DB Power Studio XE3 Brings New Power to Database Management

Providing Un-Matched Efficiencies and Usability for Database Management and Development

SAN FRANCISCO May 1, 2012— Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, announced the next generation of its award-winning database management and development platform, DB Power Studio XE3. DB Power Studio is designed to bring speed and efficiency to database management with a single, easy-to-use suite of tools, and the XE3 version introduces new enhancements that further improve both performance and availability of databases.

“Embarcadero is recognized as a leading provider of database tools, and DB Power Studio is one of the top database management suites available today for one simple reason – it goes beyond the basics to consistently deliver the latest, cutting edge tools that get the job done right the first time,” said Scott Walz, senior director of product management. “DB Power Studio XE3 brings valuable enhancements to database management, and connects DBA’s, business analysts, application developers, database developers, and other users, in a way that wasn’t previously possible.”

A significant improvement to the latest version is increased coverage across database platforms, making it even easier for database managers and administrators to do their jobs well. DB Power Studio XE3 does this by delivering multiple feature enhancements for each product in the suite, including DB Artisan, Rapid SQL, and DB Optimizer, as well as direct access to our highly trained support team.

“DB Optimizer and the DB Power Studio suite have been my database management tools of choice for some time,” said Karen Morton, Senior Technical Consultant, Enkitec. “The new Visual SQL Tuning capabilities in DB Power Studio XE3 are particularly exciting, as the diagrams in previous versions have been worth their weight in gold. With DB Power Studio, I can easily show developers where problems in a plan exist simply by pointing to a Visual SQL Tuning diagram, a feat that would have taken far longer with a typical text-based plan display. Embarcadero is at the forefront of providing the cutting-edge tools that database managers and administrators need most, and we’re looking forward to uncovering new capabilities with DB Power Studio XE3.”

DBArtisan and Rapid SQL

For the very first time, DBArtisan will no longer require a database client. Instead, it can directly connect to the database for you without the usual hassles and extra steps. DBArtisan and Rapid SQL also provide introductory support for Sybase IQ. Other key enhancements to both DBArtisan and Rapid SQL include:

Connectivity updates:

  • Direct Type 4 JDBC Driver Support
  • Oracle/Sybase Client Selection Support

Sybase IQ Support:

  • Register and connect to Sybase IQ datasources
  • Explorer visibility of the following object types: DBSpaces, Domains, Foreign Keys, Functions, Groups, Indexes, Join Indexes, Primary Keys, Procedures, System Indexes, System Tables, System Triggers, Tables, Triggers, Users, and Views
  • Extract and Drop object actions are available for all supported object types.
  • Database Monitor functionality providing live details on connected users and table locks as well as status information
  • SQL Editor support

DB Optimizer

Embarcadero was one of the first to recognize the importance of Visual SQL Tuning tools, and the latest version of DB Optimizer introduces tuning reports, which enable increased collaboration between database administrators and managers. This significantly cuts down on time associated with query tuning. With XE3, DB Optimizer is also introducing key profiling updates, such as:

  • Enhanced filtering for profiling sessions
  • Improved repository management when capturing profiles into a database
