<p>Job Scheduler 3.2 Reduces Risk of Job Failure; Ensures Smooth Execution of Scheduled Database Maintenance Tasks 24 X 7</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – 18 October, 2004 – Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:EMBT), a provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today announced the release of Embarcadero® Job Scheduler™ 3.2, a powerful cross-platform job management tool that automates database maintenance and other routine tasks. By expanding cross-platform support to include MySQL®, Embarcadero Job Scheduler 3.2 fills an industry void for critical third-party tools, further driving the adoption of the MySQL platform. It is the one of the first major third-party job automation tools to support both the MySQL platform and Oracle® Database 10g, allowing database administrators to schedule tasks on the latest commercial and open source technologies.</p>
<p>“Our business is increasingly reliant on multiple enterprise applications to run critical components of our operations and collect important customer and market information,” said Albert Prast, chief information officer at Rotech Healthcare, Inc. “This requires processing complex business flows, incorporating both database and operating system batch jobs. Embarcadero Job Scheduler is a reliable scheduling solution that provides greater automation for our environments and expands database coverage to allow us to accomplish our objectives more quickly and easily.”</p>
<p>With Embarcadero Job Scheduler 3.2, database administrators have a reliable cross-platform enterprise scheduling solution that helps boost productivity and implement best practices. Job Scheduler 3.2 streamlines automated job runs to help prevent failures that may otherwise result from maintaining databases in complex IT environments. With bolstered wildcard support to better manage additional file dependencies, Job Scheduler 3.2 saves time for data professionals because they no longer need to add or remove files individually. Improved enterprise job filtering increases the efficiency of database professionals even in the largest of environments by giving them the ability to better identify and tackle the most important jobs first.</p>
<p>“Implementing more reliable and systematic database routines becomes critical for data professionals as data continues to grow in volume and complexity,” said George Kaponay, director for Asia Pacific for Embarcadero Technologies. “Job Scheduler ensures that data professionals remain focused on high-order business objectives by eliminating manual and routine tasks, centralising management of all tasks, and promoting optimal availability and performance.”</p>
