Embarcadero is now equipping Sybase ASE developers and DBAs with a toolset to simplify their development, database administration and performance tuning tasks. The new DB PowerStudio for Sybase ASE combines several of Embarcadero's most popular database tools into an aggressively priced suite. The toolset helps Sybase ASE professionals boost productivity by eliminating time-consuming development and administration tasks, while also improving the performance and availability of their databases.
Designed specifically for Sybase ASE database professionals, DB PowerStudio delivers proven workflows to build and maintain mission-critical Sybase ASE database applications, streamline the database change management process, and quickly pinpoint and fix performance bottlenecks.
The DB PowerStudio for Sybase ASE suite is available in a Developer Edition and a DBA Edition. The Developer Edition includes Rapid SQL, an integrated development environment (IDE) that simplifies SQL scripting, query building, object management and version control in live databases or offline source code repositories; DB Optimizer, a graphical SQL performance optimization tool that allows users to quickly discover, diagnose and optimize poor-performing SQL with an interactive Visual SQL Tuner; and DB Change Manager, a tool that simplifies tasks such as tracking and reporting on database changes, rolling out new releases, and pinpointing the cause of performance problems stemming from changes in data, schema and database configuration. DB Change Manager also allows test data to be masked to comply with privacy mandates.
The DBA Edition also includes DB Optimizer and DB Change Manager, as well as DBArtisan for advanced database administration. DBArtisan is a database administration tool that enables DBAs to work with multiple Sybase ASE databases, including various versions, from a single interface. DBArtisan provides graphical editors and wizards to streamline routine tasks and reduce errors so users can manage large, complex databases more efficiently; and it also helps identify performance, capacity and storage management issues before they become problems.
All of the tools within the toolset support multiple versions of Sybase from a single interface. "Any Sybase ASE professional will tell you that, with the right tools at their fingertips, they can do their jobs with increased efficiency and accuracy and help IT exceed their service levels," says Scott Walz, senior director of product management for Embarcadero. "With DB PowerStudio for Sybase ASE, we're putting some of our most powerful and well regarded database tools into their hands, enabling them to maximize their resources and tackle critical tasks such as database change management and SQL optimization with new levels of speed and ease."
DB PowerStudio comes with Embarcadero's ToolCloud technology, which enables users to access the latest version of DB PowerStudio from any Windows desktop instantly, without requiring a conventional install. It also allows larger organizations to track and manage license usage to minimize licensing costs and maximize team productivity.
Embarcadero also provides similar toolsets targeted at Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server DBAs and developers. For more information about the suite for Sybase ASE users, go here.
