Siebel Integrates Front Office Apps with SQL Server 7.0

Microsoft Corp. and Siebel Systems Inc. (www.siebel.com) today announced an agreement to deliver SQL Server 7.0 as a core component of the Siebel Web-based front office application family.

Beginning in July, Siebel Systems will ship its front office applications prepackaged with Microsoft SQL Server 7.0, backed by technical support from both companies. In addition, Siebel Systems will offer an upgrade package for Oracle customers to convert to SQL Server.

"The demand for SQL Server from both our mid-market and large global customers has dramatically increased," said Thomas Siebel, chairman and CEO of Siebel Systems.

This agreement allows companies to deploy Siebel Systems' sales, marketing and customer service applications with pre-engineered SQL Server optimization. New Siebel customers that purchase the integrated solution will pay less than the cost of acquiring Siebel applications and SQL Server 7.0 separately.

Under the agreement, both companies will work together to provide tight integration and optimization between Siebel Front Office Applications and the Microsoft Office and Windows operating system family of products.

Siebel and Microsoft have also created a Joint Technology Solution Center, located in Redmond, Wash., that will be staffed by engineers from both Siebel and Microsoft. -- Thomas Sullivan
