Enterprise Applications: SAP's 12Sprints Collaboration Platform Could Challenge Google Wave
SAP Feb. 2 launched to public beta 12Sprints, a collaboration environment geared to help knowledge workers share enterprise application data and discuss it in a virtual forum, which is provisioned by invite only. XMPP-powered chat and document sharing are available, and SAP has already created extensions for Scribd, Evernote and UserVoice, letting users post documents and Web annotations to share with colleagues and leave feedback in a comments section. This platform could serve as an alternative to Google Wave for some businesses. To see a live tour of 12Sprints, click on this YouTube video, and check out this demo.
