Our software makes it easier for your company to improve operations while reducing its environmental impact.


The core of all our products – InterSystems IRIS data platform – is so efficient it allows our customers to accomplish much more, using a fraction of the computer hardware and energy than before.

A 900% improvement in performance using only 30% of the infrastructure at Broadridge Financial Solutions through use of InterSystems IRIS, compared to an alternative approach.

As a complete, cloud-first data platform, InterSystems IRIS eliminates the need to implement and integrate multiple technologies, resulting in less code, using fewer system resources, and requiring less maintenance.

Our technical advisors work with our customers to design the most efficient architectures for compute, storage, communications, power, and environment management, with automated and remote management options.
