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.

The best Interoperability, performance database and application development platform

it's the greatest investment we have made to solve any business issues and ongoing challenges and daily requirements.

Pros

Complete application development platform with variety of options to store data formats, support for various computer languages to interact and also include solid Interoperability platform.

Cons

I like the software platform and great software company in general. Some documentation needs improvments.

Reasons for choosing InterSystems IRIS

We are already running major application. We know the data reliability and performance plus the software is able to solve challenges.

Reasons for switching to InterSystems IRIS

The old software had limitation on software license, limitation on business requirements for various Interoperability and reliability issues.

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.

Powerful Healthcare Integration Platform

I have used this product for nearly 10 years, to implement healthcare interfaces in many & varied settings, from simple to complex. It is very robust and performs well in production environments.

Pros

The Multi-Model architecture is really powerful for Developers. Also, the HL7 parsing and Message tracing capabilities are excellent.

Cons

Whilst the Studio IDE is very good in general, I hope to see continued development of this product in line with other popular IDEs. Also, graphical testing tools would be beneficial.
