SAP's collaborative data management tool StreamWork now supports applications built using OpenSocial APIs, the company announced on Wednesday.
Applications built using OpenSocial APIs can plug directly into social networks or retrieve data directly from social sites. As a result of the support for OpenSocial apps within StreamWork, users can now use services such as Google Translate, Google Docs, MindMeister, and Doodle — an online calendar and appointment scheduling service — among others.
"Our customers need ways to work quickly, flexibly and fluidly across a broad range of applications and capabilities, including what they already use today," Holly Simmons, senior director of OnDemand marketing at SAP, said in a statement. "With OpenSocial, we're pleased to be able to rapidly extend SAP StreamWork with solutions from leading organisations to deliver a productive user experience."
Developers that have built tools using OpenSocial APIs can register them with SAP StreamWork and make them available to users via the 'Tools Catalog' in StreamWork.
