Hyland, the content services provider, has released OnBase Foundation, the newest version of OnBase complete with new features and security updates.

This release is designed to strengthen organisations' existing technology investments while equipping them for the future, Hyland says.

The release of OnBase Foundation marks the first in what will be a series of Foundation product releases across Hyland's content services platform, the company says.

These releases will incorporate new technology and offer more frequent releases to provide customers with quicker access to enhancements and new functionality, the company states.

OnBase Foundation offers improvements for users and administrators. It will introduce the first in a series of many modern REST APIs, as well as identity and access management services, and more configurable tools for developing purpose-built applications, Hyland says.

Responsive UX components will make it easier to build on and extend OnBase, and to deliver excellent user experiences, the company states.

Hyland president and CEO Bill Priemer says, “OnBase Foundation is, as the name suggests, a foundation customers can rely on into the future.

“We've added powerful new features that provide customers with immediate value, and we've introduced a new versioning strategy to provide customers with more frequent updates and enhancements, equipping them for rapid change and long-term growth,” he says.

Reflecting Hyland's focus on interoperability, OnBase Foundation facilitates connections with Hyland's other content services offerings, including Content Composer, the customer communications management product; ShareBase, a cloud-based document sharing and collaboration solution; and Brainware for intelligent capture.

OnBase Foundation also has deeper integrations with core business systems and increased support for Office 365.

For its governance and compliance offerings, Hyland has also partnered with Iron Mountain to offer a new information governance solution, Governance Rules as a Service, to help automate document retention practices within OnBase.

Henceforth, for products with Foundation versions, Hyland will provide frequent updates via enhancement packs (EPs), starting with this initial release of OnBase Foundation EP1. This will make new features, products and security updates available on an increased cadence for both cloud and on-premises customers throughout a calendar year, the company says.

Additionally, as Hyland continues to develop its new cloud-first, SaaS platform, organisations on Foundation versions will be best positioned to take advantage of the latest capabilities as they are released, according to the company.
