SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced Embarcadero RAD Studio has been named Top Innovator in the Developer Tools category for DeveloperWeek's Best of Tech Awards. RAD Studio was selected as the winner through a combination of peer voting and review from an independent panel of judges. Award winners were announced in advance of DeveloperWeek, a developer conference and incubator event in San Francisco, which will be held Feb. 2-7.
The DeveloperWeek award win comes on the heels of the release of Embarcadero C++Builder® XE3, a new C++ development platform for multi-device development, included in the RAD Studio product suite. C++Builder XE3 implements a completely new multi-targeting native compiler architecture that extends Embarcadero's long C++ lineage for developers, ISVs, and enterprises who need to build high-performance applications for multiple devices. The new release supports natively targeting Windows 8 and Mac OS X PCs, laptops, and Intel-based mobile devices from a single C++ codebase and development effort.
"Embarcadero RAD Studio XE3 was designed to make the job of the developer easier by providing the fastest way to build data-rich, visually engaging applications for a variety of devices including Windows, Mac and mobile," said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of marketing and product management for Embarcadero Technologies. "To receive this award from our peers is a testament that we are delivering our vision and commitment to the developer community."
"We at DeveloperWeek are excited to see the crowds choose RAD Studio for the Developer Tools Top Innovator Award," said Geoff Domoracki, CEO of Data 2.0. "The sophistication of their software should serve as a benchmark for any development technology!"
