OpenText Unveils Enterprise Information Management Cloud

At Enterprise World, OpenText’s annual customer conference, the company unveiled OpenText Cloud, which aims to provide all OpenText software as cloud-based offerings, in addition to the existing on-premises products. OpenText provides enterprise information management software that enables companies to manage, secure and leverage their unstructured business information. OpenText Cloud provides customers with anytime, anywhere access to OpenText's EIM solution portfolio in the cloud, including more than 20 ready-to-use applications and services. 

“One of the biggest concerns for our customers is remaining in control of all the data even if it lives in the cloud. They still need to have complete assurance over where in the cloud that it lives,” Lubor Ptacek, vice president of strategic marketing at OpenText, tells 5 Minute Briefing. “And that is why a lot of customers struggle with the public cloud-based tools.”  

The comprehensive set of EIM services offered by OpenText Cloud combines the economic benefits of a cloud deployment (lower overhead, no infrastructure or maintenance costs), with enterprise-grade security, compliance, social collaboration services and complementary capabilities.

Purpose-built for EIM, the OpenText Cloud provides a complete stack that includes the specific knowledge and contextual support for deployment and maintenance, management, monitoring, security, optimization, upgrade and application management, including service-level agreement on application availability.

“There are a multitude of offerings and in fact we are in the process of moving our entire portfolio of products into the cloud. At this point our offerings span all the key functionality areas that define our EIM strategy,” says Ptacek.  “They include enterprise content management, business process management, customer experience management, information exchange and discovery. It is a very broad set of offerings.”
