Global Summit 2018 Highlights

Hi, Community!

Just came back from Global Summit 2018 and want to share my impressions.

Key highlights of my choice:

1. The announcement of a new InterSystem Data Platform: InterSystems IRIS for Health!

2. Community and Express licensing for InterSystems IRIS 

3. The Launch of InterSystems Open Exchange - the gallery of InterSystems Solutions, Tools, Technology examples, Adapters, and Interfaces! E.g. test coverage tool and Ethereum Blockchain Adapter

We had more than 1,000 participants from dozens of countries. 77 sessions on different topics, but mostly focused on AI, Interoperability, Cloud (docker, containers) and FHIR.

Also, there were some announcements from partners, e.g. new product Channels from Ready Computing and new Visual Studio Code plugin with debugger from George James.


All the rest photos see on DC Twitter and we have two YouTube live streams: one, two (with very low quality though).

Hi Evgeny,

Community and Express licensing for InterSystems IRIS sounds very interesting. Do you have any more information on this?


Community license is a free license for a limited configuration - up to 8 cores.

Express license is a cloud server license without configuration limitations (but maybe with some other usage limitations, will be announced later) for a fix price of $200 per month or $2,000 per year.

But let's wait for an official announcement and availability in November.

Just a quick question...

May I use "Community license" for learning? I mean, If I want to improve in IRIS or other Intersystems product, can I use this licence even I haven't a final developer licence?

You can use the community license for what ever you want. There are limitations on configuration.  Once you exceed the capabilities enabled by this license you would need to move up to some kind of paid license.   Using it for learning the product should not come close to the limit however. 

Have fun!!
