Embarcadero® All-Access™ Gets a Boost with Latest Database Change Management Tool


Embarcadero Change Manager™ 5.1 features data masking, full Unicode support and cross-DBMS schema compare

SAN FRANCISCO – June 24, 2009 – Embarcadero Technologies is increasing the value of its All-Access tool chest with a new version of its popular database change management software. Released today, Change Manager 5.1 helps database administrators (DBAs) and developers by automating complex database change management tasks, resulting in more streamlined development cycles and fewer errors and ensuring overall database availability, performance and compliance.

Change Manager is available as a standalone tool or as part of All-Access, a single cost-effective tool chest that unlocks all of Embarcadero’s multi-platform application development and database tools. Change Manager supports IBM® DB2® for LUW, Microsoft® SQL Server, Oracle® and Sybase® from a single user interface.

New with Change Manager 5.1 is data masking, a function that helps data managers comply with data privacy legislation and protect personally identifiable information (PII) by de-identifying sensitive data from the production environment before it moves that data into the development, test or QA environments. Replacing PII data with a realistic representation produces the best testing results so developers and QA engineers can verify the application code will perform as expected in production. It can also reduce development cycles.

“It is critical for developers and QA engineers to test with realistic data, but data obfuscation products are expensive and often add time-consuming cycles to the development process. What has been missing until now is a data masking tool that works within the database change management process,” said Greg Nerpouni, Embarcadero’s senior product manager of developer solutions. “With Change Manager 5.1, we’re delivering a data masking solution that is built into the database change management cycle to facilitate collaboration and, at the same time, cut costs and development cycles by automating processes that are otherwise done by hand.”

For DBAs faced with the complicated task of managing changes between DBMS platforms, Change Manager 5.1 supports schema compare and synchronization between Oracle and SQL Server and between Sybase and SQL Server.

Other new features available in Change Manager 5.1 include Unicode support for internationalization, data movement with auto-synchronization, data comparison job history tracking and enhanced project support with Source Code Control (SCC) integration.
