Embarcadero's XE products make it easier than ever for DBAs and developers to get the suite of products they need to deliver the highest possible levels of performance and reliability from all their databases. Every tool in the XE product line brings you significant new 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.
Streamlined Tool Manageability
All XE products also include AppWave, which delivers one-click access to XE products as well as centralized licensing and software usage tracking.
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.
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.
XE provides significant cost savings
Organizations can reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO) via ToolCloud management and deployment of XE products. Cost-savings are achieved through:
