Embarcadero Technologies Inc. aims to make it easier to manage computing environments that run databases from several vendors. Upgrades to the company's DBArtisan and SQL Debugger tools, to be announced this week, will let database administrators manage and develop applications across IBM, Oracle Corp., Microsoft Corp. and Sybase Inc. databases, even if they have expertise in only one of those platforms.
By providing this single point of control, the Embarcadero tools could reduce the cost of operating in an enterprise with multiple databases, said officials of the San Francisco company.
DBArtisan 7.0 can be used to store, retrieve, view and edit XML and other data types within the common user interface. SQL Debugger principally adds support for DB2 so that developers will experience the same look and feel when working with IBM databases as with Oracle, Microsoft and Sybase databases.
