    The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

    Did you know Hollywood legend Hedy Lamarr played a key role in the invention of spread-spectrum technology? Like many women before and after her, Hedy helped set the stage for today’s digital transformation. As the digital landscape has changed over the years, so has its makeup (no pun intended!) From Marissa Mayer to Sheryl Sandberg to Canada’s own Grace Hopper women have been making their mark and have become front and center in the technology field. At OpenText, we recognize the importance of women in the field of technology. It is why we designed our own Women in Technology (WIT) and continue to grow and expand the initiative year over year. This week we have sent a delegation of women to the 2016 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. The conference brings together more than 15,000 women technologists from all over the world. Research, career interests, collaboration, and networking are at the forefront of this important event and it all happens this week in Houston, Texas. Amazing keynote speakers and sessions will inspire and educate all attendees. Last year, we sent a delegation of 10 incredible women who are born leaders that have made incredible impacts throughout their careers at OpenText. Through their experience, they determined that the delegation would benefit with two different groups: Emerging Tech Leaders and Trailblazers. Our Emerging Tech Leaders are early in their technical careers, while our Trailblazers have established themselves as leaders and people of influence in their positions. All 10 delegates were nominated by their Executive Leadership Team in their respective functions and needed to meet specific criteria. A delegate is wicked smart and has made meaningful contributions to the organization. She may not have high visibility in the organization, but has taken initiative and is driven by speed and vision, not fear. She demonstrates a passion for learning, technology excellence and the sharing of knowledge and ideas. Most importantly, she advocates for others and is an active participant in advancing WIT. These are this year’s delegates. Our Trailblazers: (Left to Right) Rackel Correa, Director, Global Support Services – São Paulo, Brazil Sandra Tiskens, …

    New Graduate Finds his Calling as an OpenText Consultant

    Like many new graduates fresh out of university, Benjamin Panzer didn’t have a clear concept of the type of work he wanted to do. A self-described “explorer type”, Benjamin did, however, have an idea of the types of things that he valued in an employment opportunity: the ability to learn every day, an opportunity for career growth, and the chance to voice his ideas. At a career fair, Benjamin was introduced to OpenText. He explains, “From the very start of the conversation with OpenText, I felt that the spirit and open mind set of the organization, and the room for opportunity to develop personally and professionally, made this company appear to be exactly what I had been looking for.” Three and a half years later, Benjamin feels that his initial outlook on OpenText was spot on. Benjamin has thrived in the unique global environment, and in a short time has been promoted from Junior Consultant to Consultant within the Professional Services function of the organization. He chalks this down, in part, to our organization’s global scale and Canadian roots, which motivate him. “The very best thing about OpenText for me is that it’s the perfect combination of several global influences. The German mentality of high commitment, teamwork, and almost familial culture; combined with the global perspective, as well as the Canadian and American spirit of facing challenges head on and getting things done.” Benjamin also appreciates the location of the OpenText Grasbrunn office. It’s very close to Munich and the Alps, so Benjamin is able to enjoy city life and outdoor activities with friends: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and enjoying the beautiful landscape. The office culture in Grasbrunn is also appealing to Benjamin. “When you enter our Grasbrunn office you will notice the open culture, open minds, and the high volume of great ideas. It’s a place of engagement, but also a place to just feel appreciated and acknowledged by your colleagues. We have great areas to have a chat or a delicious coffee together. This environment provides the foundation for our winning teams to succeed.” Visit our Careers pages to …

    How IoT Enables a Hyper Connected Supply Chain

    Over the last three years I have been following the Internet of Things (IoT) sector very closely. It has been an interesting journey, not least because the IoT sector is continually evolving and new startup companies appear on the market on an almost daily basis. Some would argue that IoT has been around far longer and for some elements of the technologies used in an IoT environment that is certainly true. But let’s focus on the here and now. Cisco started the ball rolling in late 2013 when they introduced one of the first conferences dedicated to IoT, the IoT World Forum, and this was the event that sparked my interest in this sector. In 2014 GE, now GE Digital, became a provider of IoT solutions, mainly focused on the analytics sector. At the same time PTC, my former employer, went on a serial acquisition trail to help position themselves as a leader in the sector. Today, we seem to be entering a period of IoT partnerships, with SAP partnering with Vodafone for edge connectivity and more recently with Bosch for industrial based solutions. SAP also announced a $2Billion investment in the IoT space over the next few years. IoT is an interesting sector as it has applications in our our home, work and leisure related activities and startup companies are still evolving to capture each of these very different sectors. It is interesting to see so much partnership and investment activity in the IoT sector at the moment. For one reason or another, IoT seems to be struggling when it comes to standards, it would appear that most of the regions around the world have yet to settle on a standard IoT definition, let alone define standards for information exchange and communications. In North America the market is heavily driven by the Industrial Internet, with GE Digital driving the sector, with support from a host of Silicon Valley high tech companies. In Europe, Industry 4.0 leads with large industrial companies such as Bosch and Schneider Electric establishing internal software divisions to develop solutions for this sector. Then you have …

