<p>Cross-platform Data Solutions Further Embarcadero’s Commitment to IBM DB2/UDB with Advanced Features, and Support for z/OS version 8.0 and DB2 Stinger</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – 2 August, 2004 - Embarcadero Technologies, a provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today announced that it is strengthening its complete DB2 product line to support the latest versions of DB2 Universal Database (UDB) for z/OS® and multi-platforms. In its quest to provide database administrators, database developers, and data architects with the most powerful third-party tools and solutions for their DB2 implementations, Embarcadero continues its commitment to deliver its product upgrades on the heels of any major platform release. Embarcadero's continuing end-to-end DB2 support ensures that customers will have at their disposal the mission-critical solutions they need as they migrate to these new versions of the DB2 UDB platform.</p>
<p>As a long-standing, active IBM and IDUG partner, Embarcadero Technologies is able to develop new versions of its products in parallel with the development of any major new version of the DB2 UDB platform, allowing for the timely release of Embarcadero’s high-quality solutions following platform availability.</p>
<p>“Our continuing development around DB2 is in direct response to our DB2 customers who look to us to provide true cross-platform solutions across all aspects of managing data, from development and administration, to modeling and data integration, to testing,” said Robin Schumacher, vice president, product management for Embarcadero Technologies. “With the support of DB2 UDB for z/OS version 8.0 and of DB2 Stinger, we are reiterating to our DB2 customers that we are committed to helping them ensure the availability of the information that drives their businesses.”</p>
<p>Virtually every product in Embarcadero Technologies’ product line supports IBM DB2. DBArtisan® 7.3 and Rapid SQL® 7.3 provide extensive DB2 support in the areas of database administration and development. ER/Studio® 6.5 facilitates data modeling of DB2 database architectures that can then be used within the DT/Studio® 2.2 environment for the migration and integration of data across all RDBMS platforms, including DB2.</p>
<p>Key database tools such as Embarcadero Job Scheduler™ 3.1 and Change Manager™ 2.5 can be leveraged for the scheduling of DB2 database management tasks, or with change control in a DB2 database environment, respectively. And those running applications on the DB2 platform can perform comprehensive goals-based performance testing using Embarcadero Extreme Test™ to ensure the performance and availability of these applications following upgrades to new versions of the database.</p>
<p>With its core expertise in data and database management, Embarcadero Technologies offers the most complete line of DB2 software tools available. Whether data professionals are designing new databases, orchestrating extensive data migrations, developing complex SQL-PL code, or managing the performance and availability of hundreds of DB2 applications, the solutions offered by Embarcadero Technologies will save them both time and money, and can help to ensure the success of their critical IBM systems.</p>
