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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
