SAP gets Net savvy at CeBIT

Following the trend to incorporate Internet access into the client/server software used in large corporations, SAP AG will detail plans to make its R/3 applications Internet-savvy at next week's CeBIT conference in Hannover, Germany.

Following the trend to incorporate Internet access into the client/server software used in large corporations, SAP AG will detail plans to make its R/3 applications Internet-savvy at next week's CeBIT conference in Hannover, Germany.

SAP will rely on its partner Business@Web to provide most of the Internet intelligence for its back-end systems. Business@Web will offer a visual component builder, complete with a Visual Basic-like interface and scripting language, for building Web-based R/3 applications. The tool set will let companies build Web clients--such as Netscape Navigator 2.0 plug-ins and Internet Explorer 3.0 OCXs--that tie in to R/3 back-end functions.

The alliance between SAP and Business@Web was forged close to home. Klaus Besier moved from the CEO slot at SAP America to the same position at Business@Web in February. Business@Web was formerly known as Object Power.
