1) vnunet.com: SAP will back .Net: German software giant SAP AG said it would back both Microsoft's .Net
strategy and rival Sun Microsystems' Java technology, rebutting
reports this week that SAP would give its full backing to the Sun
platform.SAP North American spokesperson Bill Wohl said a lot of
interest had been created by the inaccurate and incomplete newspaper
story. "We've spent the last 24 hours trying to balance it."
According to Wohl, the UK's Financial Times got the story wrong; they
relied on the wrong sources.
2) SAP Chooses Sun Micro Platform Over Microsoft : SAP, Europe's biggest software group, has decided not to use
Microsoft's .Net software platform and is instead backing a competing
offering from Sun Microsystems. Hasso Plattner, SAP chief executive,
will announce next week that the German group is to adopt Sun's J2EE
architecture, a development platform for enterprise software based on
the Java programming language, to run SAP software. SAP's move is
likely to be a blow to Microsoft, as the German group has one of the
largest customer bases of any business software developer.
