SAP and Adobe partnership – Apollo/Muse

March 21st, 2007 admin Posted in Uncategorized 1 Comment »

SAP has augmented SAP NetWeaver Visual Composer’s capabilities with the ability to render the resulting models into Flex. Now Adobe has come out with its next-generation client Apollo that will extend the reach and capabilities of today’s Rich Internet Applications, freeing them to run outside the browser, on desktops. Project Muse is the result – has robust “thick client” capabilities that seamlessly consume and interact with web-based “thin client” capabilities. That is, it basically replaces a browser to see web content in, and that with a very rich client interface (read Flash like).
With Muse, SAP users will still get all the functionality they have today in SAP GUI and all SAP GUI screens will work perfectly inside Muse. End users will see their ESS/MSS and other SAP Portal content being exposed through Muse. So would an Adobe document or an Excel sheet, or Webdynpro app, Visual Composer screen, or even a plain html page. Muse is really the shell around the actual application or content. But its not a dumb shell. It will keep the context of the screen being shown within its framework so that, for example, a guided procedure can be shown.
Adobe’s Apollo has gone into the Alpha release on March 19, 2007. And Muse is build on that framework. At Apollo matures, expect Muse to grow as well.икони