    Announcing…The First Cloud Fax Solution Built Specifically for Healthcare

    Faxing remains one of the top methods of patient information exchange in healthcare. Despite this dominance, healthcare providers continue to use fax solutions – most notably fax machines – that are a security risk, inefficient and disruptive to workflows, and especially aren’t designed for the unique needs of the healthcare industry. Today, OpenText announced the launch of OpenText™ Fax2Mail for Healthcare, the first cloud fax solution built specifically for the US healthcare industry. This new solution, which combines the reliability of OpenText cloud faxing with an easy-to-use, intuitive portal powered by Kno2TM, brings patient information exchange and clinical workflows together in a single solution. Improving patient information exchange, starting with cloud faxing First and foremost, isn’t it time to get rid of fax machines? The first step is to get providers to move away from paper-and-toner faxing to a digital form with cloud fax. The compliance risks, inefficiency and productivity loss with paper-based, manual faxing are well understood, yet the use of standalone fax machines continues to prevail. Cloud faxing with OpenText Fax2Mail is an easy way to start to transform how patient information is exchanged.  Fax2Mail enables the secure and encrypted electronic exchange of clinical documents, reducing compliance risk associated with paper-based faxing. Fax2Mail eliminates all on-site infrastructure, providing the easiest form of faxing available, allowing you to focus on patient care. More than “just another cloud fax solution” With the introduction of OpenText Fax2Mail for Healthcare, faxing, Direct messaging and other forms of electronic exchange are combined together in a fully compliant, interoperable patient document exchange platform, ultimately, improving patient care.  The new solution includes powerful tools that mirror existing manual workflows and streamlines them, eliminating paper-based and manual patient information exchange to digitize and simplify the document trail and expedite access to patient information. Designed for administrators and clinicians, OpenText Fax2Mail for Healthcare delivers the right patient information to the right provider at the right time. Combing all forms of patient information exchange while digitizing workflows makes this a cloud fax solution like none other in the industry. OpenText Fax2Mail for Healthcare is an easy-to-use, interoperable platform that: Reduces the …

    Election Tracker ’16: The Monday U.S. Presidential Debate

    Last Monday’s Presidential Debate was a history of firsts: it was the first time Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump appeared on stage together for a head-to-head debate; it was the first to feature a female presidential candidate; it was the first to be live streamed in its entirety; and for the first time, viewers were able to monitor news media reactions as they occurred using Election Tracker ’16. Election Tracker ’16 Dashboard Back in February, I announced the release of Election Tracker ‘16—an online application that allows users to visually monitor, compare, and gain insight into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election coverage. For this election, the tool analyzes text from more than 400,000 online articles and displays associated sentiments based on summaries of topics and tones of coverage in a dashboard. This includes coverage of last Monday’s debate. Election Tracker ’16 demonstrates the power of predictive analytics and sentiment analysis. Leading up to the debate, we were able to predict that candidates would cover topics like foreign policy, terrorism, campaign finance, immigration, and armed forces based on the most popular keywords that the media has covered. The coverage of each topic is displayed by Election Tracker ’16 (as shown below). Coverage of Candidate Topics The Election Tracker ’16 dashboard allows users to compare topics by candidate according to media mentions. The candidates’ top topics can be accessed and filtered by media sentiment. An overall breakdown by media mentions is also available. Comparison of Media Sentiment The application also serves up interesting “Did You Know” facts related to campaign coverage. For example, “Huffington Post took clearly more negative approach to Trump’s campaign than to Clinton’s: Clinton received 25% of negative opinions while Trump almost 46%.” Overall positive and negative sentiment percentages for each candidate are also displayed. In what is proving to be a data-driven race for President, Election Tracker ’16 reveals media reactions to campaign rhetoric, analyzing sentiment to unlock insights hidden in the unstructured data. It is a working example of how complex data can be transformed to provide unique insights, and a great showcase of the power of analyzing …
