Designed for any user who needs access to their SQL projections in InterSystems Caché, InterSystems DeepSee, InterSystems IRIS, InterSystems IRIS for Health and InterSystems IRIS BI databases. VDM features a drag and a drop query builder, interactive data grids, charting, gauges, data visualizations, banded report writer, report scheduling and batching, as well as web reporting capabilities.

VDM leverages the Managed Provider for .Net to communicate with InterSystems databases, and no ODBC drivers are needed to access the SQL projections for InterSystems Caché, InterSystems IRIS and InterSystems IRIS for Health. VDM accesses DeepSee.RESTClient.cls for building MDX queries and communication with InterSystems DeepSee and InterSystems IRIS BI.

v10 features a new Report Scheduler and Automation process that has an Outlook inspired look and feel. We've also introduced a new feature called Insights, a report repository and data warehouse that is powered by the Scheduler.


While VDM is not a SQL syntax editor, the graphical query builder can be bypassed and SQL scripts can be pasted directly into the Advanced Query form for execution against your InterSystems database.

The InterSystems DeepSee and InterSystems IRIS BI features are currently EAP.
