InterSystems IRIS  data platform is used in thousands of production implementations in virtually every industry in more than 80 countries around the world. Common use cases include:

Concurrent Transactions and Analytics

InterSystems IRIS is optimized for ingesting data while executing concurrent analytic workloads on the incoming data, at scale, with very high performance for both workload types, with high resource efficiency and low total cost of ownership.

Rapid Data Ingestion

Many use cases in manufacturing, IoT, utilities, smart cities, and financial services require the ability to ingest data at very high data rates over MQTT, Apache Kafka, FIX, and other protocols. These are common use cases for InterSystems IRIS.

High Performance Distributed SQL

InterSystems IRIS is used in applications that require executing complex SQL queries on very large distributed data sets with high performance and reliability, and low TCO. InterSystems IRIS excels at executing unplanned, ad hoc queries on data that has not been co-sharded or aggregated.

Edge Database

The lightweight footprint of InterSystems IRIS allows it to be deployed on the Edge or in “Fog” environments, for example to collect sensor data and push it to the cloud asynchronously. This is a common use case for IoT projects in many industries.

Data Fabric

The unique distributed architecture of InterSystems IRIS provides secure access to any enterprise data for use in real-time processes, analytics, and reporting, without requiring any additional infrastructure tiers. This makes it ideal for enterprise data fabric use cases.

Interoperability with Real-Time Analytics

InterSystems IRIS is used for a variety of digital transformation use cases that bridge data and application silos and embed real-time data-driven analytics into processes, that are exposed for internal and public access through full-lifecycle API management capabilities.
