Embarcadero makes data lifecycle management software for building, testing, optimizing, and managing application infrastructure and databases for large corporations and government agencies. Its software is used for modeling, change management, performance optimization, and administration of database platforms. Embarcadero has customers in advertising, healthcare and science, geology, human resources, security, business, retail, entertainment, transportation, and manufacturing. It claims that about three million software developers around the world are Embarcadero users. Founded in 1993, the company is a division of Idera Inc., a database company based in Houston.


Embarcadero's tools are designed to help software developers and businesses that manage data design, build, and optimize their enterprise applications and database systems across a number of database platforms, operating systems, frameworks, and programming languages. The company's development tools include RAD Studio, Delphi, and C++ Builder. It offers the InterBase SQL database.

Geographic Reach

Embarcadero's corporate headquarters are in Austin, Texas. Outside of the US and Canada, the company also has operations in Latin America, Japan, Europe, the Middle East and Africa region, and the Asia/Pacific region.

Sales and Marketing

Customers include independent software vendors (ISVs), systems integrators (SIs) and VARs, to government organizations, OEMs, and IT and R&D groups within the largest enterprises. Embarcadero claims as customers 90 members of the Fortune 100 and that its products have been used by more than 3 million developers.


Embarcadero continues to introduce new products to keep pace with evolving industry standards. In 2019, Embarcadero released offered licenses for FmxLinux for Delphi, which allows developers to compile desktop applications for 64-bit Linux. FmxLinux is a toolchain for compiling Linux desktop applications using Embarcadero’s Linux compiler for Delphi, which is also part of the RAD Studio bundle.

The company partners with other companies to offer integrated products. It teamed with TMS Software to offer application integration capabilities with cloud services. The partnership is to provide developers access cloud services programmatically in minutes instead of studying service API documentation for hours.

Embarcadero has developed a following among developers in 30 years of business. Its 3 million users provide an element of credibility as does its relationship with parent, Idera Inc.

Despite its longevity, Embarcadero faces still competition from larger companies with vast resources. Competitors include BMC and CA.
