SQL Distribution

Notice 20-BA |  09 September 2020

Dear Partner,

We have been working with our partner, Microsoft, on reviewing our SQL distribution in connection with Sage products and services.

Note: This is in connection with the purchase of Microsoft SQL via Sage for Sage 200, Sage 1000 or Sage X3 only within UK & Ireland.

Microsoft has suggested that some of our partners and customers might not be deploying SQL in compliance with the End User License Agreement ("EULA") we have in place with Microsoft.

We are emailing to ask you for your support in reviewing your business's compliance with the EULA. To assist you when undertaking this review, we are providing the following information:

  • A copy of the EULA for SQL sold in connection with Sage 200 (2016 variant).
  • An FAQ to provide clarity on a variety of scenarios.

Once you have reviewed the material our ask is that you:

  • Use the attached workflow to check and ensure you and your customers are compliant and operating within the terms of the EULA, and if not put in measures to resolve any compliance issues you may identify by the end of September 2020.
  • Complete this short survey to understand any additional scenarios we may need to provide clarity on.

Should you have any questions, please contact your account manager.

Kind regards

Hesham El Komy
