NetSuite on Tuesday rolled out a two-tier ERP version for Oracle.
Two-tier ERP blends on-demand services with on-premises transaction systems. In a nutshell, NetSuite is pitching customers on maintaining their Oracle systems at headquarters and then using NetSuite for divisions and subsidiaries.
Specifically, NetSuite is coupling its latest OneWorld and SuiteCloud Connectors to Oracle systems. The combination will be connected via IBM Cast Iron, Informatica, Dell Boomi, Celigo and Pervasive Software. NetSuite announced the Oracle two-tier ERP developments at Open World in San Francisco.
NetSuite argues that the two-tier approach can cut deployment time and costs instead of installing on-premise ERP in divisions.
SuiteCloud Connect for Oracle rolls up general ledger, order and revenue data from NetSuite and connects to Oracle for financial reporting.
Both NetSuite and Oracle are owned by Larry Ellison and the two companies are increasingly pointing out that they are siblings.
