US company Hyland, provider of the OnBase cloud-based content and process management system, has announced the opening of two data centres in New Zealand — in co-location facilities in Auckland and Wellington — saying the move will support the growing global demand for solutions hosted in the Hyland Cloud.
Hyland said the new centres would add to its “expanding list of strategic sites located across seven countries that support more than 700 hosted customers throughout the world.”
It said the new centres met “the rigorous standards for data sovereignty and encryption required by the New Zealand government, ensuring customer data is protected by the highest levels of digital and physical security protocols.”
OnBase is described as “a single enterprise information platform for managing content, processes and cases deployed via mobile, on-premises or in the Hyland Cloud.”
According to Hyland it provides “enterprise content management, case management, business process management), records management and capture all on a single platform.” It is complemented by Hyland’s ShareBase offering, billed as “a cloud-based enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) application for securely sharing content inside and outside of an organisation.”
Hyland announced a partnership with New Zealand IT services company Techtonics in late 2015 saying Techtonics would support OnBase with “a range of consulting, implementation and enablement services and will offer OnBase to both customers and prospects satisfying market demand being fuelled by IT department adoption in New Zealand for cloud, mobile, capture and case management technologies.”
Auckland based ECM360 also claims to be a Platinum Partner and “the leading provider of Hyland Software's enterprise content management solution” in New Zealand.
Hyland entered the Australian market in 2013 with a locally hosted instance of OnBase. In mid 2014 it announced an, unspecified, expansion of its presence there “due to continued growth in the Australian market for reliable and scalable ECM solutions and Cloud hosting capabilities for industries including healthcare, insurance, government, and manufacturing.”
A year later, in August 2015 it named Bob Dunn as its first country manager for Australia to help expand its Asia-Pacific business. Then in February 2016 it announced a partnership with Australian Fusion information management services company Fusion Information Management.
