Organizations operating in different geographies divide the organization structure into smaller entities. Before the advent of cloud computing in the commercial sphere, each entity relied on on-premise ERP or legacy solutions.  

SAP’s capability has grown manifold across verticals in the past decade. That empowered large-scale organizations to think about unifying their systems across different geographies by implementing a Global SAP system Strategy.

The Global SAP System refers to a single instance used across the organization irrespective of geographic differentiation. They will access the same system, whether the organization (or subsidiary) operates from Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australia, or Africa.

Problem Statement

The Global SAP System Strategy applies to various business cases for enterprises that either rely on SAP for their ERP requirements or intend to pivot to any SAP solution as a part of their roadmap. The decision to proceed with SAP Implementation is an important strategic choice.

SAP implementations are an expensive, time-consuming, and exhaustive process that requires significant buy-in from management, staff, and stakeholders, which involves third-party business partners.
