SAP has delivered the first customer shipments of R/3 version 3.1, which includes a Java-based front end, so that users can access the software suite via a browser resident on either a PC or network computer.
The product, which is slated for general availability in the first quarter next year, also includes 25 Application Components. These are off-the-shelf templates for applications such as placing orders and arranging service requests, that users add to their Web sites. The Application Components are then hooked into R/3 and, depending on their function, can be used either internally or by customers and suppliers.
