OSMOSIS SB-Converter automates application migration to InterSystems Caché

Eton, UK – September 17, 2007— InterSystems Corporation and SC Systems Limited today announced the availability of the OSMOSiS Rapid Application Development (RAD) Tool on InterSystems Caché® high-performance object database. The OSMOSiS SB-Converter offers a smooth migration path and together with automated utilities enables users who developed systems in the IBM System Builder and SB+ RAD environments to easily move to the massively scalable, open standards-based Caché object database.

By running OSMOSIS on InterSystems Caché SB+ users worldwide can now confidently capitalise on their existing investments in business critical applications and the many man hours taken to develop them. Features in OSMOSiS mean that all their existing SB+ trained staff can be transitioned with ease resulting in no loss of momentum to development plans. SB+ users are no longer sidelined or orphaned but have a clear path forward.

InterSystems is a leading provider of innovative database and integration software. Its product line includes the InterSystems Caché high-performance object database, InterSystems Ensemble® rapid integration platform, and InterSystems HealthShare platform for national and regional electronic health records. SC Systems is an experienced and proven developer of RAD tools for the MultiValue market.

The MultiValue market remains robust, with many business critical and highly functional applications playing vital roles for businesses around the world. “This offering enables all System Builder and SB+ users to leverage their existing core applications by evolving them to use the very latest technologies,” says David Peters, Business Development Manager, SC Systems.

OSMOSiS is a modern RAD tool that provides a fast development cycle for both character and graphical development, with numerous visual controls. It enables the delivery of highly functional applications that have a rich look-and-feel, easy data access, and interoperability with standard desktop applications such as Microsoft Office.

David Peters adds, “exploiting the unique features of our product means that companies can take advantage of the high productivity gains of Caché with minimum disruption.” Caché’s MultiValue capabilities are not an add-on feature but are integrated through its core, as InterSystems take the needs of existing MultiValue users just as seriously as it does for those that are migrating to Caché from Oracle or Microsoft SQL-Server databases.

“In partnering with SC Systems we are giving a clear message to the SB+ community to ’come and join us‘ and with OSMOSiS on Caché experience a future-proofed, highly scalable and extendable development and deployment platform for the future,” says Graham Frost, Group MD of InterSystems UK Region.
