Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 Equips Organizations with a Business Solutions Framework for Competitive Success

    Online News published in DMReview.com
November 15, 2005

The development of Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 was driven by the transformation of ECM from a solution to control content into a robust business solutions framework. It incorporates next-generation, highly intuitive functionality to help customers across all industries and around the world put their business content to work for them.

According to Gartner Inc. Research Vice President, Tom Eid, "Organizations use integrated enterprise content management (ECM) solutions to make content accessible across multiple applications, automate line-of-business processes, reduce the number of implemented point products, and improve corporate governance reporting. ECM solutions provide key business infrastructure and knowledge management technologies; their implementation is a strategic business imperative and drives competitive differentiation."

Hummingbird Enterprise helps organizations address a wide range of business objectives, such as risk mitigation, cost control and competitive advantage. It lets organizations build business solutions that extend the value of their information to take full advantage of their content and streamline their critical processes.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) had three main goals when choosing an enterprise management solution: It had to adequately meet its internal business requirements; it had to be easy to use for staff members; and it had to be cost effective.

"The volume of cases processed and adjudicated by the Court which has jurisdiction in 45 States has risen dramatically and the demands placed on its IT system have grown correspondingly," said John Hunter, Head of IT Division, ECHR. "We have found that the Hummingbird Enterprise suite has always helped us to address these new challenges, through, for example, the introduction of Portal technology and the capabilities offered by Records Management and Workflow.

"The Court is receiving, processing and disseminating more content and information than at any previous time in its history. Consequently there is a greater responsibility to manage and effectively leverage this content. For the Court this principally means delivering relevant information to the people who need it and in a timely fashion. The Court has been able to achieve these goals with the help of Hummingbird enterprise content management solutions and its own Case Management solution CMIS," added Hunter.

With Hummingbird's new Business Solutions Framework and the supplied vertical templates, organizations will be able to easily tailor Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 to meet their business challenges. This results in a substantial increase in user productivity.

Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 minimizes deployment complexities and helps to reduce the total cost of ownership associated with the implementation of business solutions. It also helps to ensure that critical business content is traceable and auditable. The ability to track and report on how content is being used enables organizations to reduce their risk and helps them to ensure regulatory compliance and improve their corporate governance processes.

Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 delivers an integrated suite for managing content and repeatable solutions, including contract management, deal management for financial services, compliance solutions for the public sector, correspondence management for the government sector, and proactive compliance solutions for law firms.

Hummingbird Ltd., a leading global provider of integrated enterprise content management (ECM) and network connectivity solutions, today announced that Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 represents a fundamental shift in the way organizations will use enterprise content management (ECM) systems to address their business challenges.
