San Francisco, Calif. - February 10, 2004 - Embarcadero Technologies®, Inc. (NASDAQ: EMBT), a leading provider of application and data lifecycle management solutions, today announced expanded functionality for job scheduling across distributed, cross-platform enterprise environments with the general availability of Embarcadero® Job Scheduler 3.1. Job Scheduler 3.1 extends support for IBM® DB2 environments, allowing database administrators to leverage IBM DB2 for Windows/Unix/Linux as a repository for the product's infrastructure. This new version also includes utilities that simplify the migration of existing Cron jobs from Unix and Linux platforms, the ability to manually restart individual jobs in sequenced job chains, and management of scheduled tasks with an easy-to-use visual Job Set Editor.

"Job Scheduler 3.1 addresses stringent customer requirements for cross-platform job scheduling support that is highly scalable, secure, and cost-effective. By streamlining and consolidating tasks, data administrators, database managers, and systems administrators can optimize their limited resources and reduce system downtime."
