Being the new generation of database technology, Caché provides multiple modes of data access. Through Caché, data is only described once in a single integrated data dictionary and is instantly available using object access, high-performance SQL, and powerful multidimensional access—all of which can simultaneously access the same data.
InterSystems understands that big data applications should be able to ingest large amounts of data very quickly, model the complex data, and provide multiple ways of viewing and using the data. Caché offers fast performance, even as it scales to handle huge volumes of data, multiple cores, and large numbers of servers in distributed systems. In addition, Caché enables users to run real-time queries against transactional systems, and perform analytics on both structured and unstructured data. The product includes an application server with advanced object programming capabilities, the ability to easily integrate with a wide variety of technologies, and an extremely high-performance runtime environment with unique data caching technology.
In an instance, Navantia—a military shipbuilder based in Spain— developed and deployed an Integrated Platform Management System called COMPLEX‚ built using InterSystems’ Caché object database. Navantia realized that naval ships not only are highly capable vessels‚ they also have multi-faceted and immensely complicated information systems. COMPLEX enables integration of standard functions by extracting information from the shipyard’s design and construction data to enhance the onboard operational systems. The client opted for Caché’s access speed and massive storage capacity allowing real-time data to be incorporated into the historical database without degrading application performance.
InterSystems today have gone beyond traditional databases by incorporating a rich environment for developing sophisticated browser-based applications. Embedded technologies like DeepSee, iKnow, Zen, and Zen Mojo allow the company to rapidly develop valuable data and build sophisticated desktop applications. Apart from developing a breakthrough application, the company consistently provides clients with unique data management environment, giving them competitive advantages for the years to come. “By constantly emphasizing integrity, respect and service to clients, we have created a place where people wish to work,” concludes Phillip T. Ragon, CEO, Founder, and Owner of InterSystems.
