CeBIT 2002: InterSystems at Stand D43 in Hall 3 and in the Electronic Network and Application Center (ENAC) for Communities, the State and the Economy in Hall 11, Pavilion A

Darmstadt, Germany—January 22, 2002— At CeBIT 2002, everything at InterSystems at stand D43 in hall 3 revolves around the question “Does your database match your development?” In this way the company demonstrates how the impedance mismatch between object-oriented application development and relational database technology can be bridged by using CACHÉ 4, without resorting to mapping or middleware. Practical evidence of the advantages of the post-relational e-DBMS is being supplied by application and consulting partners with their CACHÉ-based applications.

In recent years, object programming languages have established themselves as the leading technology in application development. On the other hand, company data around the world is for the most part still stored in relational databases. Efforts to map this relational data onto a useable object format, however, frequently have an adverse impact not only on the productivity of programmers but also on the performance of applications. By contrast, the Unified Data Architecture (UDA) developed by InterSystems makes a uniform descriptive language and architecture available for both relational tables and objects. As a result, objects created with CACHÉ support all popular OO programming languages, such as Java, C++, and ActiveX. At the same time, the transactional multidimensional data model of CACHÉ makes it possible to directly access all data by means of SQL, ODBC, and JDBC.

At a new location and with a new booth concept, at CeBIT InterSystems provides insights into the post-relational technology of CACHÉ and the capabilities of the current version, CACHÉ 4.1, which has been optimized to provide high availability for large systems and large amounts of data. An additional theme is the company’s new partner program, which is being officially introduced at the show.

A variety of application and consulting partners are demonstrating the qualities of CACHÉ using concrete application examples and are reporting on their development experiences with the post-relational e-DBMS. Represented at the booth are:

  • The Australian application partner TrakHealth, which is introducing its hospital and laboratory information systems MedTrak and LabTrak to the German market at CeBIT.
  • The application partner Lib-IT, with LIBERO and NetVue, a new kind of software for image reproduction in online catalogues for libraries.
  • The application partner Intraprend, with new functions for the Internet-based inventory management and production planning system WWS/PPS Manager.
  • The application partner Siteforum Europe, with its portal management suite Siteforum Interactive Business Portals. The new version introduced at CeBIT supports CACHÉ as its high-performance database platform.
  • The consulting partner Synerva, with a variety of CACHÉ projects – including a Java application that uses CACHÉ for the persistent storage of its object data model.

In addition to stand D43 in hall 3, InterSystems is also represented at this year’s CeBIT for the first time in the Electronic Network and Application Center (ENAC) for communities, the state and the economy. Together with its new strategic partner RWE Systems Applications GmbH, the company is presenting CACHÉ-based solutions for the public sector in pavilion A in hall 11.
