Solution Ensures Rapid Integration Across Broad Spectrum of Disparate Systems

BOSTON, MA.–April 25, 2005 – InterSystems Corporation, the leading application platform provider in healthcare, and Boston Software Systems™, the leader in workflow automation technology to the healthcare market, today announced a partnership whereby InterSystems is offering Boston Software Systems’ technology, Boston WorkStation, as an optional adapter for its Ensemble universal business integration platform. Ensemble enables enterprises to quickly build and deploy new business solutions that leverage the functionality of existing applications, orchestrate new business processes and integrate data from across the enterprise.

“Ensemble includes support for more than 200 adapters that enable rapid connectivity to a wide array of disparate applications, databases and technologies,” said Trevor Matz, managing director, Ensemble at InterSystems. “Boston WorkStation is a pervasive tool that will further extend Ensemble’s integration capabilities, enabling Ensemble to rapidly connect to applications that do not have well-defined or exposed interfaces.”

Ensemble stands out as the only application integration platform to incorporate the functionality of integration and application servers, a high performance database, and a unified development and management environment in a single, architecturally consistent product. Ensemble’s unique architecture enables it to address even the most complex integration projects far more rapidly and cost-effectively than is typical with other integration technologies.

“Boston WorkStation strengthens the Ensemble integration engine and allows InterSystems to offer a more complete solution to its customers,” said Steve Cohen, executive vice president for Boston Software Systems. “Our partnership with InterSystems validates the benefits that Boston WorkStation can provide to application platform providers in the healthcare industry.”
