SAP hopes to boost StreamWork sales with OpenSocial

Chris Kanaracus | Feb. 16, 2011
SAP has added support for the Google-backed OpenSocial programming standards for social applications to its StreamWork collaboration software, the company announced Wednesday.

A typical customer might be a small consulting firm that wants to strategize and share documents with customers thousands of miles away, Simmons said.

Large enterprises are voicing "different types of requests when it comes to pain points," she said. For one, they want to help employees work more effectively with the software they already have.

The enterprise edition was only released in December, so SAP is "just ramping that up from a sales perspective," she said.

SAP has also deployed the tool internally, company-wide, Simmons added.

While eager to grow StreamWork's partner community, SAP has ambitious development plans of its own.

Customers should expect to see continued work to integrate StreamWork with SAP's range of business software, Simmons said. "People want to use this in a business context. We're not trying to create yet another productivity suite."
