The database you choose, the efficiency of your SQL queries, and the performance of your database can have a big impact on the overall performance of your software applications.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Create visually rich high performing business applications for Windows and Mac with FireMonkey, RAD Studio XE2 and InterBase XE
  • Utilize the full power of a true SQL IDE by using Rapid SQL as your single tool for all your database development needs
  • Simplify, automate and report on database changes with DB Change Manager
  • Protect sensitive data and enable compliance using InterBase XE
  • Take advantage of InterBase’s ability to provide consistent, fast and reliable transaction processing based on multi-version architecture
  • Measure and test all areas where performance can be affected with DB Optimizer
