IDERA First to Offer Full Suite of Cross-Platform Database Lifecycle Management Solutions

Addition of Embarcadero ER/Studio and DB PowerStudio Tools to IDERA Portfolio Creates Single Vendor Solution for Database Design, Development, Security, Monitoring and Improvement

HOUSTON, TX – March 9, 2016 – IDERA, a leading provider of database lifecycle management solutions, today announced the extension of its product portfolio by adding Embarcadero Technologies’ ER/Studio and DB PowerStudio tools. For the first time, organizations around the world can rely on a single vendor to manage the full database lifecycle—design, develop, monitor and improve—across multiple platforms, including SQL Server, Oracle, and others.

In October 2015, IDERA acquired database software provider Embarcadero to expand its focus on world-class solutions that simplify and accelerate DBA productivity. Embarcadero’s database products, ER/Studio and DB PowerStudio, now join the IDERA product portfolio, creating a full suite of database lifecycle management (DLM) solutions.

Research shows that 88 percent of application managers cite the database as the common challenge or issue with application performance. As the foundation on which all IT systems, networks and applications operate, the database is the most critical element of IT infrastructure, requiring a consistent, reliable management approach.

“As an independent vendor with a database lifecycle management approach, IDERA is in a position to help IT admins resolve problems by providing deep insight into issues across multiple databases.”

“Database issues that impact application or network performance can often go undiagnosed without lengthy investigation by IT admins because they are not necessarily visible at the database level,” said Matt Aslett, Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics, 451 Research. “As an independent vendor with a database lifecycle management approach, IDERA is in a position to help IT admins resolve problems by providing deep insight into issues across multiple databases.”

IDERA is now the only third-party vendor to provide cross-platform DLM tools that meet the needs of application managers, network and IT admins, data and business architects, database developers and DBAs, alike.

IDERA’s DLM solution provides the following core capabilities:

  • Design — IDERA helps organizations design databases with data modeling tools that enable quick deployment.
