CACHÉ to reduce hardware footprint, improve cost effectiveness and maximise ROI

Eton, UK—August 12, 2003—Leading post-relational database provider, InterSystems has announced that Telecom Support Solutions (TSS) has become the latest company to join its application partner programme. TSS is using InterSystems’ CACHÉ database to help develop next generation software solutions and reduce time-to-market for its extensive customer base across the telecoms sector.

TSS, which supplies support, design and development services to leading telecoms equipment providers, initially employed the CACHÉ solution as the foundation for a traffic reporting and system optimisation solution for telecoms switches. It is now using it for a number of other telecoms applications including a fault reporting system.

“We have used several database solutions in the past but none has matched CACHÉ’s outstanding performance and reliability levels,” said Russ Amer, joint managing director, TSS. “A key benefit is CACHÉ’s Rapid Application Development (RAD) environment which enables us to get solutions to the prototype stage and, ultimately, to market more quickly.”

“Because the CACHÉ database is so compact, it allows us to run applications on much smaller processors than would otherwise be possible,” continues Amer. “As a result, we can reduce the hardware footprint, ensure solutions are cost-effective and maximise return on investment.”

“We were also impressed by InterSystems’ business approach. It took the time and effort to understand the way we work and customised its service, support and training offerings accordingly.”

InterSystems sales manager, Chris Norton, says. “We always look to partner with companies who share our pioneering approach to technology. We see the potential in TSS’s objective of delivering innovative services to drive the next generation of telcos and look forward to building a strong and lasting business relationship.”
