.NET

I highly recommend .Net as a platform for custom development. We can leverage several UI elements and also integrate with third party controls like Telerik, Infragistics etc. Provides platforms, tools, and a programming environment for addressing the design and overall management of distributed and multi-tiered applications. It offers immeasurable benefits for various issues like memory management, security, and exceptional handling, a developer may face. .NET is not suited in case of multi-platform requirement. There isn't support available from MS and isn't available straight after installing Visual Studio. If that is a criteria for your business case then consider a different platform.Also .NET is very easy to reverse engineer. If you do not obfuscate your code, you may as well publish the source code.The footprint of your application can be huge if it requires a version of .NET, which is not already on the computer and therefore has to be installed first.

OnBase by Hyland

Hyland Onbase is simple, effective, and just works for when it comes to content management systems. Many companies rely on static folder structures for storing information or Excel/Access tables which can easily become a mess whereas with Onbase every document is unique and access can be restricted/audited depending on user permissions. It allows for a company to easily take control of their information and be more productive.

  • Tools to assist with configuration changes especially for Workflow processes.
  • Easy to query the database to pull reports on usage.
  • Support for a wide variety of files that can be stored within the product.
  • Great support channels for resolving application issues.

Cons

.NET

  • You need to buy everything from Microsoft. The biggest con is that it is not free like Java. Migrating applications to .NET can be expensive.
  • Does not come with multi-platform support from Microsoft, and is not available right after installing Visual Studio.
  • Very much Windows OS dependent.

OnBase by Hyland

  • Printing multiple drawings from a hit list.
  • We are currently working with our Value Added Reseller and Hyland to enable a print button that would allow us to print multiple drawings from a hit list. Our users might need entire sets of electrical one line diagrams or piping and instrument diagrams for plant operations or project work. The disabled option stems from the fact that some engineering drawings are created with external drawings (XRefs or external references) that are referenced inside a drawing. Because 99% of our drawings are simple drawings that do not use external references, the disable print button is a handicap. If not resolved in this issue, which is still our hope, Hyland is aware that the issue needs to be fixed in the future.

Microsoft .NET is very easy to get started with. All you need to do is download the free Microsoft Visual Studio and you can be off and running developing in Microsoft .NET. Deployment is very easy as all the libraries you will need will come pre-installed in Windows and can be easily downloaded for other operating systems.

Adoption and usability of OnBase have gone extremely well for us due to the system's ability to integrate with nearly any other system your organization uses. In addition to ease-of-use of Hyland's Unity and Web clients, modules like Application Enabler allow us to read information from any app in order to serve-up OnBase content to the end-user

As Microsoft Gold Partners, we do have access to a lot of additional information and support from Microsoft. Still, the availability of "open and free" documentation, community, and enthusiasts of the platform is vast. Added to that, the quality of resources provided for all the Microsoft ecosystem is very impressive.

In my experience with the customer support of OnBase, the issues that have been submitted were all addressed and fixed in a timely manner. There are also several ways to submit a ticket such as creating one online or calling the phone number provided on their site. An account manager, success advisor, and support team are all assigned to helping you with any questions or issues that arise and phone numbers and email addresses for each of those areas are provided as well.

Alternatives Considered

.NET

We have worked with Java in the past but their library, functions, features out the box are not as helpful as those provided by .NET. Additionally, these features can be harder to implement depending on your business and it's harder to find these skills/resources from the development pool.

OnBase by Hyland

We switched off of Perceptive Content because their support was absolutely horrendous and the company just completely stopped innovating. Their platform didn't provide the ability to integrate like OnBase does today. There are no limits to what we can achieve within OnBase. whereas we were very limited in what could be automated within Perceptive.
DocFinity (Evaluated)
We evaluated DocFinity at the same time as OnBase. They had similar capabilities in terms of integrations but severely lacked the infrastructure and team to implement it well. We were overwhelmed with their lack of knowledge around their system and their inability to listen to their customers.

Return on Investment

.NET

  • Saved us time from having to evaluate many different Java libraries which did not integrate well or had questionable support lifetimes.
  • Saved us from having to track down CLASSPATH issues.
  • Saved us from servers crashing due to lack of PermGen space.

  • We have saved time and money by eliminating our paper form process that had to be faxed, scanned or hand-delivered to each approver.
  • We streamlined a workflow that used to be handled separately by 4 departments under the same OnBase umbrella.
  • Our end-users appreciate being able to submit requests on the web instead of using a paper form or PDF.
