InterSystems launches new data platform

InterSystems has launched a new Data Platform, built around a high-performance database, InterSystems IRIS is the first and only data platform to provide all of the critical capabilities for rapidly developing data-intensive and mission-critical applications, including advanced data management, interoperability, transaction processing, and analytics.

The platform includes:

  • An advanced multi-model, multi-workload data management engine
  • Native interoperability
  • An open analytics platform
  • Easy deployment in cloud, on-premises or hybrid environments
  • A unique combination of horizontal and vertical scalability, enabling systems to scale up and down to accommodate rapidly changing workloads and data volumes

The development and naming of the InterSystems IRIS Data Platform is based on the company’s foundational design principles. IRIS stands for Interoperable, Reliable, Intuitive and Scalable – four attributes that InterSystems and its customers believe are required to capitalise on the growing volumes of data entering organisations every day.

According to a recent IDC InfoBrief, commissioned by InterSystems, entitled “Choosing a DBMS to Address the Challenges of the Third Platform,” 47 percent of organisations report that untimely data has negatively impacted their business. One of the biggest drivers of untimely data is the reliance on extract, transform, and load (ETL) infrastructures to move data between applications and platforms. By simultaneously performing transactions and analytics in one unified platform, InterSystems IRIS eliminates the need for ETL and provides immediate insights and actions based on the most current data. With native interoperability, the platform integrates seamlessly with existing architectures, systems, and devices accelerating the development and delivery of data-driven applications.

The InterSystems IRIS Data Platform will be available worldwide in January 2018.
