FTPOnline.com: Microsoft Launch Targets Large Enterprises
FTPOnline.com: Microsoft Launch Targets Large Enterprises: "Reverse engineering Ballmer's slide, which shows SAP with SQL Server 2000 could support 26,000 concurrent users, this means that until now SQL Server was shut out from the top tier of SAP's market, so presumably SAP was forced to support its arch rival Oracle for those clients. No longer. A majority of SAP applications already run on Windows and more than 45 percent run on SQL Server. SAP will integrate SQL Server 2005 directly into one of its own ERP offerings, and provide product support."
