Statistics Cite CACHÉ as Fastest Growing Database on Windows

Cambridge, Mass.—September 2, 2003—InterSystems Corporation today announced that a just-released report from Gartner has placed them among the top five database software vendors on the Windows platform.

The leading database technology provider in healthcare and a significant player in other industry segments, InterSystems develops and markets the high performance CACHÉ database. CACHÉ is optimized for rapidly building highly scalable Web applications.

27 Percent Growth Reverses Industry Trend

The Gartner report, entitled “2002 Database Management Systems Market Share” states that the worldwide DBMS software market declined 6 percent in new license revenue and that the majority of vendors saw flat or declining growth in 2002. The RDBMS market grew by only 2 percent in the same time period, the report continues.

In sharp contrast, Gartner reported that InterSystems revenues went up by 27 percent for new licenses on the Windows platform. “Based on those figures, InterSystems is the fastest growing database provider for Windows,” says Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems vice president of strategic planning. “CACHÉ, which uniquely provides the capability to rapidly build high performance applications with advanced object technology as well as robust SQL, has been enthusiastically embraced by professional developers. And CACHÉ’s combination of high performance and low maintenance lowers the total cost of system ownership—a competitive differentiator that is clearly leading to market growth.”
