Two-Tier: Deploying Microsoft Dynamics AX in entities of corporations
Gain agility and reduce costs by standardizing on one business application for your subsidiaries, divisions, and branches.
Make Microsoft Dynamics
® AX the preferred business solution for your entities. Use a proven solution that is agile, industry-enabled, easy to use, and integrates with the legacy solution at your company headquarters.
With Microsoft Dynamics AX, you can effectively manage the complexities of a global organization across locations and countries by consolidating and standardizing business processes, gaining visibility, and simplifying compliance requirements with a cost-effective, custom solution.
Some headquarters ERP solutions are too large and complex to adapt to the unique requirements of smaller, local entities. Using Microsoft Dynamics AX in a two-tier ERP approach, you can meet those specialized requirements with a custom solution and easily implement vertical functionality. Manage change with the ability to scale quickly, and help improve the quality of data and reporting while lowering operational costs.
Two-tier ERP deployment strategy
Use Microsoft Dynamics AX as your preferred solution to handle business processes for your subsidiaries, branches, departments and fully integrate with the financial solution at your headquarters. The solution can run in multiple IT governance models (decentralized, centralized, or federated) and integrate consolidated financial data across your multiple sites and international locations with the headquarters solution while maintaining local financial information relevant to each location.
Meet a range of business requirements by deploying multiple integration scenarios—from simple financial consolidation to advanced scenarios in which Microsoft Dynamics AX communicates with your legacy system at the transaction level to expand your supply chain. The solution scales so that you can deploy the same core model across your organization regardless of project size.
Leverage innovative, industry-specific functionality for manufacturing, distribution, retail, professional services, the public sector, and other key industries. Microsoft Dynamics AX delivers a rich industry foundation on which partners build packaged vertical applications to help you meet unique industry needs.
