OMV Aktiengesellschaft, Vienna (Austria)
OMV AG (Corp.) is the largest publicly listed industrial company in Austria. As the leading petroleum and natural gas company in Central Europe, OMV works in the areas of refineries and marketing (R&M), exploration and production (E&P), and gas and power (G&P).

VMS DNA-level benchmark was used to measure a landscape of 16 productive systems for OMV. Varying operating concepts were characteristic for that landscape, at multiple locations, with varying, in part outsourced platforms.
As a result, OMV put the new knowledge gained from the benchmark into action, unified platform and operating forms, and set up a new IT service provider, OMV Solutions. VMS continuously supported OMV with additional benchmarks in the form of the VMS Monitor.
“The investigation by VMS of our entire SAP landscape, with more than 16 productive systems, was technically sound, quick and effective. As a result, VMS provided us with clear, detailed information on the costs, use, and quality of our IT. The VMS Benchmark gave us a clear blueprint for a more effective SAP strategy.
VMS now uses the VMS Monitor to support us in implementing the measures we introduced. With this tool, our IT Controlling is first-rate. And we continue to orient ourselves around best practices, from a technical and business point of view. In VMS, we have found a very competent partner for doing that.”
