Hyland Software Named a Leader in Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, 2011

CLEVELAND – October 20, 2011 – A competitive organization is a productive – and selective – one. It’s why more organizations are using their finite technology budgets to choose the right enterprise content management (ECM) solution. In fact, ECM grew “by 7.6 percent in 2010,” even in a down economy, according to this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for ECM*, 2011. In part because of its own growth – 27 percent in 2010 – Hyland Software was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for ECM*, 2011.

“ECM is growing for a reason – it’s very relevant to helping today’s organizations meet their productivity goals. But we believe the most effective ECM solutions are more than just relevant. They promote the meaningful use of content throughout an organization, and do so with a balance of focus and flexibility,” said A.J. Hyland, president and CEO for Hyland Software. “This is what we center our business on, giving Hyland the opportunity to offer a better quality solution, grow faster than the competition, and above all else, better serve our customers.”

Hyland focuses on delivering an ECM solution in OnBase that automates business processes that depend on documents, content and people to operate more effectively. For Hyland, this type of ECM is the driving force behind the growth of the market.

Hyland believes this segment of ECM has evolved to focus on how, when and where organizations use content. Hyland has become a leader in these areas through its:

“Strength in integration with other core players, such as Epic in the healthcare arena”
Offline client that allows organizations to fully leverage OnBase without Internet connectivity
OnBase Mobile solutions, developed natively on all major mobile operating systems, to keep people involved in business processes wherever they are
“There is more opportunity than ever for organizations to become more competitive using ECM technology. But we believe that the technology is only as effective as it is flexible,” said Hyland. “It’s why we put a nimble solution into the hands of our customers, one that provides the option to deploy on-premise or via the cloud, the configurability to enable business users to change the solution to meet their needs, and the foundation to scale from department to the enterprise.

“It’s with this agile mindset that we believe we have become a leader, and with this mindset we will continue to push ourselves, the ECM market and our customers forward to success.”
