For ISVs and Enterprises the #1 application development challenge today is supporting the growing heterogeneous mix of Windows and Apple devices, UI approaches, OS versions, and emerging form factors. To turn this mounting challenge into a competitive advantage, developers need an edge, a way to virtually replicate their R&D staff several times over.Embarcadero® Delphi® XE3 is the way to build rich native applications for Windows XP to Windows 8 and Mac OS X Mountain Lion, including Retina displays, Slates, and Surface Pro, all with one codebase. Delphi is your developer force multiplier, dramatically reducing your time to market while growing your competitive advantage and business opportunity with native multi-platform deployment, component-based visual development, and heterogeneous database and cloud connectivity.
- Fastest path to Windows 8Delphi XE3 is your fast path to the Windows 8 Style UI. With Delphi’s new Metropolis UI, you can easily create apps with the new Windows 8 UI styling, including, touch enablement, live tile support, tablet sensor components, and more to run on Windows 8 desktops and x86 Surface and Slate tablets - and run on previous versions of Windows from XP to Windows 7. Delphi XE3 also lets you easily migrate existing FireMonkey and VCL applications to the new Windows 8 Style UI. Even with the latest Metropolis UI you can still compile natively to Mac OS X, with the latest Mountain Lion UI and Retina support.
- Create Windows 8 and Mac OS X Mountain Lion applications from a single codebaseWith Delphi XE3 and the FireMonkey FM2 Application Framework you write an application once and compile natively for both Windows and Mac – including 64-bit Windows and Windows 8, Mac OS X Mountain Lion and earlier Windows and Mac versions from a single codebase. Easily create super fast, cross platform native applications.
- Create more visually stunning and interactive applications for enhanced user experienceDelphi is the premiere development environment for the FireMonkey application platform. Quickly design apps that are visually spectacular, highly interactive and data rich. Your real native applications take advantage of the power and speed of the CPU and GPU.
- Connect your applications to any data, anywhereDelphi XE3 includes ISV and enterprise class integrated database and middleware and cloud support. Create industrial strength database applications from embedded to multi-tier with support for additional clients on wide variety of platforms including PC, Web, and Mobile. With Delphi XE3, you get integrated support for SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, DB2, InterBase, SQL Anywhere, SQLite, MySQL, and cloud services including Windows Azure and Amazon.
