Happy Holidays from Embarcadero Technologies
On July 1st, CodeGear officially became part of Embarcadero Technologies. Embarcadero products are household names and industry icons including Delphi, DBArtisan, InterBase, and ER/Studio. We will continue to innovate on and around our products to ensure they continue to create and sustain their market presence and competitiveness.
We have an incredibly healthy product pipeline for 2009. The continued integration of technologies between the DatabaseGear and CodeGear product units will be the theme for 2009. Cooking "In the Labs" are new product innovations in areas such as touch UIs, Macintosh OS X support, cross platform development, 64-bit computing, and more.
We thank you for your business in 2008. We send out the biggest and best of holiday wishes to all of our Embarcadero community members worldwide. We hope you stay warm (cool if you are in the southern hemisphere) and well.
