Market Focus on Financial Services, Insurance, Healthcare

Cambridge, MA—January 14, 2002—InterSystems Corporation today announced that MySkyWeb Inc. has chosen CACHÉ as the database software for its Mobile Enterprise Server (MES) wireless solution.

A technology leader in the embedded database sector, InterSystems develops and markets the high performance CACHÉ database. MySkyWeb provides innovative wireless communications infrastructure software for web-based applications and content.

The integrated wireless solution combines MES, providing middleware functionality, and CACHÉ, a multidimensional database that delivers top-tier performance and massive scalability, on the back end. The products seamlessly integrate to provide easy, wireless information access in a variety of scenarios. For example, users might access data through a website, store the data at the site in the CACHÉ database, then retrieve it at their convenience for later use on a laptop or desktop system.

“MES is a highly scalable, off-the-shelf solution that fits any customer application,” says Bob Reiber, senior vice president of engineering and operations at MySkyWeb. “We chose CACHÉ because it is optimized to deliver the exceptional performance required in the enterprise environment.”

MySkyWeb’s market focus for MES fits well with InterSystems’ strategy, according to Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems’ vice president of strategic planning. “The ability of MES to securely deliver wireless access to enterprise data and applications in real time makes it a natural fit for the growing healthcare, financial and insurance markets, which are key targets for InterSystems. The explosive growth in the wireless user-base demands high performance and a scalable infrastructure throughout the delivery chain.”
