Connect The Dots: Embarcadero Technologies’ Update Integrates Metadata Governance Repository Knowledge With Its Database Tools

connectEmbarcadero Technologies has an update of its database tools –  ER/Studio, DBArtisan, Rapid SQL, DB Optimizer and DB Change Manager XE5 — that among its new features includes integration with its Connect metadata governance repository.

Meet The Metadata Governance Challenge

How’s your company’s metadata governance strategy? When it comes to the business planning and software development lifecycle, it’s likely it could be more solid, one company says.

“There are a ton of companies making a lot of money now providing raw storage as things like e-commerce, mobile, and cloud technologies generate big volumes of consumer and behavioral data,” says Henry Olson, director of product management at Embarcadero Technologies.  “But many organizations can’t make effective use out of it.
