Standard integration into SAP ERP

The Add-On approach

The solution is designed as an integrated Add-On to SAP ERP in its standard form. The original SAP-architecture, as well as internal SAP-processes, will not be changed by ORSOFT MDW. The maintenance of data is initially done within ORSOFT MDW. All data information is saved in ORSOFT-specific tables within the SAP ERP database, until it is transferred into original SAP objects via user-driven synchronization. This synchronization works exclusively with SAP standard techniques like BAPI or batch-input. This approach guarantees that all SAP ERP safety and authorization mechanisms are observed.

SAP check tables are loaded and considered for all effected original fields, which have check-tables assigned in their SAP table definitions. These check table contents are available during the data maintenance in the workflows and ensure best possible data quality. Besides original SAP master data fields with their corresponding check tables, object-related classification data can be imported and handled as well. Furthermore, an integration of customer specific fields and tables is supported without limitation.

Dual system landscape

Master data are often maintained and used not only in one central system. It is very common to have a shared utilization within several systems. As a result, in its basic standard version the product ORSOFT Master Data Workflow supports a dual system landscape. Among other things, such system architecture allows the maintenance of basic data of a material in a central system, while site-related data can be maintained in local systems. Thus, synchronized data maintenance within multiple systems for more complex system landscapes is also possible.
