March 2011 pricing for developer tools from Embarcadero

A couple of days ago I received an email from David I at Embarcadero to various partners publicising special pricing for developer tools, including an upgrade amnesty. A prĂ©cis of the post is available on David I’s blog and a summary can be seen below.

Since the post focused on US$ and € pricing I figured I should find some £ pricing as well and have got some figures from Grey Matter.

  • Upgrade Amnesty

    Normally, upgrade prices to the XE range (Delphi XE, RAD Studio XE, etc.) are only available to users of the 2007-2010 range of products. For March 2011 there is an amnesty, and the upgrade prices apply to all earlier versions.

    For UK customer, this gives the following prices:

    Upgrade to Price
    Delphi XE Professional or C++Builder XE Professional £356 + VAT
    Delphi XE Enterprise or C++Builder XE Enterprise £714 + VAT
    Delphi XE Architect or C++Builder XE Architect £1,642 + VAT
    RAD Studio XE Professional £571 + VAT
    RAD Studio XE Enterprise £1,071 + VAT
    RAD Studio XE Architect £1,999 + VAT

    More information is available at http://www.embarcadero.com/radspecial.

  • XE Professional to XE Enterprise Upgrade Special Prices

    Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio XE Professional owners get $700-$1000 off upgrades to XE Enterprise by purchasing discounted XE Professional to XE Enterprise upgrade SKUs. With this offer, Professional users can get DataSnap and more.

    The UK pricing on this offer looks like this (the XE license must have been purchased before 1st February 2011):
