Welcome to the summary blog for Manufacturing and Supply Chain in Two-Tier ERP. Here you will find useful informative links to help you deploy different Manufacturing and Supply Chain scenarios with business use cases in Two-Tier ERP.

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 Public Edition 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).
