SAP and Microsoft have extended the roadmap for their Duet partnership, the two firms announced at the former's Sapphire user conference in Atlanta, US, last week.

Previously known as Montecino, Duet software integrates Microsoft's desktop Office suite with SAP's back-end mySAP enterprise applications. According to SAP, since Duet 1.0's launch last year, more than 250 customers have adopted it.

The companies will jointly enhance Duet with additional business scenarios, platform capabilities and development tools. The upcoming version, Duet 2.0, is planned for the end of 2008 and Duet 3.0 should be released soon after the next generation of SAP Business Suite applications and Microsoft Office software, including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server.

"With this roadmap we are adding new language support for the various country versions that will make Duet a much stronger application," Léo Apotheker, president of customer solutions and operations and deputy CEO of SAP, said at the conference.

The vendor also claimed Duet would fit into the current IT infrastructure without disrupting it, as customisation is possible. This application also fits well into an SOA environment and is supported by SAP Business Suite, Microsoft Office and SharePoint.

The firms said the scenarios will support sales and supply chain management, unstructured processes, and information and group collaboration.
