<p>Embarcadero DBArtisan® Workbench Offers Complete Solution for Managing Multiple Database Platforms Throughout the Enterprise</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – May 13, 2004 - Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT), a leading provider of cross-platform data lifecycle management solutions, today announced that Embarcadero DBArtisan Workbench has been extended to support IBM DB2 Universal Database (UDB), versions 7.2 and 8.1. This analysis-focused version of the industry-leading DBArtisan tool already supports the Oracle®, Microsoft® SQL Server®, and Sybase® ASE database platforms. Today’s announcement allows DB2 database professionals to rely on the same powerful management and performance diagnostic capabilities from Embarcadero that nearly 11,000 companies, including 97 of the Fortune 100 companies, have come to rely on in managing their complex database environments.</p>
<p>Embarcadero DBArtisan Workbench is the market’s most comprehensive database administration solution. It includes all three of the Embarcadero Analyst Series components: DBArtisan Space Analyst, DBArtisan Capacity Analyst, and DBArtisan Performance Analyst. Through a powerful yet intuitive user interface, database professionals can now quickly and easily maximize DB2 performance by detecting and correcting problems early without coding long and complicated scripts. Users can also prevent downtime by anticipating future database growth and adding capacity before problems occur, and save time by automating the space maintenance of DB2 objects.</p>
<p>“With one solution, IBM DB2 professionals can now leverage Embarcadero’s built-in intelligence to ease the process of troubleshooting and resolving problems that threaten the availability and performance of mission-critical databases,” said Robin Schumacher, vice president of product management, Embarcadero Technologies. “With the additional support for the latest versions of DB2 to DBArtisan’s award-winning cross-platform functionality, we instantly expand the existing skill set of database professionals across multiple database platforms from a single point of control, allowing them to obtain better results with tight resources.”</p>
<p>Embarcadero DBArtisan Workbench includes key updates for DB2 including:</p>
<p>Embarcadero Space Analyst
* Provides a global view of DB2 database space usage for database partitions, table spaces, objects, and logs.
* Allows database administrators to quickly move between diagnosis and correction of space and object fragmentation-related problems.
