SAP and Microsoft Introduce Duet™ Software, Bringing Together the Worlds of Productivity and Enterprise Applications
Twelve months after first unveiling plans to create "Project Mendocino" -- a joint product that enables people to interact quickly and easily with SAP business processes and data through Microsoft(R) Office applications -- SAP AG and Microsoft Corp. announced that the two companies will ship the product on time in June 2006. The product is officially named Duet(TM) software for Microsoft Office and SAP. Nearly 100 joint customers and partners, including Atmel and Infosys, have been exploring the software's benefits in early release versions since late 2005. SAP and Microsoft also announced plans to enhance the capabilities of Duet this year and to release additional business scenarios in the second half of 2006.
