Hyland Software Named a Leader in Leading Analyst Firm Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, 2010

CLEVELAND – Nov. 19, 2010 – Stay disciplined and focus on what you do best. Through its 20-year history, that’s been Hyland’s mantra. And in Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management*, 2010, it paid off – Hyland Software has been recognized as a “Leader.”

“To us, product vision isn’t only about what you choose to do. It’s just as much about what you choose not to do,” said A.J. Hyland, president and CEO of Hyland Software. “This approach defines Hyland as a new kind of leader in the market. Because of it, we’re uniquely equipped to deliver value to our customers through relevant, enterprise-class solutions. And now, this recognition affirms that this kind of focus is part of what makes a respected and established market leader.”

Hyland maintains clear direction and continues to provide value to the market. Through a never-broken chain of product support and continuous, customer-driven product innovation, Hyland delivers on its culture of “customer first.” The foundation of its product, OnBase, centers on automating business processes that depend on documents, content and people to operate more effectively. By focusing on these specific ECM capabilities, Hyland is different than other vendors who try to be all ECM things to all people.

In the ECM market, Hyland differentiates itself by:

Offering both on-premise and proven software as a service (SaaS) solutions. Compared to 2009, Hyland’s total SaaS and hosted revenue is projected to grow 288 percent. These solutions are currently offered across five continents.

Creating products that scale upward and downward in scope, performance and sophistication. The OnBase solution is used successfully in both small organizations, like home healthcare facilities, as well as multinational, disparate healthcare systems.

Building a solution designed to be completely configurable. OnBase continues to deliver more out-of-the-box functionality, requiring less customization and cost, than is typically found with other ECM technologies.

Delivering an enterprise approach with a solution that can be deployed one department at a time. The result is that customers receive a vision for growth through a low risk strategy, proving value and return on the investment.

“We feel that being recognized as a leader in our market affirms that we’ve met the needs of today’s organizations. It also signifies that there are new challenges ahead for us. The market is changing, and we are prepared to address these new demands while staying true to our core values and responsibility to our customers,” said Hyland.
