What’s the best way for a software vendor to prove that a business management solution is viable? It’s to use it yourself. That is exactly what Microsoft is doing.
Microsoft Corp. has long claimed that their Dynamics mid-market ERP solutions are a great fit for a two-tier ERP strategy. They’ve backed up this assertion by creating tools that enable organizations to more easily connect systems, like their SAP – Dynamics AX Connector.
Now, they’ve taken it one step further by adopting a standard two-tier strategy internally. Microsoft has centralized their corporate financial accounting with SAP and implemented a standard, integrated Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 solution for operational units and subsidiaries. This two-tier solution has helped Microsoft:
- Gain efficiency by automating processes
- Improve manageability of people, processes, and data
- Innovate more rapidly
