A Platform and Partner for the Future
With more than two decades of experience in delivering top-tier ERP software applications, NexJen Systems wants to take advantage of new Web and object technologies in a more powerful ERP offering. "We just didn't feel comfortable with our legacy software vendor," said Chuck Ruban, President of NexJen Systems. "They weren't working on any new product development that was of interest to our company, so we were on the lookout for a new partner."
The advanced MultiValue features built into CACHÉ made it easy for software specialists at NexJen Systems to leverage their knowledge while moving to an object platform that Ruban considers optimal or new development. "We love the powerful object technology that CACHÉ provides," he said. "In addition, CACHÉ supports relational and direct multidimensional access to data. As a result, evelopers can work in whichever data access model is most appropriate for achieving their bjectives." The ability to scale across the enterprise and deliver extremely high performance was lso a driver behind the move to CACHÉ , according to Ruban. "We're currently expecting a erformance increase of more than 30 percent with CACHÉ ," he noted.
Complementing these technology benefits, CACHÉ provides automated database resizing and a high level of database resiliency. "In effect, this is a self-maintaining database. And, that's important for our customers, many of whom do not wish to invest in an onsite, full-time database administrator," Ruban said.
"Perhaps most important, we really feel comfortable with InterSystems ," Ruban continued. "Their commitment to ongoing RD and to the MultiValue community means that we won't be left without platform support and new innovation."
"NexJen Systems typifies the growing number of application partners with whom we're partnering as they deliver new application products to a global user base," said Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems Vice President of Strategic Planning. "We appreciate the opportunity to provide these companies with the innovative technology and attention they need for continued competitive success."
