<p>New Release Enables Performance Benchmarking of Stored Procedures;</p>
<p>Advances in Automation Improve Productivity and Quality of Code</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – 21 October, 2004 – Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:EMBT), a provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today announced the first database development tool to enable cross-platform performance benchmarking of stored procedures and functions in a single console with the release of Embarcadero Rapid SQL® 7.3. Rapid SQL 7.3 improves the quality of code and saves developers time by giving them powerful performance benchmarking capabilities to pinpoint the exact objects and lines of code that take the longest to run in a database. Armed with these advanced benchmarking capabilities and a comprehensive workbench of time-saving tools for every major database platform, Rapid SQL 7.3 accelerates the delivery of critical database applications.</p>
<p>“I have used Embarcadero Rapid SQL on multiple client assignments on multi-platforms and it’s always exceeding my expectations,” said Ken Hill, senior database architect at Atos Origin, a leading international IT services company. “As a user of Embarcadero’s products for a decade, I've found that, no matter what the platform – SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, or Oracle – the consistency and ease-of-use of their products increases my productivity. Rapid SQL, in particular, streamlines the process of writing database code, allowing us to get better performance out of our databases and deliver quality database applications with ease.”</p>
<p>Embarcadero Rapid SQL is an integrated development environment that enables developers to create, edit, version, tune, and deploy server-side objects residing in all major database platforms. Version 7.3 introduces three powerful, time-saving features for developers:</p>
<p>• Rapid SQL Code Analyst
• Rapid SQL Code Workbench
• Wizard-driven Data Import</p>
<p>“Top-notch database development demands the highest quality code, and, until now, developers have been hampered by the lack of database code benchmarking tools on the market,” said George Kaponay, director for Asia Pacific at Embarcadero Technologies. “Rapid SQL 7.3 fills the void for quality database benchmarking tools and arms developers with a tool that may very well become a key weapon in their arsenal.”</p>

<p>Key Features of Rapid SQL 7.3 –</p>
<p>• Rapid SQL Code Analyst – Ensures quality and efficient code with the ability to perform detailed response-time analysis on the execution of database code, such as stored procedures and functions. Code Analyst also provides historical analysis capabilities that allow a developer to know whether code is executing as expected, and if not, how far it is from agreed-upon service levels.</p>
<p>• Rapid SQL Code Workbench – Shortens development time with a user-configurable development tool that provides users with the ability to store and retrieve blocks of code for quick re-use/deployment, as well as to utilise column lookups and auto-completion of long SQL statements. It also extends knowledge of staff by allowing senior database developers to export all code templates so that newer developers can get up-to-speed more quickly.</p>
<p>• Wizard-driven Data Import – Rapid SQL 7.3 eliminates the time-intensive, manual process associated with importing data from external sources by allowing database developers to import data from flat files such as an Excel spreadsheet with just three wizard-driven steps. This feature also helps Business Analysts by giving them the ability to quickly import critical data for more in-depth queries, and pull meaningful data to make informed decisions.</p>
