Overall Satisfaction with InterSystems IRIS

We use InterSystems IRIS throughout the company. It assists us in migrating legacy code, solving customer problems through systems development, and creating APIs in a simple and fast way.
  • The support provided by InterSystems was great when I needed to ask some questions about the characteristics of IRIS.
  • It provides several tools that enable the development of BI and API's applications according to the customers' needs.
  • Docker support.
  • The database is robust and offers excellent performance even with a large amount of information.
  • The usability of the administration portal could be better.
  • InterSystems' technology is still not very common, so it is difficult to recruit experienced professionals.
  • I believe that the main impact is to be able to meet customer needs. On that point, InterSystems IRIS provided subsidies to make this possible.
With the exception of the administration portal that is used most frequently by the database administrator, all other tools have excellent usability.
The support is excellent, with attentive professionals who assist in solving all types of problems. The community, despite being small, is very active and also contributes to eventual doubts.

It is recommended for the development of complex applications, as it offers everything needed to build a stable and robust product. In addition, it has tools such as Docker and allows the creation of APIs, which will meet market demands. In a scenario where the development team has no experience with InterSystems technology, the learning curve can be steeper than when using other tools. However, the benefits end up paying off.
