Granted, other vendors' platforms can boast
of similar, integral support for Internet protocols. But how many can
lay claim to SAP's track record for delivering highly scalable and reliable
technology that is designed to serve the most grueling mission-critical
application environments? The new mySAP.com Application Server is built
on these proven SAP technologies.
And, as its name implies, this is an open platform - one which
features integration capabilities that provide both real-time and cached
access to existing SAP and non-SAP applications. What does this
mean to our customers? It means that they can use this platform to expand
their existing SAP system to the Web without disruption to an in-place,
stable component landscape.
This is a very exciting initiative for SAP.
Our name is synonymous with high-performance, scalable application solutions.
The new mySAP.com Application Server extends our leadership position to
dynamic e-business applications. And we're doing so with a Web application
server that for many applications is significantly faster than existing
technologies, because the mySAP.com Application Server natively combines
for Web presentation.
A comprehensive object-oriented framework for
standard Web design elements frees developers from the burden of constantly
recoding similar user-interface elements while retaining the flexibility
provided by server-side scripting. In terms of backend connectivity, this
platform supports all databases and middleware supported by SAP. What
you get is an application server that supports access to real-time as
well as cached data in existing business applications.
Scheduled for availability in the third quarter
of 2000, mySAP.com Application Server can be used as a standalone tool
for developing Web applications, and seamlessly integrates with existing
technologies, such as Microsoft Windows DNA and IBM WebSphere, to meet
evolving requirements for:
- High availability
- Transaction processing
- Native language support
