Model Construction accommodating multiple businesses
If there are different businesses with unique planning characteristics (e.g. revenue and cost of goods) but operating within the same metadata framework, is it preferable to create different models representing each business or a single model with different modules pertaining to each business? Each business will be operated by different sets of users (and hence differing security) but a total consolidated view is required of all businesses. There will also be a need to have inter-business calculations for allocations and transfer pricing considerations, among other cross organizational calculations. Thanks!
