Availability for windows 8 touch technology

Hi, I'm looking for SAP support availability plan for windows 8 client.

 

Does anyone know windows 8 client will be supported for ERPand  Portal with touch technology (Mango)?

 

I suppose it will be supported same as other new OS version,  but touch panel entry will be new for SAP.

 

If it will be no different than other existion OS, that's no problem for us.

 

Customer is checking up if they plan to implement windows 8 for the future.

 

Thanks.

 

Mizuka.

    Hi Mizuka,

     

    >> Does anyone know windows 8 client will be supported for ERPand Portal with touch technology (Mango)?

     

    I don't think that this feature will be specifically supported on SAPGUI or the SAP Portal application. However, you can connect to the Portal on your tablet PC, for example and use the touch technology, from the beginning of it. What do you expect more? Could you clarify it?

     

    But, SAP already been published the applications on the mobile devices such as IPad and Android, supporting touch technology.

     

    Best regards,

      Thank you Orkun,

       

      I know touch technology is supported for mobile device.

       

      My expectation is that user can use SAPGUI or Portal through touch panel (Mango UI) on WIndows 8 PC same as keyboard client.

       

       

      Do you think it will be unavailable at the pointo of SAP support availability ?

       

      I appreciate your kind reply.

        Well, my personal opinion is SAP will not make a special development on neither SAPGUI nor SAP Portal, in near future on this way. Of course, this is technically possible, but a strategic approach. This is because, if they support this technology only on Window 8, they need to support this on all operating systems, also.
