Microsoft plans to make available a connector kit that allows users to easily link Microsoft's Office Project Server...
2003 with SAP's ERP products.
The SAP Connector Starter Kit for Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 will be available at no charge from Microsoft's website.
Microsoft released Project Server 2003, the server component of its enterprise project management offering, late last year.
At the launch, Microsoft also touted the product's capabilities to connect with ERP systems, allowing project managers to access all kinds of data used in handling projects.
The SAP Connector contains a sample application that customers and partners could use to synchronise SAP human resources and finance data with Project Server. It also includes source code and documentation that offers guidance for connecting Project Server with back-end systems.
