High-performance database solutions
Embarcadero's XE family of database tools make it easier than ever for DBAs and developers to deliver the highest levels of performance and reliability from all their databases. Each tool in the XE product line provides you with unique capabilities and benefits:
Manage all DBMSes from a Single Window
Embarcadero's line of XE products include deep, native support for all major database platforms. Whether you work with a single type of database or many, XE database tools give you maximum insight and control while providing you with a consistent user interface across heterogeneous database environments. No more learning and toggling between different tools for each database.
XE tools simplify daily database development, administration, and optimization tasks so you can deliver improved performance with less time and effort. And with support for all major database platforms included, XE significantly reduces licensing and training costs while making it easier for organizations to standardize on tools across databases, projects, and teams.
Heterogeneous tools are more than just cross-platform
Heterogeneous tools have advantages over tools that are merely "cross-platform". Most organizations have a mix of different DBMS brands and DBMS versions. Most "cross-platform" tools typically require different tools for each database platform or use a primitive ODBC/JDBC interface with limited capability. By contrast, true heterogeneous tools such as Embarcadero XE provide users with direct, native support for each database and a single user interface across all databases and versions. Heterogeneous tools provide you with maximum performance, control, and flexibility while minimizing training costs and hassles across different DBMS platforms.
Heterogeneous tools are best for even a single-platform organization
Even for small businesses or teams within large organizations, the likelihood of inheriting an application (or purchasing a commercial packed application) with specific database requirements is high. In fact, Forrester Research says that over 90% of enterprises use DBMSes from more than one vendor. Database tools from DBMS vendors are good for their native environment only. This makes it difficult for your expertise and skills to scale. That's why Embarcadero XE tools are the best choice for high-performance data management professionals even in shops dominated by a single DBMS platform. XE tools allow you to extend your skills to different DBMS platforms as your environment changes and grows.
Streamlined Tool Manageability
All XE products are Embarcadero® ToolCloud™ enabled. The ToolCloud provides license management and on-demand tool access to reduce the cost of tool provisioning. With Embarcadero® InstantOn™, you can access XE tools when and where you need them, without installation on local machines. With the ToolCloud, you can even access multiple versions of tools without desktop conflicts.
All Embarcadero products can be upgraded to All-Access, the industry's first on-demand, heterogeneous tool chest for DBAs, developers, and architects. All-Access includes all Embarcadero tools you need with one flexible, cost-effective license.
