SAP is preparing to launch a potential rival to Google Wave. The application, code-named Constellation, is described as a "virtual war room" where co-workers can collaborate in real-time with information aggregated from different data sources.
According to IDG, which received a demo of the technology, Constellation works best with five to thirty users. There will be the capability to publish to a wider audience through wikis, Sharepoint and other platforms. SAP is also working on an on-premise application, but the initial focus is definitely on the cloud. Users will be able to access their enterprise data by tunneling into the app.
