InterSystems Included in Prestigious SD Times 100 Ranking for Sixth Consecutive Year

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 17, 2014—InterSystems, a global leader in advanced software technologies for breakthrough applications, today announced it was named one of the software industry’s top 100 innovators by SD Times. This is the sixth consecutive year that SD Times has recognized InterSystems in the annual software industry ranking.

“A number of elements need to react in precise ways for an organization to attain its place atop the charts, each carrying a certain weight. First is innovation. To earn a seat at the (periodic) table, companies must demonstrate that their work advances the state of the art of software development. Hand in hand with that is leadership. Did the company show it was an industry leader through a lion’s share of its market, or by contributing more to an open-source project than anyone else? And finally there is the buzz factor. Was the work widely discussed in the industry? Was the technology considered must-have by those in the know? In short, did the organization have the right chemistry?” the SD Times editors stated in the June 2014 cover story, “The Elements of Success.”

InterSystems received its honor in the “Database and Database Management” category. According to SD Times, “Data is still the most important part of software projects, and managing data structures is just as important. These companies are creating the integrations that best receive and utilize that data.”

“Our vision is to enable breakthrough applications—not just to automate processes, but to enhance dramatically how people work—in industries that have the most demanding performance and scalability requirements like financial services, healthcare and many others,” said Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems Vice President of Strategic Planning. “We appreciate this continuing recognition from the independent perspective of SD Times’ editorial leadership.”
