Cambridge, Mass.—July 19, 2004— InterSystems Corporation today extended its commitment to world-class application integration with sponsorship of the Integration Consortium.

A non-profit global advocacy group, the Integration Consortium focuses on the quest for measurable business value by bringing together industry knowledge through experience and interaction and by providing a venue to develop, create and debate.

InterSystems develops and markets Ensemble, the only integration platform to incorporate the functionality of an integration server, application server, high performance object database and a unified development and management environment in a single, architecturally consistent product. Even before we launched our Ensemble rapid universal integration platform, InterSystems was aware of the contributions to the integration sector that the Integration Consortium has made by providing a common forum for application integration vendors, corporate users, system integrators and individuals. The result of this interaction is a powerful synergy that benefits everyone involved in integration technology,says InterSystems Managing Director, Application Integration Trevor Matz. We fully support the Integration Consortiums objectives and are committed to actively working with the organization and its worldwide membership.

InterSystems is recognized for its innovation and technology leadership throughout the IT industry,says Integration Consortium Chairman Michael Kuhbock. We are extremely pleased by their support of the Integration Consortium and welcome their ongoing contributions to the organization.
