Embarcadero Scales Up with ER/Studio XE

Embarcadero Technologies has lifted the lid on ER/Studio XE, the latest version of its database design and data-modeling suite. The new tools offer better scalability and expanded database management system (DBMS) support for Netezza’s TwinFin appliance running versions 5.0 and 4.6

Embarcadero has positioned ER/Studio XE as a collaborative way for data management professionals to build and maintain enterprise-scale databases and data warehouses. Built-in facilities with this release include the ability to automate routine modeling tasks so users can analyze and optimize databases and data warehouse structures.

With an improved and more scalable server-side repository for model management, ER/Studio XE introduces what Embarcadero hopes will be perceived as a more productive way to share, document, and publish models and metadata to distributed teams.

With the release of ER/Studio XE, Embarcadero is also announcing its partnership with Netezza, a provider of data warehouse, analytic and monitoring appliances. By adding support for Netezza 5.0 and 4.6, customers can leverage ER/Studio XE to design and maintain their data warehouse architectures.

"More organizations are moving beyond traditional data warehouse and business intelligence approaches to more cost-effective, high-performance alternatives," said Matt Rollender, director of technology and strategic alliances, Netezza. "Our partnership with Embarcadero gives our customers industry-leading data modeling support that will help them better understand their data and provide even more meaningful information to their business users."

Analyst reports suggest that more Embarcadero customers are relying on business analytics and are turning to Netezza for its state-of-the-art data warehouse appliances. ER/Studio XE supports Oracle, DB2, Sybase, MS SQL Server, InterBase, Netezza, Teradata, MySQL, and PostgreSQL from a single window.

"With a faster and more highly scalable repository, and by expanding ER/Studio’s DBMS support for Netezza, our customers can better manage and reuse their existing data assets and ultimately optimize internal processes to save time and money," said Jason Tiret, director of modeling and architecture solutions, Embarcadero Technologies.
