Hyland Software Makes Implementing Mobile Solutions Easier by Utilizing Windows Azure

CLEVELAND – Oct. 9, 2012 – Hyland Software released its latest deployment innovation, Mobile Broker for Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Azure, to help customers more easily implement mobile solutions. Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform used to build, deploy and manage applications through its global network of datacenters. Hyland’s Mobile Broker for Windows Azure provides customers of its enterprise content management solution, OnBase, with an alternative implementation option for mobile solutions without the upfront investment in hardware.

Mobile Broker for Windows Azure allows customers using a Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, Android or Blackberry to securely connect to OnBase through the Windows Azure platform. This reduces the need for IT departments to manage secure access connections between mobile devices and their corporate networks. For customers with over-burdened IT departments, Mobile Broker for Windows Azure will allow them to swiftly implement their mobile solution without additional IT resources.

“Mobile applications are evolving rapidly and Hyland is simplifying the technical requirements for our customers to securely deploy our mobile solutions,” said Jim Creech, Microsoft alliance manager at Hyland Software. “Hyland is investing in mobile solutions that bring value to our customers. Mobile Broker for Windows Azure makes it easier for IT departments to protect corporate networks, manage mobile applications and empower their mobile workforce.”

“Windows Azure provides a global, scalable cloud platform to help Hyland’s customers implement secure mobile solutions,” said Bill Hamilton, director, Windows Azure product marketing, at Microsoft. “Hyland is making it easier for all of its customers, regardless of their IT sophistication level, to offer mobile access to their users.”

Hyland is a member of the Microsoft Partner Network with an ISV Gold Competency. Since its inception, more than 20 years ago, Hyland has worked closely with Microsoft. OnBase uses numerous Microsoft technologies including .NET, Windows Azure, SQL Database and BizTalk Server and seamlessly integrates with many Microsoft products including Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Outlook.
