Some of the things to consider with your global implementation may include language. Does SAP support the languages you require on one instance? Will there been certain times when the system will be required for backup or offline processing that may affect the availability in other time zones? How will the system be supported – will you require 24/7 support in many languages? You also need to look at the volume of processing to determine if one instance will be sufficient.
