April 24, 2008 - InterSystems is working with The Institute of Cancer Research, one of the world’s leading cancer research organizations, to streamline its administrative processes and increase data consistency and accuracy.


The Institute chose The InterSystems Ensemble integration platform to integrate and simplify internal administration associated with registering new starters and updating information on current employees.


The Institute of Cancer Research has continuous staff turnaround as research staff join The Institute for specific projects and short-to-medium time periods. As a result, the administration associated with registering and updating individual employee human resource profiles, finance records, email accounts, IT support and more was onerous. Due to the specialist nature of The Institute, different processes were provided by different systems, and all information was entered separately and updated manually, creating the need to frequently review and verify data for consistency.


With InterSystems Ensemble, The Institute can integrate facilities, financial, IT support, email and human resources systems. Information on every employee can be shared among various applications, and any update will be automatically reflected to make sure all data is consistent and accurate.


“We chose InterSystems Ensemble because of its very extensive and mature systems integration and application development capabilities,” said Jeremy Harrington, IT Director at The Institute of Cancer Research. “Not only did it meet our basic needs for data integration and account provisioning, but the product also has a fully featured object-oriented database, workflow and business process management functionality. In addition, Ensemble is a highly functional platform for management of all aspects of application development.”
