K2 Connect(TM) for SAP Ties SAP-Based Information Into Business Applications

    REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 3 /CNW/ -- K2(R), a division of SourceCode
Technology Holdings Inc., today announced the global availability of K2
connect(TM) for SAP -- no-code software that increases business efficiency and
reduces IT costs by bridging the gap between SAP and the world of
process-driven applications, forms and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server.
    K2 connect for SAP empowers line-of-business specialists to visually
create business entities -- in just a few clicks -- that pull information from
SAP. Then anyone in the organization can use these business entities within
existing K2 processes and .NET-based applications, including SharePoint and
Salesforce.com applications; or these SAP-tied business entities can be
assembled with others, like building blocks, to create entirely new
applications, reports and forms.
    "In the past, bringing SAP data into a workflow, business process or
application may have taken days or weeks of solid developer coding," said K2's
Adriaan Van Wyk, CEO. "Now, with K2 connect for SAP, this responsibility is
taken out of the developers' hands and can be accomplished in hours, without
hassle and without writing a single line of code.
    "It significantly reduces development time and cost, frees IT resources,
and opens up new process capabilities."
    According to Chris Dearing, SAP solutions architect for Microsoft, K2
connect for SAP is a technology organizations have been asking for.
    "Microsoft and SAP customers continue to tell us that they want to bring
these two technologies together to add more value to their investments,"
Dearing said. "K2 has long been a key partner to Microsoft, adding value to
our technology stack, and we see K2 connect for SAP as being valuable to our
joint customers and complementary to ongoing Microsoft efforts in this space."
    K2 connect for SAP is an add-on for K2 blackpearl(TM), K2's most
extensive software for building process-driven applications.
    K2 applications can be set up to automate and manage processes -- such as
document approval or inventory tracking -- or pull together business
processes, people, services, information and systems into a single application
that helps drive business.
