CAMBRIDGE, Mass.-October 23, 3019 - InterSystems, a global leader in information technology platforms for health, business, and government applications, today announced that Forrester has recognized the  InterSystems IRIS Data Platform™ as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Translytical Data Platforms, Q4 2019. Forrester evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of the top 14 translytical data platform vendors across 24 criteria, specifically looking at each company’s current offering, strategy, and market presence.

Forrester defines a translytical data platform as “a unified database that supports transactional, operational, analytical, and streaming workloads in real time, ensuring data consistency, transactional integrity, and analytical accuracy with extreme performance and scale achieved through modern memory architectures.”

InterSystems IRIS, the data engine behind the world’s most important applications, earned the highest scores possible in the report in the data security, data pipeline, data access, extensibility, performance, high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR), customer support, partners, customer adoption and evaluated product revenue criteria. Looking at data security in particular, Forrester states that “customers who have top data security requirements will find InterSystems to be among the best from a data security standpoint.”

According to Forrester, InterSystems IRIS “capably emerged from the requirements of some of the most demanding organizations including healthcare, high finance, and scientific use cases.” What’s more, the report also noted that “InterSystems’ crackerjack translytical solution turns new heads.”
