Embarcadero's application and database development technologies grow this month with the release of a new XE5 release of ER/Studio, DB Optimizer, and DB Change Manager.
The software now includes enhanced support for Teradata — a provider of enterprise analytics technologies including data warehousing, BI, and CRM.
The new tools bring proprietary scale and data warehouse capabilities to Teradata users who need to use Multi-Level Partitioned Primary Indexes (MLPPI) and temporal data types.
"Organizations' data continues to grow in size and complexity, outpacing the capabilities of the last generation of database tools," said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of products at Embarcadero Technologies.
Swindell wants to sell us on a suggestion that Embarcadero's new XE5 cross-platform database tools are higher capacity, support larger and more diverse platforms, and work together to support governance and compliance initiatives.
Rapid SQL XE5, a tool for cross-platform SQL development and debugging, and DBArtisan XE5, a tool for cross-platform administration and management, are enhanced to include support for Oracle 12c, SQL Server 2012, Sybase ASE 15.7, and IBM DB2 z/OS 10 and LUW 10. Both tools also now provide native 64-bit operating system support and new Windows 8 support.
With the new version of CONNECT, metadata management and collaboration include enhanced tooltips and alerts showing expanded metadata and data security and compliance alerts.
