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.

Excellent tool for data management

We have been using IRIS since 2017 and from the beginning it has allowed us to define rules that make business process management more effective. Its database is robust and allows for high efficiency and scalability. When assigned to a self-performance analytical engine, it allows for real-time decision making. It also has BI capabilities and creating APIs is simple. The implementation is also simple, I recommend.

Pros

What I like most is its reliability and high efficiency. The Software is also intuitive and has a great overall user experience. The implementation with the existing infrastructure was easy, generating little impact to the processes that we had previously.

Cons

Intersystems' technology is not yet so popular, which makes it more difficult to hire qualified people and slightly increases the learning curve.

The best object-oriented database

it is a very fast database, easy to implement and in our case, very easy to upgrade.

Pros

I like the multidimensional structure of data, it very fast

Cons

there some problems using the frontend framework (zen), you have to develop with another framework (vue, react)

Reasons for Choosing InterSystems IRIS

we worked with Caché And Ensemble, we liked the old versions of the product.

IRIS - Reliable and with an extremely fast database

Pros

Intersystems added some excellent features to the IRIS tool, among which I highlight the docker support that is really useful. The support is excellent and they have an active and willing community to help. In addition, the database is extremely performative and the fastest I have ever used. Through COS it is possible to maintain our legacy codes.

Cons

I believe that the implementation could be less complicated and the administration panel should be improved by applying the concepts of usability.

One of the best data management in the world

I not used so long the IRIS Data Platform, but in the time that I used can see that this platform can solve a lot of modern problems, create REST interfaces is very ease, and this opens a lot of possibilities, because we can connect a React application to IRIS for example.

Pros

One of the great thing about IRIS, is that Intersystems opened a little more, focusing in interoperability, we can work with a lot of things and languages, for example, using the REST api we can do anything, and there are too many other solutions as the connection with NodeJs. Resuming this is a great tool in all aspects, the management is very easy and understandable to everyone.

Cons

Some things can be hard to work, as like Machine Learning, this is a difficult question in any technology or language, and in IRIS it is not so easy too.

Reasons for Choosing InterSystems IRIS

Already know Intersystems products and solutions.

Pros

Powerfull, feature rich, robust, and simple to install and manage.

Licensing can be awkward but not something to stop the platform being used.
