I think [Atlassian] Confluence is an amazing option for larger companies however for a smaller team of less than 20 it might not be the best choice. It definitely helps our team stay connected while working remotely and we're able to stay on top of projects with ease.

The overall product itself is first class. The Hyland training department and the material provided is first class as well. The solution is scalable and agile. Because a solution can be configured with no coding required, it can meet needs without additional staffing. Solutions with Hyland can also be built on to. So, say you start with a small scan, index, and retrieve function and then later want to add on a workflow piece, you can take the same information, system and add on to the solution. From there, an organization can add on additional functions like work view/case management, advanced capture, and other modules to grow the solution.

Pros

Confluence

  • QUICK How-to Guides that can be generated and share instantly
  • One can subscribe to the pages and spaces and receive updates in the feed on their home page
  • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
  • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability
Binoy Shah | TrustRadius Reviewer

OnBase by Hyland

  • Integration with third party applications is amazing. Being able to get documents and information through email, folder importing, mainframe screens, other applications, and xml/csv streams was simple, powerful, and effective.
  • The Application Enabler utility is one of the best I've seen which allows integration with 3rd party applications to easily pull up and locate related information within an Onbase system.
  • The administration of the platform is simple and with minimal training can be maintained by a regular system administrator.

Cons

Confluence

  • Over the past 6 years the feature set has not significantly expanded
  • Integrations with 3rd party apps (DropBox, Google Drive, Slack) is either through 3rd party plugins or rudimentary at best
  • Frequent interface upgrades and complicated permissions settings makes getting new employees up to speed fiddly in some cases
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

OnBase by Hyland

  • Lack of feature parity between clients. Some features are supported in Thick Client, but not in Unity Client (Or the other way around).
  • Confusing menu structures within administrative programs. Lots of bouncing between programs in order to configure or tweak things.
  • Report Services is an additional license and should be included with the base product.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

As long as you know the document type you're looking for, OnBase is great. If you don't know the document type, you could have to look through many to find what you need. Or you could use a Custom Query, but then you have to learn which one to use. This is for the general user trying to retrieve documents. An Admin, or someone that uses OnBase daily will not have this issue and will consider easier to use.

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

I have had exceptional support from Hyland; however, I am a direct customer from Hyland and receive support directly from Hyland support technicians. I have heard complaints from other customers who have partner relationships as then the support is 100% driven through the partner and you are dependent on the skills and abilities of your partner corporate support team.

Alternatives Considered

[Atlassian] Confluence is backed by direct, and superior support from Atlassian versus their vendors. For end users, [Atlassian] Confluence provides way more options for layout and content, while also being simpler and easier to use. Most other tools also require a higher level of interaction with IT or global administrators. With confluence, both content creators and consumers can draft an consume content with a much smoother, more intuitive experience.

We utilized another product prior to OnBase but we were alerted that there were possible issues with solvency of the company. We were able to switch to OnBase. There are two other groups in our company that are using products (Alfresco and an internally created program) to share PDF files of drawings with others. While I have not used these programs here are some comments I have heard. These two particular software programs are limited to sharing only PDF files with users. This is to make sure that the native file is not downloaded and edited by anyone who so desires to make changes. Control of the master electronic drawing file is not possible in these programs

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.

Return on Investment

Confluence

  • Confluence has increased cross-departmental visibility into content, activities, and projects
  • Confluence has also increased collaboration across teams
  • The lack of a workflow has created a wild west environment where stakeholders are confused of where to create and find various types of content
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

OnBase by Hyland

  • We have leveraged OnBase to automate many tasks that have been paper driven in the past and are now electronic.
  • Because OnBase is so versatile, it has been the solution for projects that otherwise would have caused the system to purchase another application.
