IRIS is the next step for the future

We use IRIS for integration with labs and the implementation with all labs and our central clinic has been quick and easy. Using HL7 very easy and calls APIs and Database without create big transformations. Using IRIS as repository of data of patients, making a RESP API with only 3 clicks and deploy it in production without stop any process.... We saved a lot of time and money.

Pros

This is the best all-in-one for interoperability application that I've used ever. It is easy to use, easy to learn and is supported by a big community that can help me.

Cons

IRIS requires a qualified person for its administration, there is a lot of configurations, levels, permissions, etc.. It's not easy configure security with a out-standard configuration.

Reasons for Switching to InterSystems IRIS

We switch to the upper version of the product for security

Best in-memory database but bit unpolished

My overall experience was good as the query performance increased, and the time required for managing the database fell greatly in these two odd months, from when we began.

Pros

The speed of performance of IRIS is too good and fast. We were able to get around 2500% increase in query performance after our switch, which is too good. Also the process of migration and scaling due to heavy lifting is also easier.

Cons

We hit several barriers in implementing as it is still quite new and had to use some workarounds as there wasn't much clarity in the documentation

Reasons for Switching to InterSystems IRIS

We saw the performance results of this database on a website and decided to test it, and we had huge improvement in performance in running queries. This is of paramount importance in our application system and we decided to try to switch in testing, the tests went great and we deployed it about two months ago. Since then the average time to maintain it has been quite low than SAP hana that we used for about 18 months now.

Having lots of features comes at a cost

Support is very good, as soon as you have an issue you can open a discussion in a small but growing community, or contact support that will help you as a peer developer if needed.

Pros

Having an inmense amount of features integrated with the solution, from web interface, to interfaces with different kind of technologies, to database.

Cons

Having that vast catalog of features comes with a cost (literally and figurative) integration makes harder, although InterSystems is working to simplify it.

Reasons for Choosing InterSystems IRIS

It was already in place.

Great tool for data management.

Pros

With IRIS it is very easy and simple to manage data, including several formats. The support is very good, fast and accurate. The software has incredible confidence.

Cons

The program administrator must be well prepared, as the settings must be very well controlled, there are several levels of settings.
