While developing a new application you generally create organization struction like organization level, division level and unit level, which is not really needed at that time, but when more such application which need to be build on the same organisation, that time we need those level, you may know atleast why we have framework structure right, it is just for reusability purpose, similarly the organization structure also.

Organization, Division and Unit serve as Namespace qualifiers for your application from others applications.

It also helps to promote re-usability across applications with in the same Namespace like Organization wide, Division wide and Unit wide reusability.

You can even configure your security based on Organization, Division and Unit..

Being said all this, these are what can be done.. in reality Org / Div / Unit structure are merely used as Namespace qualifiers only.

For Reusability, Enterprise class structure with frameworks at Enterprise, Division and Unit are recommended.

For security Access groups is recommended.

Is it mandatory to have a structure as Organization/Division/Unit . Can we have only Organisation/Unit or Organisation/Division? If yes how can we map the same to an user agent?
