SAP and Microsoft have teamed up for an enterprise Duet a new product to link up the companies' products.

Unveiled alongside the release of the SharePoint Server 2010 beta, Duet Enterprise is an extension of a previous system that brought SAP into Microsoft Office.

"We heard from customers their strong desire to generate more value from their existing IT investments," said Pascal Gibert, director of Duet product management at Microsoft. "Historically, customers who integrated Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office with SAP applications faced a number of challenging tasks, including authentication between Microsoft SharePoint and SAP services, and the building and deployment of combined services and solutions."

"Duet Enterprise will empower people to blend SAP data and processes with Microsoft SharePoint content and collaboration tools to increase personal and team productivity across the PC, phone and browser," he added in a statement.

Duet Enterprise sorts out the interoperability and security issues, letting IT pros integrate SAP and Microsoft's SharePoint and Office into a single solution for end users.

Microsoft said Duet Enterprise would be available in the second half of next year.
