Zen is a component based and object-oriented Web application framework. With Zen you can rapidly develop data intensive web applications with rich and highly interactive user interfaces. Here are some of Zen's main benefits:
Zen does not replace or deprecate Caché Server Pages (CSP)—InterSystems tag based Web application framework. In fact, Zen is built on top of CSP.

Caché now also includes Zen Mojo, a technology for building "state of the art" web applications for use in mobile as well as desktop environments. For more information on Zen Mojo, please read Using Zen Mojo.
