Hyland Software, one of the world's largest and fastest growing independent providers of enterprise content management (ECM) software, announced recently that it has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with KOM Networks, creator and world-leading provider of secure archiving software and solutions.
"We've been saying for years that application and storage vendors need to work closely to deliver versatile archive and retention solutions that protect and preserve vital and sensitive data," said Joseph Martins, managing director for the Data Mobility Group. "By combining these two technologies, companies will have a comprehensive ECM software suite that is fully integrated with a secure archive repository."
The newly formed alliance allows Hyland to sell, deploy and service KOMworx and KOMpliance. Both KOM and Hyland will work closely to seamlessly integrate the OnBase suite with KOMpliance, providing a secure and high performance archive repository that meets varying compliance regulations and requirements. This in turn will make it easier for Hyland to support its customers who are already using KOM software.
"The thing that drives Hyland more than anything else is taking care of our customers," said Bill Filion, vice president of software development for Hyland Software. "And a good number of them, including many of whom are also using MEDITECH, are already benefitting from KOM products. Our relationship with KOM has evolved over the past 10 years. This new agreement will allow us to take the already outstanding support we offer our mutual customers to another level."
"This partnership will allow us work closer with Hyland than ever before," said Kamel Shaath, chief technology officer for KOM Networks. "The tight integration of technologies will also allow us to quickly reach Hyland's customer base, many of whom have already expressed interest in our products. KOMpliance will serve as a cost effective, highly efficient and broad data protection and retention solution that is a strong alternative to the more antiquated archive storage infrastructures."
