Namespace solution builds on standard SAP tools. For example, communication with SAP uses SAP’s RFC protocol. Planning decisions are sent to SAP using standard remote-enabled SAP functions.

  9. How much effort is required from our IT team to set up an OMP SAP integration?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    It only requires the OMP SAP Namespace solution to be installed, and minor changes to SAP configuration such as setting up RFC destinations. OMP will configure the integration based on these requirements, set the data selection criteria and tune the mapping rules.

  10. Do you provide REST APIs to allow interaction with the OMP system?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    We are continuously extending our library of REST APIs. One example is an API that continuously sends data to OMP.

  11. How do you ensure data quality?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    The OMP SAP interfacing model contains rules to validate external data. Invalid data are detected, flagged and blocked for transfer to OMP. Users can resolve incorrect data either temporarily in OMP or by fixing them at the source in SAP.

  12. How do you ensure the security of the SAP OMP integration?

    Filip Van Rysselberghe

    Product Architect at OMP Belgium

    SAP OMP integration is achieved over secure connections. RFC connections are therefore wrapped into a secure layer, while the OMP SAP Namespace solution also complies with SAP security standards. For example, the access control rules or logging mechanisms hold for the namespace as much as for the dialog user.

  13. Why choose OMP Cloud Services?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    OMP Cloud Services offers the typical advantages of cloud-based computing. In addition, OMP Cloud Services assures the best experience when using OMP applications.

  14. Does OMP offer cloud services through its own data centers?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    No, OMP Cloud Services uses the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform. Microsoft Azure provides innovative, secure and high-performance services, allowing OMP to focus all its efforts on the OMP applications, ranging from R&D to implementation and support.

  15. How do users access the OMP Cloud Services application?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    To access OMP Cloud Services, you simply open a browser, log in and start using the application.

  16. How does OMP Cloud Service secure user access?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    OMP Cloud Services provides secure access to the application through single sign-on (SSO) using the SAML 2.0 standard, which eliminates the need for multiple application-specific usernames and passwords. It achieves this by facilitating the secure exchange of authentication and authorization data between applications. This widely used standard also provides a strong security function by leveraging Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to protect the asserted identities against attempted attacks..

  17. Is customer data secure?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    Customer data is always encrypted, both in transit and at rest. In transit, protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data is secured using the HTTPS protocol. HTTPS creates a secure channel over an insecure network, protecting against man-in-the-middle attacks. At rest, all written data is encrypted through 256-bit AES encryption, one of the strongest block ciphers available.

  18. What service-level agreements are offered as part of OMP Cloud Services?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    OMP Cloud Services includes SLAs covering data and system availability. Monthly reporting is available to customers providing transparent insight into service quality.

  19. What certification does OMP implement for its cloud services?

    Tom Dierickx

    Senior Consultant at OMP Belgium

    OMP has implemented the ISAE 3402 control framework, which is independently audited at least annually.
