SAP Jumps into bed with Informatics

Hi, I see that SAP is cozying up to Informatics in the following article:

I also noticed that Informatics has a nice dashboard tool.

Anyone care to venture out and guess how this will play out as SAP is integrating Adobe Flex as their Charting Option?

Thanks,

Ken Murray

I don´t see that dashboard tool from informatics as a nice tool. It looks very last century from a look and feel perspective. I also don´t see Flex at SAP as only tool to build dashboard but any type of RIA with the nicest possible look and feel I have ever seen anywhere. I put my money on Flex.

Thanks for the reply. I tend to agree with you as far as the best look and feel. Only problem is that VC doesn't tend to implement all of the Flex Functionality and tends to limit it. Also, SAP is not giving out any information about when the next update to Flex 2.0 will occur and what funtionality it will support.

Thanks

That´s true and a sad flashback to old SAP practices of hiding information from the market, developers and consultants who are out there trying to plan ahead and work with their products. Shai didn´t manage to shake SAP up quite enough for my liking.
