Posted Oct 09, 2017

Hyland’s position in the Leaders quadrant follows seven consecutive years as a Leader in the related Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management

CLEVELAND – Hyland was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms. The report is an evolution of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, which had consecutively recognized Hyland as a Leader from 2010-2016 for its enterprise information platform, OnBase by Hyland.

“We feel Gartner’s shift to redefine the market to content services mirrors Hyland’s thinking and strategy, and we are thrilled to be named a Leader in this report,” said Bill Priemer, president and CEO at Hyland. “Perhaps what’s most exciting is earning what we believe is a recognition that further supports Hyland’s long-held stance – that to embrace digital transformation, organizations need more than the ability to manage content.”

Organizations around the world use OnBase as a content services platform for managing content, processes and cases that may be rapidly deployed on-premises or in the Hyland Cloud. ShareBase by Hyland – Hyland’s cloud-based, file sharing platform – is leveraged to securely share and collaborate internally and externally. Hyland’s product portfolio suite provides business users with complete, centralized views of the information required to work most effectively within the familiar, third-party applications they know and use.

“Hyland has been evolving and innovating from the very beginning. Our commitment has never been stronger to swiftly elevate and enhance our content services solutions and provide end users with rich, intuitive experiences on any browser and any device,” said Brenda Kirk, EVP and chief product and strategy officer at Hyland. “We are pleased that this report recognizes Hyland for its products and solutions, which we feel underscores our continued leading position across the industries we serve.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms evaluates OnBase 16. Hyland’s newest product offering, OnBase 17, was released for general availability in June 2017, after the cut-off point for evaluation.
