1 CEO view from the top, 3 ways to optimize your enterprise

Bill_Priemer HeadshotThe information management space is a tremendously exciting place to be. What have been distinct software markets for years are rapidly merging. The worlds of enterprise content management (ECM), business process management (BPM), file sync and share, capture and case management are overlapping through both innovation and acquisition. Add to these the game-changing capabilities of cloud and mobile, and it’s clear that we have entered a new age of enterprise information management.

While a time of growth and opportunity for the industry, it can be overwhelming for organizations looking to evolve their IT strategies. Where should they focus their attention to make the biggest impact? Will software purchased today continue to be relevant in the years ahead? How can they respond to immediate needs while keeping a long-term view?

The most forward-thinking IT strategists I know are thinking holistically about their approach to managing information, not just in one business area but across the enterprise.

One platform, unlimited potential

OnBase by Hyland empowers organizations to take a holistic approach to information management. While OnBase has long been viewed as ECM—and we are proud of that heritage—that label alone no longer encompasses the breadth and depth of the product or the solutions currently being implemented.

Today, for thousands of organizations worldwide, OnBase is a single enterprise information platform for managing content, processes and cases.

We believe a “one platform” approach can fundamentally transform how organizations work by providing:

  1. Multiple capabilities on one platform
    OnBase provides ECM, BPM, case management and capture capabilities on one highly configurable platform. By combining the ability to manage content, processes and cases, OnBase equips organizations to rapidly create and adjust content-enabled business applications enterprise-wide.
  2. Many unique solutions on one platform
    When I reflect on the sheer diversity of industries, departments and people who rely on OnBase, I’m proud and, frankly, a little amazed. All our customers utilize the same set of core capabilities and yet have solutions tailored to their exact requirements. Thousands of customers have owned OnBase for more than a decade, initially focusing on improving one business area and then expanding the platform across their enterprise.
  3. Core strengths of one platform
    Every solution built on OnBase benefits from core strengths native to the platform. Any OnBase solution can be deployed in the cloud, extended to mobile devices and cleanly integrated with other core applications. And in a world of heightened security risk, every solution is protected by enterprise-class security protocols and encryption technologies.

Customers who use OnBase as an integral part of their IT strategy tell me that OnBase has helped to transform their organizations by empowering them to become more agile, efficient and effective. I don’t know of a single organization that couldn’t use more of that!
