Oracle and NetSuite—Thriving in the Hybrid Cloud
Run your subsidiaries with cloud ERP while preserving your headquarters' Oracle E-Business Suite investments
Your Oracle ERP system has been serving you well as your company grew organically. But now you are expanding your business globally. Your company is growing with new subsidiaries, new acquisitions and new global markets. You need to integrate these new entities with your corporate ERP—but can you do so rapidly and affordably, and achieve the real-time global visibility and efficiency that your business demands?
The answer is a two-tier ERP model powered by NetSuite. The two-tier model lets you preserve your on-premise ERP investments in Oracle or other systems, while equipping global subsidiaries with a more agile, flexible cloud-based ERP/financials system and giving headquarters the real-time visibility it needs, at a lower price.
What Is Two-Tier ERP?
Two-tier ERP enables subsidiaries to tailor the ERP to their own special needs and support their local accounting requirements. It ensures that a remote subsidiary doesn't end up with a burdensome, hard-to-maintain on-premise ERP deployment.
Keep your investment in your existing Oracle E-Business Suite system at the corporate level, while empowering subsidiaries and divisions to innovate with a second ERP system that gives them more agility and better total cost of ownership.
Benefits of NetSuite:
Two-tier ERP powered by NetSuite delivers tangible benefits that can't be matched by any other model:
Easily integrates with corporate systems.
Enterprises deploying NetSuite can use NetSuite's SuiteCloud Connect solutions for best practices-based integration with Oracle E-Business Suite or leverage pre-built adapters by leading integration partners like Informatica, IBM Cast Iron, Dell Boomi or Pervasive Software.
Eliminates the need to put IT boots on the ground.
Cloud delivery enables deployment of mature, full-featured ERP without having to hire local IT resources. The whole subsidiary deployment process can be managed from the division or from corporate—cutting costs, speeding deployment and reducing infrastructure.
Accelerates entry into emerging markets and products.
Fast-moving "companies within companies" can't wait. NetSuite's global language, currency and regulatory support paired with speed of deployment make it the ideal platform for supporting emerging and growing businesses.
Quickly deploys to meet the needs of mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures.
NetSuite provides fast, flexible, cost-effective and repeatable capabilities to run the new business while shedding the infrastructure complexities typically inherent in the prior applications, quickly cutting ties and commitments to the prior parent.
Customizes to individual go-to-market needs.
Are you developing new product or service offerings different from your existing business, or are you expanding internationally? Does your existing ERP not support the required processes? NetSuite's platform supports extensive configuration and customization without being forced into deploying a separate instance or suffering from version-lock.
Enables elastic growth.
NetSuite's cloud infrastructure enables dynamic growth—there's no need to provision resources in anticipation of demand.
