Since 1983, Borland has been simplifying and speeding the process of application development. As a pioneer in this space, Borland launched one of the first PC development environments, Turbo Pascal, which made possible the commercial development of PC applications. Through the years, Borland has anticipated the need of millions of software professionals around the world; the company has continually refined its technology to meet the evolving demands of business environments. In 1996, Borland began expanding its offerings to serve a broader range of customers: the company launched a Java™ development environment with the award-winning Borland JBuilder, which is now the industry leader in the expansive Java development space. In 1997, the company acquired VisiGenic Software, enabling Borland to extend its application development expertise to enterprise application deployment. The year 2001 brought the launch of Borland Kylix, a development environment for the Linux platform. Within six months, Kylix became the industry leader in this space.
Today, Borland continues to deliver on its mission to help customers embrace the future without abandoning the past. Borland carries out this mission by supporting the major software architectures used to develop, deploy, integrate and manage enterprise e-business applications. These include the Sun® J2EE™ platform and the Microsoft® .NET™ framework. Keeping pace with the rapid evolution of enterprise information technology, Borland has emerged as a key player in delivering development and deployment solutions for robust, standards-based Web Services and wireless applications.
