Unleash the Full Power of Analytics
InterSystems IRIS acts as an open analytics platform, enabling you to combine your favorite tools and technologies for data exploration, business intelligence, and prediction in efficient analytics workflows. With our active analytics capabilities, you gain insights at the point of action so that you can make better, more timely decisions.
Embedded Analytics and Text Exploration
InterSystems IRIS includes powerful analytics technology for data exploration and business intelligence. High-performance, interactive dashboards can be embedded in transactional applications to give users insights at the point of action.
Unique technology for text exploration enables you to gain insight from unstructured data and use it to enrich your solutions. Our text exploration technology is different because it uses a “bottom up” approach, discovering concepts and relations within the text itself. There is no need for the tedious – and limiting – process of predefining dictionaries or ontologies.
Open, Standards-Based Connectivity
In addition to our embedded analytics capabilities, InterSystems IRIS can connect to and leverage best-of-breed tools and analytics standards, including:
- Apache Spark
Apache Spark is an open-source, cluster-computing framework that is becoming a market leader for data processing and analytics tasks, including predictive analytics and machine learning. InterSystems IRIS has a connector for Apache Spark, enabling you to leverage the performance and horizontal scalability of the InterSystems IRIS Data Platform when working with Spark.
Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) is the standard used by many popular machine learning and analytics tools for describing predictive models. InterSystems IRIS can automatically generate optimized native code based on PMML model definitions.
Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) is a framework for Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. InterSystems IRIS’ text exploration technology is compatible with UIMA, thereby enabling any UIMA-compatible NLP tool to be used as part of your data workflows.
Leveraging an Open Analytics Platform
Native analytics technologies and open, standards-based connectivity (for Spark, PMML, UIMA, and 3rd party tools) makes InterSystems IRIS an open analytics platform.
