Embarcadero Technologies Acquires High Performance Enterprise Database Connectivity Technology for Developers

SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 5, 2013 – Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced it has acquired AnyDAC from DA-SOFT Technologies. AnyDAC is a powerful, yet easy-to-use software development library for Enterprise-class data access. AnyDAC is known for its high performance, rich developer feature-set, and ease of use. Embarcadero plans to incorporate AnyDAC based technology into its multi-device app development tools which include Delphi, C++Builder, and RAD Studio. Embarcadero developer tools roadmap includes single source native deployment to Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices in 2013.

Embarcadero Delphi and C++ Builder are trusted products for developing multi-device database applications of every type of database architecture — client, client/server, multi-tier, and web services. With the addition of AnyDAC's data access technology, Embarcadero will enhance its enterprise-level development tool offerings, including the best high-speed, universal data access API that also allows developers to access database specific features and deploy across multiple operating systems and hardware platforms.

"The acquisition of AnyDAC reinforces Embarcadero's multi-device developer stack," said Michael Swindell, Embarcadero senior vice president of products. "The fast and easy-to-use AnyDAC data access technology will enhance developers' ability to integrate Enterprise database content into applications across a wide range of platforms and devices, all from single code base."

Embarcadero plans to release AnyDAC enhanced products and frameworks in 2013. Embarcadero also plans to offer Da-soft's AnyDAC customers a seamless path forward with Embarcadero products. Existing AnyDAC customers can go to http://forms.embarcadero.com/forms/AnyDAC to receive additional information and special offers for AnyDAC users as they become available.

"Under the Embarcadero brand, current AnyDAC users will have the commitment of further development by a much larger company," said AnyDAC author Dmitry Arefiev, who will continue to develop these components for Embarcadero. "The integration with Embarcadero development tools will make AnyDAC technology much more popular, allowing current users to leverage existing knowledge in many more development projects going forward."
