Company Recognized for ARIES Rapid Implementation Methodology

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 10, 2013 — InterSystems, a global provider of advanced software technologies for breakthrough applications, today announced it was named to this year’s InformationWeek 500, a list of the top technology innovators in the U.S.

InterSystems was recognized for developing the ARIES (Architecture for Rapid Implementation of Enterprise Systems) methodology for rapidly implementing complex, large-scale enterprise software systems, including multi-facility, regional, and national systems. InterSystems created the methodology as a service to its global clients.

“There are widely published statistics about the high failure rate of large-scale IT projects. Most fail because they take far too long, the methodology or the product is too rigid, or there’s inadequate focus on user adoption,” said John Paladino, Vice President of Client Services at InterSystems. “We engineered the ARIES methodology for rapid user adoption, flexibility, and an iterative approach to client involvement. Using ARIES, we have successfully deployed our software in complex, large-scale health delivery networks. And we stay with the client after go-live and make any necessary adjustments until users are confident the system is helping them do their jobs more easily.”

“The theme of this year’s InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It’s a movement rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer‐focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear,” said InformationWeek Editor in Chief Rob Preston. “Every enterprise is now a digital business – or needs to become one fast. The organizations in our ranking are leading the way.”

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual InformationWeek 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of some of the best‐known organizations in the country. Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek 500 spotlights the power of innovation in information technology.
