InterSystems Ensemble is not quite like any other product in the market. It is perhaps best described as an integration platform although this does not do it justice. Indeed, as there is no well-understood software category that encompasses the sorts of capabilities offered by Ensemble, we need to spell out its major characteristics, which are that it is a messaging platform with an underlying database and development environment, plus a workflow engine. Together these provide not just application integration but also business process orchestration and optimisation. In addition, Ensemble includes Advanced Analytics that provide relevant functions against both structured and unstructured data. While these require a separate license they are included as a part of the Ensemble install. As we said, there is no other product quite like Ensemble: it enables integration in the very broadest sense of that word.
