BPM in the Real World Reports

Product Quicktake: InterSystems Ensemble

Almost every company has been stretching to do more with less -- to modernize legacy applications, to rapidly develop functionality to extend existing aplications or meet new business demands, and to integrate disparate applications and data into a cohesive platform that meets dynamic business requirements. Unfortunately, individual technical answers to these problems result in piecemeal solutions that are inflexible and difficult to maintain, while solutions based on traditional broad-based integration platforms are often complex, expensive to develop, and require months if not years to complete. What organizations need is a way to rapidly develop composite applications that integrate new business functionality with existing application logic or data.Ensemble, by InterSystems Corporation, is a comprehensive integration platform designed to meet this need.
