When organizations are evaluating technology products, they want options. Organizations with an existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) system are no different as they search for an enterprise content management (ECM) solution. They’re often looking for a solution that offers capabilities that complement their ERP solution, has proven successes in organizations like theirs, and provides an integration that has been certified by the ERP provider. Most importantly, they’re looking for an ECM solution that does more than just integrate easily with the ERP application – they want a solution that can expand its content management and workflow capabilities across departments. With hundreds of customers running its OnBase ECM solution together with the SAP® ERP application, Hyland Software continued its commitment to supporting SAP solutions by recently recertifying the integration of its OnBase solution, specifically OnBase 11.0, with the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform.
“There’s a lot of time and money invested in an ERP system, and therefore, users are focused on getting the most out it. It’s why so many continue to look to ECM specifically to augment the capabilities of the ERP,” said Becca Toth, industry manager for Hyland Software. “Because an ERP system is the go-to system for many customers, these users demand that the ECM solution they choose is proven to work with a particular ERP system – not the other way around. It’s why our customers that use SAP solutions place a lot of value in OnBase, certified for integrating with SAP NetWeaver, as well as the eight OnBase modules we offer to support their SAP solutions.”
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that OnBase 11.0 integrates with SAP ERP 6.0. This certification means that, via the integration scenario SAP ArchiveLink® software for archiving systems (BC-AL) 6.0, OnBase is able to exchange critical data with instances of SAP Business Suite software.
Since OnBase first achieved SAP-certified integration with SAP ArchiveLink and SAP NetWeaver in 2004, Hyland has continued to enhance and add capabilities to its solution in support of SAP applications. Specifically, these capabilities automatically update data in SAP solutions in real-time when content is added or changed in OnBase – all without user interaction. This way, users don’t have to manually update both systems, and most importantly, can stay within their familiar SAP interface.
“This real-time, database-level integration that OnBase offers with SAP solutions is a major advantage for these ERP users who choose OnBase. But while the integration is important, they’re finding that the real value comes from being able to extend OnBase to the rest of their organization,” said Toth. “Armed with its point-and-click configurability, we’ve had customers rollout OnBase in almost a viral way from department to department, oftentimes connecting their entire organization with workflow and access to information. Integrating with SAP solutions might be their first OnBase win. But it’s this enterprise potential that delivers the long-term, sustainable value.”
