KOM Welcomes Hyland Software to its KOMunity Technology Alliance Partnership
Ottawa, ON Canada – July 27, 2004
KOM Networks, Inc., a global leader in storage management software, specializing in Archiving, Security and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) software solutions, announced today that Hyland Software, Inc., developers of OnBase, enterprise-class software that combines integrated document management, business process management and records management in a single web-enabled application, has joined its KOMunity Program as a new Technology Alliance Partner (TAP).
In an ever-changing world economy, enterprise content management (ECM) solutions have become a significant component of how companies manage and conduct their business. The recent developments in the securities markets, and the ensuing public scrutiny, have led legislators to tighten the laws and regulations that govern how companies conduct business and retain information to provide more transparency. Organizations are struggling with managing these new restrictions and the associated liabilities. The strength of Hyland's OnBase ECM solutions, coupled with KOM's secure flexible storage technologies, can provide significant cost savings and improve business efficiencies for end user organizations.
"We are excited about this joint initiative," said Bill Priemer, Hyland's vice president of Sales and Marketing. "Because of their significant presence in the finance, government and healthcare industries, partnering with KOM should accelerate the acceptance and use of OnBase by companies of all sizes in those industries."
There has always been a critical requirement for organizations to enact records management processes, and the growth of online information has only increased that need by having to find ways to protect and manage electronic data. Recently, compliance and ILM have emerged as essential elements of every solution and strategic storage plan, in response to legislation and other initiatives. KOM's storage management software provides key capabilities and enablers required for compliance, as well as strategically manage and secure electronic documents and data for ILM.
"KOM's transparent and highly adaptive approach to storage management enables us to quickly and effectively deliver the secure, compliant solutions our customers are demanding, as well as rapidly respond to changes in their environment with minimal or no downtime", said Priemer.
"We are pleased to welcome Hyland as a member of our KOMunity TAP program. We appreciate their continued support and recognition of the value that our software brings to solutions for their customers", says Dr. Taher Shaath, CEO of KOM Networks. He added, "We look forward to working with them to create comprehensive and innovative responses to their customers' needs."
