#OTTC14: Find out first at OTTC: OnBase 14 debuts!


An exciting aspect to this year’s OnBase Training & Technology Conference (OTTC) is that we released the best version of our enterprise content management (ECM) solution suite yet – OnBase 14!

Taking our latest version for a test drive is a great way to see how OnBase is evolving to solve the current issues your organization is experiencing. If you thought mobile, case management and advanced capture were exciting – and valuable – in OnBase 13, wait until you see OnBase14.

OnBase 14 is all about you. Our vision is to remain the most relevant and user-friendly solution in the industry. That’s why, as always, we incorporated customer requests into the more than 4,000 enhancements to OnBase 14.

You can place some of the new functionalities I’m most enthusiastic about into three categories. Each category helps you better control your organization’s documents and information:

Let’s take a deeper dive and see how OnBase 14 enables organizations to further increase speed and accuracy while decreasing costs.

User experience

OnBase 14 includes several enhancements to the user experience with new, interactive reporting dashboards, a redesigned HTML web client and improvements to integrations with Microsoft® Outlook® and Novelle GroupWise®. It also delivers access to information to those outside the organization with a brand new External Access Client. This empowers customers, constituents, students, patients, vendors and brokers with self-service access not only to information stored in OnBase, but important processes as well.

The OnBase Web Client is now more feature rich, with a more customizable look and feel. It also offers broader browser support. Additionally, we improved Workflow and WorkView | Case Manager – both great ways to decrease your dependency on paper, speed processes and share information.

We’ve also strengthened OnBase’s ability to integrate behind the scenes, so your employees can easily access documents and information from familiar business applications like:

  • CAD Services
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft Office
  • Email
  • Signatures

Solution owner experience

OnBase AnyDoc is now more configurable. This allows users to create advanced features – like building eForms without any HTML or programming knowledge – in hours, instead of the days or weeks it takes with custom programming. OnBase 14 also takes Advanced Capture a step further, automating even more of your indexing – eliminating manual tasks and the accompanying errors.

With the ease of configuration, users configure solutions themselves, letting administrators focus on optimizing OnBase processes.

IT experience

All these enhancements further position OnBase not only as a platform to build applications, but also as an information hub for the enterprise that’s built on a single, secure and scalable architecture. OnBase 14 even introduces a new architecture component, the Enterprise Integrations Server, orchestrating a near real-time, guaranteed data exchange between on premises and cloud-based applications.

While continuing to work well with other cloud applications, OnBase 14 introduces support for Google Docs and Gmail. It also includes compatibility with Unicode, supporting global organizations operating in multiple languages.

For me, the most important aspect of OnBase 14 is its robust security. IT departments will sleep well at night, knowing that employees at their organizations can securely share content without losing custody. In an age when information is constantly being shared, your organization needs to know it can do so while maintaining ownership of the materials it has created.

OnBase also has many built-in security features that allow your document, information and data to be as secure as you require, including:

  • Built-in users and groups, where authorized users receive the specific access they require
  • Access through https internet connections
  • Compatibility with file server security options like NTFS and Samba
  • 256 bit data encryption
  • Secure CMIS compatibility

I could go on and on, but if your organization depends on instant, secure access to information, you should come down to Orlando right now and see OnBase 14 for yourself!
