Federal Express has signed up Sybase for a global development deal that should provide the troubled relational database supplier with its largest contract to date.
Fedex, which has used Sybase products for the past five years, plans to use Sybase?s database, middleware and Powersoft development tools to produce a distributed computing infrastructure that will link its operations worldwide and enable it to move away from its current mainframe-centric environment.
The enterprise agreement will allow Fedex to use all existing Sybase products and gives it immediate access to any upgrades or new products that are introduced.
As part of the deal, Sybase?s Professional Services arm will provide Fedex with onsite support and services.
