SAP and Microsoft have made it official: the project codenamed Mendocino is now unveiled and will henceforth be known as Duet. It will roll out on schedule in June this year. As part of the launch, SAP and Microsoft have created a website, duet.com, and will follow up with a 13-city roadshow to spread the word about this new, jointly developed product.
In a press conference earlier today, Jeff Raikes, President of Microsoft Business Division, and Shai Agassi, SAP executive board member and president of the Product & Technology Group, ran through basic features of Duet. They also fielded questions from the press on issues like pricing, when Duet will be available on the CRM side, and what else we can expect from the SAP-Microsoft partnership in the years ahead.
"This is not the end of the relationship; it is merely the beginning," Agassi said.
