2 new reasons ShareBase by Hyland is a LEADING choice

Even though there are still two months left in the year, Hyland has already had a pretty exciting final half of 2017. With our constant focus on innovation and partnership with our customers, it is no surprise that we are consistently identified as a leader in enterprise technology and business solutions – across industries and around the globe.

2017 was no exception, with both Gartner and Ovum naming Hyland a leader in two major reports. Although ShareBase, our secure file sharing and collaboration product, is our most recent innovation, we are no newbie to business content solutions or cloud technology.

We’re proud of our status on the reports. Here are some of the details.

2 big wins

1. Hyland named a leader in content services platforms by Gartner

For more than 25 years now, Hyland has been creating and providing business technology solutions, focused from the beginning on the content that is so critical to any business of any size in any industry. And for seven years running, Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) named us as a leader for our ever-evolving enterprise information platform, OnBase.

Then, as business needs started to change, we realized that our customers’ needs were starting to fall outside the traditional walls of internal ECM. The definition of the traditional ECM user had changed. Not only were an organization’s employees needing to collaborate on content, but a government agency’s constituents, a university’s students, an insurance company’s members, and a hospital’s patients all were looking to interact with the content stored at those organizations or in the cloud.

So we created a new product, ShareBase, to offer organizations a completely cloud-based, secure, simple-to-use product to improve collaboration across teams, departments and even with those outside their organizations. We built ShareBase to be powerful alone and/or extend the power of OnBase as an additional content service.

As we saw the market change, Gartner did too – coining the term ‘content services platforms’—and lo and behold, here we are again. Gartner has released their Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms and Hyland is celebrating another year in the leader quadrant, with ShareBase earning a mention as part of Hyland’s strong portfolio.

2. Hyland named a leader for cloud enterprise content management by Ovum

For more than 14 years, we’ve offered the Hyland Cloud, built specifically to host business content solutions. With more than 700 customers currently using OnBase hosted in the Hyland Cloud, and a dedicated Hyland team of experts devoted to managing the Hyland Cloud, we’ve been recognized as a leader in cloud content solutions by OVUM in their Ovum Decision Matrix: ECM in the Cloud, 2017-18 report.

Extending our expertise gained over the years in business content, enterprise technology and cloud solutions, we built ShareBase, a ‘born in the cloud’ product we launched early last year. Whether on a phone, a tablet, on the go or in the office, we understand the growing needs of businesses to facilitate simple but secure content sharing and collaboration, as well as the need to reduce the burden on IT for hosting and maintaining these solutions. As organizations focus heavily on customer experience, this ability to share and interact securely with previously internal-only siloed content by their customers is another means to enhance the relationship with those customers.

With ShareBase, we are able to answer that call and we are excited to see where our continued innovation and close partnerships with businesses and customers around the world takes us.
