InterSystems, a creative data technology provider dedicated to helping customers solve the most critical scalability, interoperability and speed problems, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner in the Challengers quadrant of the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems. 

InterSystems IRIS is a complete, cloud-first data platform which provides high performance database management, interoperability and analytics capabilities, all built-in from the ground up.

InterSystems IRIS exceeds requirements for multicloud, intercloud and hybrid deployment, high-speed processing and ingest, and distributed data access. InterSystems IRIS is available on all major public cloud marketplaces, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and private cloud, and has been deployed across the globe.

The InterSystems IRIS position recognises the solution’s support for advanced analytics due to its strength in embedded analytics, ML and AI. InterSystems IRIS Adaptive Analytics capabilities provide business users with superior ease of use and self-service analytics capabilities to visualise, analyse and interrogate live data from multiple sources in a consistent format.

“One of the biggest IT challenges facing businesses today is integrating their data from across multiple systems and silos and turning it into actionable insights,” said Scott Gnau, InterSystems Head of Data Platforms. “We feel our position in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant recognises our ability to help organisations overcome those difficulties with advanced technologies that enable them to access, transform and harmonise data from multiple sources and makes it faster and easier for them to gain new insights.”

“Over the last year, we have continued to innovate and invest in our InterSystems IRIS data platform, extending our performance, scalability, analytics and multicloud support. With the addition of frictionless and native Python support, we now support millions of Python developers and hundreds of thousands of existing Python libraries. We will continue to invest in innovation and deliver the benefits of that back to our customers and partners, ensuring they have the capabilities required to enable an agile and resilient organisation.”
