Hello everybody! We’re happy to announce a new way to download Community Edition kits of InterSystems IRIS and IRIS for Health. The Community Edition is a no-cost developer edition that makes it easy to start developing solutions with IRIS. You can now download these kits through the Evaluation service: evaluation.intersystems.com.
The Atelier 1.2 stable release update site (https://atelier.artifactoryonline.com/atelier/updates/stable/1.2/) has been updated to 1.2.119. This build contains all of the new features and enhancements the 1.2.118 beta build has as well as a number of bug fixes. Additionally, we have documented a list of the top time-saving keyboard shortcuts to help you become more productive. Give Atelier 1.2 a try and let us know what you think! Some of the key highlights include:
Starting with the Field Test of 2017.1 InterSystems products will include Feature Tracker. It is enabled by default during the Field Test and is explained more fully in the product documentation included below. Information collected by Feature Tracker is limited to technology usage information and instance identification. This tool has been carefully crafted to not transmit sensitive information related to customer applications or data.
For many in today's interoperability landscape, REST reigns supreme. With the overabundance of tools and approaches to REST API development, what tools do you choose and what do you need to plan for before writing any code?
We're pleased to invite all DC members to the InterSystems Global Masters Gamification Platform to get points and prizes for your contribution to the Community, learn with selected content about InterSystems technology, network with your peers and have fun!
▶️ What is Global Masters?
Global Masters is a gamification platform, where you learn technology, complete tech quizzes, watch videos, etc. You will be completing challenges (tasks) related to ISC technology, earning badges & points, and exchanging points for a variety of rewards.
I’m pleased to announce the 0.9 release of the ObjectScript extension for Visual Studio Code. Earlier this year I announced that InterSystems would be joining the community in evolving this already popular tool. Since then, we have been hard at work solidifying the code base and building a slew of new features.
I'm pleased to announce a milestone in the lifecycle of the ObjectScript package manager, ZPM. The package manager has offered developers the ability to neatly package up ObjectScript code and deployment configuration settings and version information in a convenient way. Over the last few years, it has evolved greatly into an integral part of many development workflows.
Preview releases are now available for the first version (v1.0) of InterSystems System Alerting and Monitoring (InterSystems SAM for short).
InterSystems SAM v1.0 provides a modern monitoring solution for InterSystems IRIS-based products. It allows high-level views of clusters and single-node drilled down metrics-visualization together with alerts notifications. This first version provides visualization for more than one hundred InterSystems IRIS kernel metrics, and users can extend the default-supplied Grafana template to their liking.
V1.0 is meant to be a simple and intuitive baseline. Please help us make it great by trying it and sending us feedback!
SAM can display information from InterSystems-based instance starting with version 2019.4
SAM is only available in container format. You will need the SAM Manager container plus a small set of additional open-source components (Prometheus and Grafana) that are added automatically by the composition file.
SAM components and the SAM Manager Community Edition are available from
At least three different ways to process errors (status codes, exceptions, SQLCODE etc is given in ObjectScript. Most systems have status, but for a range of reasons exceptions are more convenient to manage. You spend some time translating between the various techniques dealing with legacy code. For reference, I use several of these excerpts. It is hoped that they will also support others.
At the George James Software booth at Global Summit last year we took the wraps off the work we've been doing to make our popular editing and debugging tool Serenji available on the Visual Studio Code platform.
Rather than requiring you to pull code from your namespaces into local files, then push the changes back to the namespace to run it, you work directly in the namespace. In other words, the editing experience is like Studio rather than like Atelier.
As well as editing code you can also debug it directly from VSCode.
Just wanted to let you know there's still time to get a $25 dollar gift card from Gartner for reviewing our products. Reviews must be objective (no InterSystems employees) and approved by Gartner. Here is the link: https://gtnr.it/3ulVX4K
TRIADB is an emerging unique and valuable technology in NoSQL database modelling and BI analytics. The following video is from a presentation and demonstration of TRIADB prototype implemented on top of Intersystems Cache database and driven with a CLI in Python (Jupyter-Pandas). In fact this is the second time in the past year that a prototype based on this technology is implemented and demonstrated. The first one was built on top of OrientDB multi-model database and driven by a Mathematica notebook.
Hundreds of users at TrakCare and HealthShare sites around the world rely on the InterSystems CCR Application (Change Control Record) to track their changes and deploy their configuration. InterSystems is excited to announce that following the launch of the Angular-based Documentation and FAQs this summer, the CCR application is now ready to accept beta testers to try out further expansion of the Angular UIs.
Users at CCR-controlled sites who wish to participate in the beta testing of the new UI can "opt-in" using the following steps:
FemTech (software for women’s health) is an integral part of modern healthcare delivery that individualizes care and encourages patient empowerment. The women’s digital health market is projected to continue to grow as we prioritize and de-stigmatize women’s health issues.
In this webinar, we'll show you some of the general principles and problems of solving issues connected to women's health, as well as share some great ideas for your inspiration. As always, we’ll discuss and answer the questions on how to build solutions using InterSystems IRIS for Health.
