Hummingbird was a Canadian company founded in 1984. It became known for its flagship Exceed product, and evolved as a strong player in the connectivity market. In 1999, it diversified, entering the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market.

In October 2006, OpenText acquired Hummingbird. Hummingbird’s enterprise software solutions, including Exceed, enabled the management of the life cycle of enterprise content. Hummingbird Connectivity Solutions have been renamed and rebranded to OpenText and they continue to be supported under the OpenText Connectivity Solutions family (you can find the old and new Connectivity Solutions naming in the table below).

Today, Connectivity Solutions is a key component for many of our customers and partners. We are proud to offer our customers a long-term path to success with OpenText.
