Abstract: As corporate developers expand their scope to include the Internet and internal corporate Intranets Delphi's technological strengths in high-performance, reusable component technology help organizations realize a larger return on investment.
Today, over 600,000 copies of Delphi have been used
to produce commercial, client/server, enterprise and Internet-enabled
applications. For example:
Other companies using Delphi Client/Server Suite
to solve their business problems include: American Cyanamid, American
Stores, Arthur Anderson, AT&T, BMW, BP Shipping, Bank of America,
BBC Television, British Telecom, Compaq, DHL, EDS, Fiat, First
National Bank of Chicago, Glaxo, KPMG, Sarah Lee Knitting, Standard
& Poors, SwissBank, Union Bank, US Marine Corps, etc.
Delphi continues to set the standard for high productivity,
rapid development of high performance client, server and multi-tier
applications through the enterprise and across the Internet. Delphi
3 bridges enterprise wide client/server development and the Internet
by building upon a it's unique combination of technologies, including
rapid application development, scalable multi-tier database development,
true object-oriented reusability and high-performance native-code
compiler. Delphi 3 delivers on three key solution areas:
Delphi 3 helps reduces application complexity created
by the increased demands of the enterprise and the Internet. Delphi
adds significant functionality to cost-effectively make the transition
to large-scale computing. Delphi 3's new technologies, such as
Remote Data Broker, Packages, OLEnterprise, and Internet enablement
in Delphi 3 allow for thin client applications to be easily distributed,
configured, and maintained, thereby reducing costs. Built in support
for Microsoft systems technology including COM and ActiveX support,
allow for language interoperability so that you can leverage your
existing investments and extend them across the enterprise. High-speed
native SQL Links drivers and access to Entera Intelligent Middleware,
allow you to integrate legacy data with new systems in order to
leverage the company's knowledge base.
Delphi is the only scalable and open multi-tier architecture
that puts your business at the center of development.
For many applications, particularly in the enterprise
area, a more advanced, multi-tiered architecture has additional
advantages in scalability, security and reliability. Coupled with
the ongoing growth of corporate Intranets, we saw a natural convergence
of client/server and Internet computing to deliver a mature, enterprise
architecture that provides distributed computing capabilities
without sacrificing the productivity and maturity of tools that
exist in the client/server arena.
Delphi 3 adds over 50 new technologies. Client Insight
technologies make Delphi 3 the highest productivity, easiest-to-use
most productive tool for Windows development.
Multi-Tier Broker technologies reduce configuration
and distribution costs with ultra-thin client database applications
in a business-critical environment.
Web Enabled Client/Server technologies allow you
to deliver information over the web using your existing Delphi
This paper will discuss these
technologies and how they enable a corporation to put the important
aspects of the business at the center of development. By doing
so, you can bring development projects to completion more quickly
and scale with the growing demands of the business.
