Vayusphere Instant Response (IRiS) is a platform for creating real-time applications. IRiS converts an existing IM client into a real-time dashboard for querying any enterprise application. It routes actionable notifications and alerts from work-flow enabled applications to users immediately available to respond. It then closes the loop by capturing responses from any instant messaging enabled device
Vayusphere Instant Response software and solutions enable companies to leverage and extend their current and future investments in Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and corporate Instant Messaging (IM).
