Microsoft changes Office Solution Accelerator pitch

Microsoft changes Office Solution Accelerator pitch

by Rick Turoczy on December 3, 2004

Microsoft is not discarding its existing Solution Accelerators. The accelerators for Sarbanes-Oxley, Six Sigma, Proposals and Recruiting will be featured on the showcase Web site and Microsoft will make the source code for these accelerators available, Ajenstat said.

Microsoft will not provide the source code for the Business Scorecards accelerator or the Excel Add-in for SQL Server Analysis Services, although these will be in the showcase, Ajenstat said. Microsoft is holding on to the source code as the business intelligence-type capabilities fit with other Microsoft products, he said.

While Microsoft will be providing less code, the showcase will offer more examples of expanded uses of Office, for example for invoice management, performance reviews, contract generation and investment banking pitch books, Ajenstat said.

Many of the examples on the showcase will feature Microsoft partners. That suits Adriaan van Wyk just fine. Van Wyk is chief executive officer of SourceCode Technology Holdings Inc., in Redmond. SourceCode sells a business process automation product called K2.net that takes advantage of Microsoft applications, including Office.
