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 were renamed and rebranded to OpenText and now live under the OpenText Connectivity family.
