My name is Pascal Gibert and I am the Director of Product Management for Duet Enterprise at Microsoft.

At PDC 2009 Microsoft announced our intent to deliver Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP software in the second half of 2010.

Developed jointly by Microsoft and SAP, Duet Enterprise offers new tools and services for creating solutions that combine process and  collaboration—and provides ready-to-use capabilities that are of immediate value to our customers.

I encourage you to watch this space in the coming weeks and months where we will be sharing ongoing product and industry news, provide a deep dive on the different components of Duet Enterprise, offer implementation and development tips and tricks, and give you a glimpse at some of the people behind the technology.

In January we held our first Developer Kitchens where implementers and developers were offered a first look at the new technology. The reaction from customers and partners, even at such an early stage, was overwhelmingly positive.

In March we conducted a well-attended partner webcast that is now available on demand. In this presentation, we shared an overview of Duet Enterprise, including the system requirements and architecture, and providing guidance on how to engage in our upcoming Rapid Deployment Program (RDP).

We are also in the process of deploying Duet Enterprise within the company and working on some exciting proof of concepts just in time for Sapphire 2010 Conferences in the US and Germany this May.

Check back often for the most recent news, information, and resources as we launch this exciting new product. You can also follow us via Facebook and Twitter.
