Constant Contact Chooses SkySQL for MySQL Support

Constant Contact, a provider of marketing services to over 450,000 businesses worldwide, recently announced the selection of SkySQL as its go-to choice for MySQL-related support, software, and other services.

Specializing in online marketing through email, surveys, social media, and more, Constant Contact’s customer base extends all over the globe.  With so many customers depending on the company for their online marketing needs, Constant Contact was in need of the proper support to accompany its move towards open source with MySQL.  SkySQL was eventually selected for a variety of reasons, and has helped Constant Contact with building and deploying a sturdy MySQL database architecture.  In addition, SkySQL has aided Constant Contact with training 10 database administrators over the course of several months to facilitate MySQL adoption. 

Dan Berry, Constant Contact’s director of database services, explained the reasoning behind the company’s selection of SkySQL in the official press release: “Embracing open source has been an important move for our company.  This company directive means not only finding the right database architecture, but also making sure we have the right support for what we are implementing. Our biggest concern was finding a knowledgeable team that could provide great service at an affordable price. We found SkySQL to be the perfect combination of those qualities.”  He added: “We’ve been very pleased with the customer service and overall responsiveness of SkySQL.  Whether it was questions about how to replicate across data centers or suggestions on which other third-party tools might be available to help us, SkySQL made themselves completely available to us.”

SkySQL is an open source company that specializes in MySQL database solutions for both enterprise and cloud environments that stress cost-effectiveness and reliable customer service.  Much of the company’s expertise comes from its founders comprised of former MySQL AB executives, personnel, and investors, which has earned SkySQL a trusted reputation amongst its customers worldwide.  Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, SkySQL also operates in North America, Europe, and Asia.  By choosing SkySQL for its MySQL support, Constant Contact joins an impressive client list that includes Canal+, ATOS Worldline, and Virgin Mobile, just to name a few.

SkySQL’s director for North America Matt Fredrickson commented on SkySQL’s appeal: “Customers continue to see the value of SkySQL’s unique expertise in the MySQL industry.  Combining that expertise with an affordable price point has helped our company solidify its position in the MySQL market. We look forward to working with Constant Contact to help them embrace all that open source has to offer.”

Apelon Announces MySQL Support for Open DTS

Apelon, an international provider of software and services in the realms of data standardization and interoperability, announced that it has officially added MySQL database support for its Open DTS (Distributed Terminology System) offering. 

Apelon focuses on improving the accessibility, comparability, and overall quality of data for a host of enterprises in the healthcare industry, as well as several government agencies and life sciences organizations.  With the addition of MySQL support to Open DTS, Apelon has displayed its commitment to appeasing its customers with an open source solution to efficiently manage and deploy data standards.

Apelon completed the DTS transition to open source in 2007.  Besides having MySQL in its support lineup, Open DTS also supports a wide variety of popular database platforms, including Oracle, SQL Server, and DB2.  Open DTS specializes in centralizing terminology knowledge for various national standards, such as LOINC, NDF-RT, and RxNorm.  Used by researchers, healthcare integrators, and more, Open DTS offers a laundry list of terminology services that includes aggregation to other network applications, lookup, normalization, and translation.  Since its move to open source, Open DTS has been downloaded by over 3,500 customers worldwide. 

As the healthcare industry’s demand for interoperability and data sharing grows, the availability of open source solutions such as MySQL and Open DTS is vital.  Healthcare organizations can lower their dependence on proprietary software while obtaining various advantages, such as lower costs and improved integration.  At the same time, organizations can leverage the power of the innovative minds of developers that make up the open source community.

Apelon president and CEO Stephen Coady discussed his company’s move to support MySQL in the official press release: “Apelon has helped many healthcare organizations render health data more comparable, leading to increased data sharing and broader access.  By supporting MySQL we enable the use of sophisticated terminology tools without requiring the user to significantly burden the database management system resources of an organization. This Open DTS upgrade is another example of our commitment to the open source model. Apelon is thrilled to be enabling interoperability initiatives, because care records, combined and comparable, will dramatically improve quality and lower cost.”
