Connect Your Local Entities to Headquarters with Microsoft Dynamics for Your Two-Tier ERP Solution

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.
