Rhapsody is a multi-platform interoperability platform supporting Windows®, Linux, and AIX® operating systems. It is a reliable and robust engine that can be configured for maximum availability. Security is of primary concern, and is built into every part of the product, with a view to safeguarding any protected health information (PHI) that passes through the engine.
Designed for speed, Rhapsody is a scalable platform with the ability to process over 3,500 straight-through messages per second on a standard Intel® server. Rhapsody now processes more than a billion messages per day globally.
Configuring new interfaces can be done quickly with optimized user workflow as well as drag-and-drop capabilities.
Rhapsody has a number of tools and features to make migrating from a legacy integration engine easier. Its Intelligent Mapper reduces the time and cost of migration by performing analysis of legacy engines and reverse engineering of rules, documentation and code generation. Intelligent mapping ensures data quality and cuts the time of traditional migration and conversion, reducing cost and risk while increasing continuity of performance.
