Why migrate from Caché to IRIS

I'm working with clients planning migrate from Caché to IRIS and I want to summary advantages to go to IRIS. I think is:

  1. IntegratedML - AutoML - Agile machine learning
  2. IAM - InterSystems API Manager
  3. Interoperability
  4. Advanced Reports (JReport)
  5. Cloud Manager/Docker and DevOps support
  6. ZPM - Package manager
  7. Native API - Node.js, Python, Java and .NET interoperability
  8. Core based license x user based license
  9. InterSystems Support and new features
  10. Improved management and monitoring features

Can you help me to think or detail these 10 topics?

Hi @Yuri Marx,

and today, you can add to this list : 

  1. Embedded Python
  2. Adaptive Analytics (AtScale)
  3. System Alerting and Monitoring (SAM)
  4. InterSystems Kubernetes Operator (IKO)
  5. SQL improvements on performances and capabilities (Global Iterator,  Columnar Storage, Adaptive Parallel Execution, LOAD DATA, etc.)
  6. Kernel enhancements (Mirroring, etc.)
  7. Security enhancements 
  8. etc. (see release notes)

What about
- enhanced multi model capabilities via native json storage / document database
- in-memory bi-directional java and .net gateway (and python but have embedded python since then)
- AWS Cloud connectors
- REST enhancements (API publishing via swagger, spec first development from OpenAPI 2 spec)

Also, more generally, IRIS is the successor of Ensemble + iknow + DeepSee, rather than just Caché
