<p>Embarcadero’s Industry-Leading Development and Performance Solution Extends Support to SQL Server 2005 and Provides MySQL Users Access to a Cross-Platform Tool within an Enterprise Environment</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – 29 May, 2006 – Embarcadero® Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT), a leading provider of strategic data management (SDM) solutions, today announced support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and MySQL Network with the release of Embarcadero Rapid SQL® 7.4, its integrated cross-platform database development environment and performance benchmarking solution. Microsoft SQL 2005 and MySQL developers now have a comprehensive solution that gives them powerful performance benchmarking capabilities and a comprehensive workbench of time-saving tools for every major database platform, in addition to Oracle®, IBM® DB2®, Sybase®, and ODBC.</p>
<p>“Embarcadero continues to support the Microsoft SQL 2005 community by providing the best-of-breed tools that DBAs and developers need to design and deploy data management solutions. This latest release of Rapid SQL makes development much easier, accelerating the delivery of critical database applications in heterogeneous environments,” said Frank M. Dellapolla, vice president, Lazard Capital Markets LLC. “Rapid SQL’s cross-platform support will be an important factor in our adoption of Microsoft SQL Server 2005.”</p>
<p>With the release of Rapid SQL 7.4, Microsoft SQL Server developers adopting the newest version of the database server will be able to leverage their expertise with SQL Server 2000 in developing on SQL Server 2005. Further, with Embarcadero DBArtisan’s support for SQL Server 2005, database developers and DBAs can administer and optimise both their SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 databases from a single, centralised console.</p>
<p>Embarcadero Rapid SQL is an integrated development environment that enables developers to create, edit, version, tune, and deploy server-side objects residing in all major database platforms. Rapid SQL Version 7.4 incorporates advanced new project management features as well as improvements to Rapid SQL Code Analyst and Source Code Integration functionality.</p>
<p>Rapid SQL Code Analyst ensures the quality and efficiency of code with the ability to perform detailed response-time analysis on the execution of database code, such as stored procedures and functions. Code Analyst also provides historical analysis capabilities that allow a developer to know whether code is executing as expected, and if not, how far it is from agreed-upon service levels. Source Code Integration allows developers to check code into and out of source control systems without leaving the project, greatly easing the burden involved with updating code.</p>
<p>“We are pleased to offer our customers Rapid SQL 7.4 with support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 as well as the MySQL platform, which has more than 8 million installations worldwide,” said Greg Keller, vice president, product management, Embarcadero Technologies. “Creating efficient and optimised database code in a timely manner is the goal of all database developers. Writing and testing database logic is often the most time-consuming and error-prone phase of building a database application. Embarcadero Rapid SQL offers a comprehensive development solution that helps database programmers produce quality database code faster along with vastly improved database code quality.”</p>
