Kit to Help Integrate Project Server with SAP

Microsoft planned to release a kit on Wednesday to help systems integrators build hooks from SAP implementations into Microsoft's Office Project Server 2003.

Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 is one of the company's lesser known server products and one of a handful of servers in the relatively new Office System. It is for managing projects at an enterprise level.

The kit is formally called the SAP Connector Starter Kit for Microsoft Office Project Server 2003. According to Microsoft, the kit will help SIs build solutions that allow project managers to access information from SAP's HR systems and integrate with SAP finance systems. Microsoft contends the access into the SAP systems will help project managers quickly identify the most appropriate company employees for a given project and more accurately estimate and track the cost of projects.

The kit was supposed to be available from the Microsoft Download Center.
