Cambridge, Mass.—September 10, 2007— InterSystems Corporation today announced it has been awarded a contract that specifies InterSystems as an approved integration platform vendor for government agencies and public education entities throughout the State of Texas. The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) master contract #DIR-SDD-557 covers a three-year period and includes an optional two-year extension.
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 regional and national electronic health records.

Ensemble is positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Composite-Application Projects, 2Q071.
“InterSystems has a proven track record of success in delivering integration technology to government organizations worldwide,” said Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems Vice President of Strategic Planning. “This contract award will make it easy for agencies, academic institutions, and hospital districts throughout the State of Texas to utilize Ensemble to integrate current applications as well as to build new composite applications that leverage their core systems,” he said.
The contract enables more than 225 state agencies and hundreds of public educational and healthcare institutions to generate a purchase order under the DIR master contract number. “All negotiations have been finalized and the software pricing is already set in the contract,” Grabscheid noted. “Since everything has already received a sign-off by the Texas DIR, the purchase process for each state organization has essentially been reduced to one easy step.”
