You probably know about the NetWeaver Gateway Trial version which you can download from SDN. Now, the very same thing is also available for Duet Enterprise.
Over the last few months we already offered this package in a beta phase and incorporated quite a lot of feedback. Now we think it is time to offer it to everyone.
Since Duet Enterprise is a joint product we teamed up with Microsoft and can offer you now the full package: A SharePoint 2010 Server that is configured with Duet Enterprise, Office 2010 connected and of course a fully configured SAP NetWeaver Gateway system. All available as a Hyper-V virtual machine which should make the installation pretty simple.
Unfortunately we cannot ship an ERP system as well, but you can connect this configuration either to your local ERP system, or we are also working on making a connection to the Enterprise Service Workplace possible.
Since you still want to see something, we have preconfigured some Reports and one Workflow on the Gateway system itself so you can test this right away in SharePoint.
We hope that the most complicated thing is to download the software itself. After that it is just starting up the virtual machine and running some scripts (all explained in a screen-shot rich documentation.
