It is used as the premier database tool for handling the ETL of medical information and CSP interaction. Across the whole organization it is used, however the Integration team interacts with it directly. The business problem it addresses is the need to handle all of the specialized medical standards of data ETL in one ecosystem. The scalability needs of our growing services require the central technology to simply work with everything, and the Intersystems family of services, including Cache, provides this.
- It's an object oriented database with relational access, making the vast volume of data ETL fast and as efficient as we are able to make it.
- Easy to install and doesn't take a lot of time to get a test environment running.
- CSP is a fascinating web development technology that easily connects a user application to the Cache handled data.
- The great functionality hides behind an old UI that can be cumbersome to navigate, making Cache configurations take more time.
- The easy installs of Cache need specific setups to work well, and if yours is unique or if your servers are highly specialized on a networking level in terms of ports, VMs, or otherwise, then there may be some difficulties getting things to work.

It's definitely great for medical industries that need the vast amounts of features/security/performance, however if you need something simple then this would be too much. There is a learning curve, and if you come from more common database technologies, then there will be a lot of differences to handle. Simple database needs would be better fulfilled elsewhere, but Cache is for when you need to take the next step, whether that be in the volume, complexity, or security of ETL.

If you need to use a DB that will run on several OS, if you're looking for a DB that enables you a rapid development, if you're looking for a non relational DB, if you're looking for a DB that can easily communicate with other systems (intranet or internet), if you're looking for a DB that supply you all the tools you need to start coding and admin it, if you're looking for a fast DB, and for many other reasons - InterSystems Cache is your DB.

If you like to have more control over your data, you can use InterSystems Caché. With this database, you will have SQL, Objects and direct access to the data at the same time, and you can choose the way which you need. And you can use internal language (CacheObjectScript) to access this external data or any kind of supported external languages.
