SAP and Microsoft plan to launch their business process integration product, Duet, next month.
Previously known as Mendocino, Duet has been awaited for 12 months. It is designed to allow users to interact more easily with SAP business processes via Microsoft Office applications such as Outlook.
SAP and Microsoft have also announced plans to enhance the capabilities of Duet later this year.
The two said Duet allows companies to increase user adoption of enterprise systems and business processes by offering a familiar environment that is “rapidly deployable and requires virtually no training”.
Some analysts, however, have questioned Duet’s worth.
