Hyland joins The Linux Foundation

Acquisitions of Alfresco and Nuxeo deepen Hyland’s expertise; Hyland sponsoring Open Source Summit Europe 2022

Hyland, a leading content services provider, has joined The Linux Foundation and is set to sponsor Open Source Summit Europe, reinforcing the company’s deep and growing commitment to the open source community.

The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit tech consortium founded in 2000 to standardise Linux, support its growth and promote its commercial adoption. Next week’s Open Source Summit Europe, held in Dublin, is the premier open source event for developers, technologists and community leaders.

Hyland tech evangelist Angel Borroy and community manager Antoine Thomas, each long-time open source experts, will present at the Summit, on how a cloud-native approach enables developers to best deliver solutions to market.

Hyland acquired Alfresco in 2020, followed by Nuxeo last year, adding two content services solution providers boasting open source technology and teams that brought deep knowledge and experience. Since then, Hyland has executed on its stated open source vision by creating collaborative relationships with other future-forward individuals and organisations, while actively investing in these platforms by releasing regular updates, improvements and new features. Most recently, Hyland released updates to Alfresco and Nuxeo focused on user experience enhancements and security.

“Since acquiring Alfresco and Nuxeo, Hyland has been committed to open source and dedicated to contributing to the community,” said Bill Priemer, Hyland’s president and CEO. “Membership in the Linux Foundation will only deepen our connection to those developers and technologists, and we’re excited to formalise those relationships.”

Customers have enjoyed Hyland’s long track record of innovation and utilised its breadth of platform capabilities to keep pace with the changing ways people work and live. Meanwhile, Hyland’s open source expertise has grown, empowering open innovation for forward-leaning developers and business leaders to:

  • Improve decision making
  • Anticipate the needs of users and customers
  • Increase business agility
  • Speed time-to-value
  • Manage information end-to-end
  • Govern sensitive information
  • Boost productivity
  • Adapt to evolving business needs


Hyland, which has been named a Leader in the industry for twelve straight years by Gartner, will be in Booth G7 at Open Source Summit Europe.
