Large organizations find that some headquarter ERP solutions are too complex to adapt to the unique requirements of their smaller, local entities. Microsoft Dynamics ERP provides a viable alternative for these companies to easily customize their solution to meet specific requirements, implement vertical functionality, and to manage change easily and cost-effectively.
Companies using Microsoft Dynamics as their two-tier ERP solution gain transparency and deep insight into their organization's entities helping them manage their business more effectively enabling them to drive business success across the enterprise and enabling their entities to optimize their solutions to meet local needs and adhere to their headquarter requirements.
On Monday, May 17, 2010, Microsoft announced a new Microsoft Dynamics ERP two-tier connector for SAP business scenarios. This connector accelerates two-tier enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployments between Microsoft Dynamics AX and SAP Business Suite. The connector enables IT organizations to use Microsoft Dynamics AX across subsidiaries, divisions or branch entities to facilitate cost-effective business process integration and easily connect with SAP installations at the corporate headquarters. Specifically, the connector will enable common business process integration scenarios for headquarters and subsidiary locations across financial consolidation, intercompany supply chain integration and plant automation.
"As the preferred desktop and laptop provider of enterprises across the U.S. and Europe, we needed a proven global business software solution that would help us respond to the changing market with increased speed and agility to meet our customers' requirements. Microsoft Dynamics AX met our ERP global business requirements allowing us to reduce our IT and manufacturing costs and overall total cost of ownership."
