Business Objects and MySQL today announced the signing of a new OEM referral agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will jointly sell integrated solutions that combine the MySQL Network database subscription service with business intelligence software from Business Objects. The new solutions offer customers a cost-effective way to deploy an integrated business intelligence and database solution, at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional, proprietary databases.

In April 2005, Business Objects and MySQL announced a partnership to embed MySQL database technology into BusinessObjects XI for use on Linux and UNIX operating systems. With the addition of this new OEM referral agreement, the two companies have created several bundled offerings for reporting and data integration for the MySQL database through MySQL Network. These solutions are tested, certified, and supported jointly by Business Objects and MySQL.
