What is Two-Tier ERP?

Global organizations are increasingly adopting a Two-Tier enterprise resource planning (ERP) strategy to run their global businesses on two or more ERP systems to meet their market needs. SAP’s Two-Tier ERP strategy with SAP S/4HANA Cloud offers headquarter-subsidiary, central services, supply chain ecosystem deployment models enabling business and IT to work together to build sustainable, scalable solutions providing all benefits of cloud deployment – agility, standardization and low total cost of ownership (TCO) – while maximizing existing investments in their ERP systems (in cases where an organization is not ready to fully transition to the cloud).
