Overall Satisfaction with InterSystems IRIS

It is used across the whole company.
Servicing subsidiaries in seven countries in Middle / Eastern Europe in their local language even in Cyrillic writing.
It is used for vendor and customer management, order processing, and fulfillment.
This also includes support for all kinds of e-commerce and a Webshop, and more facility support activities.
  • Performance of the DB is just incredible.
  • There are practically no technical limits to development.
  • I never found a situation to say impossible.
  • You need qualified experts to release the full power of this DB.
  • It is not easy to find these experts in the Central European area.
  • You need to accept that you sometimes might need to educate your developers yourself.
They shared a set of limits:
- speed
- exhaustive memory consumption
- limits in individual extensions
- limited flexibility
- license cost

You rather have to take care not to reinvent some wheel just because it is possible.
