Delivering products and technologies that address the entire flow of information through an enterprise, OpenText Release 16 provides customers with an integrated and agile solution that can be deployed to digitize any business process, managing information through its entire lifecycle.

    “Digital disruption is toppling market leaders and restructuring industries faster than ever before. In a digital world, the winners will be the ones who find new customers, discover new markets, and pursue new revenue streams using digital channels. These will be the digital leaders, and they will have the competitive advantage,” said OpenText CEO and CTO Mark J. Barrenechea. “With OpenText Release 16, we offer the only integrated EIM platform essential to becoming an information company, and in the digital world we are all Information Companies.”

    “OpenText is at the center of how DDR collaborates as an organization, with OpenText Content Suite having been a key infrastructure application for more than 10 years,” said Kim Scharf, Vice President of IT Enterprise Services, DDR Corp. “Over that time, OpenText solutions have enabled us to manage the growing volumes of content and drive innovation across our business. As we continue to compete in an increasingly digital world, we look forward to implementing the many new features of OpenText Release 16."

    “New entrants in the marketplace are taking advantage of new platforms, tools, and integrations to displace many of the established market leaders,” said Nick Patience, Research Vice President, Software, 451 Research. “In a digital world, organizations must embrace digitization or face the risk of losing market share, or worse, becoming obsolete.”

  • New SAP® Hybris® Digital Documents by OpenText Goes Beyond Traditional CRM to Help Customers with Digital Transformation

    WATERLOO, ON – 2016-3-3 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced the extension of a global reseller agreement with SAP (NYSE: SAP), whereby SAP will resell the SAP® Hybris® Digital Documents application by OpenText. SAP Hybris Digital Documents helps customers digitally transform their businesses and go beyond traditional CRM with a unified platform for engaging digital content and communications. It is complementary to the SAP Hybris Digital Assets Management application by OpenText, a market-leading omni-channel DAM (Digital Asset Management) solution.

    Communicating one-on-one with a customer or prospect is critical to every omni-channel strategy. To accomplish this, many companies are moving to digitize their customer communications. SAP Hybris Digital Documents enables businesses to leverage big-data insights to provide proactive, contextualized communications with their customers that are tightly integrated into data and processes running in SAP Hybris solutions, as well as integration with the SAP HANA® platform for analytics.

    “Digital transformation is at the core of both OpenText and SAP Hybris solutions, helping enable customers to become a true digital enterprise,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “With a unified platform and personalized communications, SAP Hybris Digital Documents increases the value and completeness of SAP Hybris Commerce, SAP Hybris Marketing and SAP Hybris Billing by enabling proactive and personalized digital customer communications.

With the strength of these combined offerings, OpenText has been named the SAP Hybris Global ISV Partner of the Year for the second year in a row.”

    CRM, commerce, marketing and billing communications have multiple point solutions, but typically lack a unified touch point that tightly integrates across all channels and applications. SAP Hybris Digital Documents tightly integrates with SAP Hybris solutions, and is designed to be managed entirely within the SAP Hybris solution with relevant data from systems running the software. SAP Hybris Digital Documents helps customers to:
     

    • Convert bills into digital customer communication channels with customer-specific customer service, billing and marketing messages with the SAP Hybris Billing solution
    • Drive revenues with personalized store receipts, packing lists, price tags and labels with SAP Hybris Commerce solutions
    • Generate leads and improve satisfaction with personalized emails, and proactive notifications and correspondence
    • Configure individual and mass quotes and contracts with SAP Hybris Commerce, the SAP Customer Relationship Management application and the SAP Configure, Price, and Quote solution
    • Contextualize customer interactions with integration to SAP HANA

    “Enabling a true omni-channel strategy is key to success for today’s businesses,” said Brian Walker, chief strategy officer with hybris. “SAP Hybris Digital Documents offers the ability to deliver personalized and unified customer communication, a key element in driving relevant and consistent omni-channel engagement. Our customers can benefit from a simplified digital strategy that combines data and content tailored to each of their channels and audiences.”

  • Big Data Analysis Solution Monitors, Compares, and Visualizes Media Coverage Surrounding U.S. Presidential Race with OpenText Release 16

    WATERLOO, ON – 2016-2-1 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced Election Tracker '16. Election Tracker ’16 allows users to visually monitor, compare, and analyze media coverage surrounding the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election coverage from the world's top online news publications and agencies. Individuals are encouraged to access the election tool at Electiontracker.us for a complete picture of the current media coverage of the U.S. Presidential election.

    Election Tracker ’16 curates text from thousands of online news articles and global media outlets, to create meaningful, visual, and highly interactive dashboards that summarize and compare coverage across news outlets, presidential candidates, hot topics, and tone. With Election Tracker ’16, users can visualize election trends as they unfold in the news media. The interactive tool can also compare candidates based on mentions across topics, history, geography, or sentiment. The topics, which represent key election issues, are dynamically generated from the news coverage. Electiontracker.us was built using Process Suite, Content Suite and Analytics Suite Release 16.

    “Analyzing both structured and unstructured data provides a full picture of any situation to enable smarter, data-driven business decisions,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “Election Tracker '16 evaluates election news coverage, using the articles themselves as a source of unstructured data. OpenText technology actually analyzes the content of the unstructured data, much in the way a human would, only much faster and with a perfect memory and better aggregate insight over massive volumes. Election Tracker ’16 is a working example of unstructured data analysis in action and showcases its ability to provide a solution to an increasingly common business concern across all industries.”

    Election Tracker ’16 is a prime example that demonstrates the power and importance of unstructured data analysis. While many databases and data visualization tools are available, most only deal with the structured data in an organization. However, as the amount of unstructured data contains far greater insight and context, organizations are facing a fundamental challenge. With OpenText, organizations can access and harvest data from any unstructured source, including documents, web sites, social sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), email, document archives (PDF), RSS feeds and blogs – even EIM, ECM, CRM and other core Enterprise systems. These sources can then be combined with structured data to provide a complete picture of the organization and valuable context including customer sentiment, discussion, brand coverage, media and internet trends or anything you can imagine.

    Most pure-play text analytics solutions on the market today do not create a full analysis. They are limited to translating free text to entities and taxonomies, leaving the actual visualization and analysis to other technologies. Election Tracker ’16 combines the power of content analytics with data analytics by leveraging OpenText InfoFusion to process the content and OpenText Analytics Information Hub to provide dynamic, secure, and scalable visualization of the data.

    OpenText Release 16 powers Electiontracker.us.

    OpenText InfoFusion provides standard taxonomies for classifying and extracting meta-data from raw text, assessing its sentiment, and extracting entities such as places, people, organizations, trademarks, products or election issues. Using OpenText Analytics Suite - Information Hub, customer are able to represent the data in any visual format required, offering a huge palette of out-of-the-box charts, graphs and maps for effective data visualization. Specializing in custom visualization, Information Hub can create visuals such as word clouds, treemaps and heatmaps and delivers them as HTML, PDF, Excel, Word, PowerPoint and more. All the information is stored and secured in OpenText Content Suite.

    The OpenText EIM strategy consists of comprehensive and integrated product suites including Content Suite, Process Suite, Experience Suite, Discovery Suite, Information Exchange, and Analytics.
