High Performance, Low Maintenance Key to Post-relational Database Choice

Cambridge, Mass.—June 3, 2003—InterSystems Corporation today announced that eOriginal has chosen the CACHÉ post-relational database for its Electronic Original® eCommerce product line. InterSystems, the world’s fastest growing database company, develops and markets CACHÉ, which is optimized to deliver the performance, scalability and low total cost of ownership critical to success in Web transaction processing environments.

A technology innovator in eCommerce, eOriginal develops and markets the eCore™ Business Suite. eCore is a software framework that enables the creation, transmission, management, storage, retrieval, sale, transfer and securitization of authenticated documents or information objects.

The Goal: Improve Performance, Cut Cost of Ownership

Improving application performance while simultaneously reducing the cost of system ownership were major objectives that led to the selection of CACHÉ, according to eOriginal Chief Technology Officer Bryan Caporlette. “High performance is absolutely critical to compete in the eCommerce sector,” he says. “Our customers also want us to help them lower the total cost of ownership and to make our product suite as turnkey as possible. CACHÉ is enabling eOriginal to do it all. CACHÉ delivers better performance than legacy relational technology, and it provides tools for easy system administration and management, typically eliminating the need for a DBA.”

Additionally, CACHÉ object technology was a good fit for eOriginal’s development strategy. “We’re focused on using best practices in terms of object design as we build and enhance our products. The powerful object-oriented development features provided by CACHÉ help to implement that strategy,” says Caporlette.

“We’re very pleased that eOriginal has selected and certified CACHÉ for their product line,” says InterSystems Vice President of Strategic Planning Paul Grabscheid. “We plan to work closely with them as they expand into industry sectors such as healthcare where InterSystems is already a recognized technology leader. The synergy between CACHÉ and the eOriginal product offerings makes for a strong, successful partnership.“

The CACHÉ-based eOriginal eCore Business Suite is scheduled for general availability in 3Q03.
