Embarcadero Technologies Grows Delphi and C++ by 54% in 2011

Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, announced today that worldwide sales for its new RAD family of development tools, including RAD Studio, Delphi, and C++Builder, grew 54 percent over sales of the previous version in 2010, further accelerating the previous three years of consecutive 15 percent year-over-year growth of the Delphi and RAD Studio product lines.

With the release of both RAD Studio XE2 and FireMonkey in 2011, the RAD Studio suite now offers a powerful toolset to C++ and Delphi developers, enabling them to develop rich applications across desktop and mobile platforms with integrated native support for the most popular database platforms including Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, InterBase, MySQL and more.

FireMonkey, a new addition to the RAD Studio family, is a next generation application platform that enables organizations to build visually stunning HD and 3D business applications for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit), Mac, and iOS. RAD Studio XE2 is a highly productive development environment for the popular Delphi, C++ and PHP programming languages. The extensive Embarcadero developer community is the second largest Windows developer community in the world after Microsoft.

“The world for Windows developers is changing. Every month Windows developers are facing an increasing demand for Mac and Mobile, and at the same time they are expected to raise the bar on user experience and interoperability,” said Michael Swindell, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Products at Embarcadero. “Developers need tools to help them deliver on these new demands without materially increasing timelines and budgets. We’re proud that RAD Studio XE2 is helping Windows developers tame these pressures and develop rich native applications across multiple platforms from a single codebase. And this is the key driver behind Delphi and C++Builder’s impressive growth.”

According to a recent Forrester report, nearly 50 percent of businesses in North America and Western Europe now issue Mac computers in the workplace, and 27 percent of those companies offer support for the iPad. It’s clear that Apple is becoming an important factor in the Enterprise, and developers must address that as they build business applications. RAD Studio’s cross platform development capabilities address the rapidly growing Mac and iOS markets, which enables developers to reach an additional 10 to 15 percent of the Desktop market with minimal additional development cost. Developers using RAD Studio can write an application once and compile to both Windows and Mac – no need for a separate development team using different development tools or duplicating effort to create Windows and Mac versions of an application.

In fall 2011, Embarcadero hosted a RAD Studio XE2 world launch tour, which brought the Delphi developer community together in countries across North America, APAC and EMEA. Over three months, more than 70 events were held in 30 countries with almost 10,000 registered. The events showcased the new features of both RAD Studio XE2 and FireMonkey, and provided the community with a chance to learn, connect, and share their experiences with RAD Studio.
