The Sage Group plc announces global partnership with MySQL AB

The Sage Group plc has signed a global agreement with MySQL AB which enables Sage to embed MySQL database technology into its world-wide product portfolio.

Sage intends to introduce MySQL into its small business range over the coming months as part of ongoing product development and upgrade activity. The MySQL database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its high performance and reliability, combined with a low footprint and ease of use. The introduction of MySQL will be led by the regional operating companies that make up The Sage Group as they progressively deploy the technology in their product ranges.
