Want to Know What Your Peers are up to? – Join the Customer Conversations at Enterprise World

Enterprise World

Attending conferences like OpenText™ Enterprise World provide some of the best opportunities for you, and your company, to take your game to the next level. While we can do lots of research online and keep up with our peers via social media, there’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. People who are willing to take time away from the office to learn something new. People who are happy to disconnect from being online and network in person. Attending conferences can provide unique opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else. At Enterprise World you’ll be able to network with people who know what’s going on in your particular space, not just OpenText staff – although there will be plenty of opportunity to meet with our experts – but other customers who know things you need to know, and can answer your questions too. Whether you attend some of our forty Customer Experience Management focused breakout sessions, or sit in on a Theater presentation, catch a product demo on the Expo floor, or just start a conversation over a cup of coffee you’ll discover that you are not alone in wanting to improve your skills and bring back something of value to your organization. Talking and listening is a great way to get ideas and feedback from others who may be facing the same business and technical challenges that you are. To help with this we are lining up a great roster of customer speakers who want to share their stories, in sessions, panels, and socially. In fact, we will be kicking off the whole CEM track with a track-keynote from a customer. What a better way to start than with a real-life example of how implementing a CEM strategy and solution can bring you and your company real benefits? As with all good conferences, Enterprise World will have many opportunities for attendees to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones. Over coffee, lunch, or cocktails, you may make a connection with the just the right person to help answer some of your questions. At a breakout session you may find yourself sitting next to someone who can provide advice or suggest new approaches. Customer presentations may spark new ideas or open up solutions that you hadn’t even thought of yet. Personally, I always return from a conference with new ideas and approaches that make me more effective. Enterprise World will provide a unique convergence of networking, learning, and fun into a single package; and like all good conferences force you to grow and challenge yourself. If this all sounds like a great reason to spend July 10th to the 13th in Toronto, then make sure to register and we’ll see you there.

5 Active Applications Sessions at Enterprise World

Enterprise World

If you are an OpenText™ Business Network customer (or if you are considering becoming one), we would like to invite you to OpenText™ Enterprise World 2017. We know that it can be tough to take time out of your busy schedule to attend an event, so we are working hard to ensure Enterprise World is relevant to you, your business, and the OpenText solutions you use. Previous blog posts about Business Network at Enterprise World include a summary of why you should attend and a post about the future of the digital supply chain. If you outsource your B2B integration to OpenText™ B2B Managed Services you may not be aware of some of the cloud-based supply chain automation applications we offer. These application provide additional integration and automation capabilities. Sessions at Enterprise World will describe these “Active Applications,” the problems they are designed to solve, and how they can positively impact your business. Here are 5 Active Applications sessions at Enterprise World that you should find valuable: Buying organizations need visibility into frequency of order errors or late deliveries by suppliers. See how these metrics provide the information to help identify potential problems in the supply chain and make adjustments. This session demonstrates supplier performance metric that enable manufacturers to manage under-performing trading partners—ultimately mitigating risk to business performance—and help determine the most strategic trading partners to do more business with. Your B2B integration program’s ROI is determined by the percentage of trading partner you integrate with. So how do you maximize trading partner participation and ROI? We’ll show you how OpenText can help you get your trading partners onboarded – through tools for community management (with new self-service features!), direct connect and EDI VAN enablement, and a web portal for non-digital trading partners plus onboarding services that free your staff for more strategic efforts. Your trading partners want to exchange invoices electronically so they can automate and reduce costs of invoice processing – and so do you. But e-invoicing has a varied set of formats, government requirements and integration challenges. OpenText B2B Managed Services and Active Invoices with Compliance work together for sending, receiving and storing e-invoices that comply with government tax laws and recent business to government (B2G) e-invoicing mandates. This session will discuss what you need to do to comply with ever changing e-invoicing regulations, including upcoming mandates for B2G invoicing in EU countries and the differences between compliance models in Europe and Latin America.  Don’t be shut out of these markets.  Attend this session and learn how to comply. Vendor Compliance is More Than a Manual – see how retailers are capturing vendor compliance violations and increasing accuracy to better offset expenses from shipping errors. Along the way they are also improving relationships with their vendors through clarity and visibility! We’ll show you how the OpenText deduction management solution works and how one customer used it to increase compliance while improving the relationship with their vendors. Active Catalogue & Your Data Synchronization Strategy – this session will explore the benefits of implementing and executing a data synchronization and product catalogue strategy, specifically with OpenText Active Catalogue.  Learn customer best practices, challenges and successes in deploying the Catalogue solution. Also attend to learn the  future direction of Active Catalogue. These Active Applications sessions at Enterprise World are only 5 of many sessions for Business Network customers. Plus, in addition to breakout sessions there are many other activities that you can participate in, such as industry breakouts, live product and solution overviews in our expo hall and a chance to test drive new product enhancements in our developer lab. This year Enterprise World is in Toronto, Canada, and if you are interested in learning more about how Business Network can support your B2B integration needs today and in the future visit our registration page.

AI-Enhanced Search Goes Further Still With Decisiv 8.0

Decisiv

OpenText™ Decisiv extends enterprise search with the power of unsupervised machine learning, a species of AI. I recently blogged about how Decisiv’s machine learning takes search further, helping users find what they’re looking for, even when they’re not sure what that is.   Now, Decisiv 8.0—part of OpenText™ Release 16 and EP2—takes the reach and depth of AI-enhanced search even further. Take Search to More Places In addition to being embedded in both internal and external SharePoint portals, Decisiv has long been integrated with OpenText eDOCS, enabling law firms to combine AI-enhanced search with sophisticated document management. Decisiv also connects to OpenText™ Content Suite, Documentum, and a wide range of other sources to crawl data for federated search. Decisiv 8.0 expands these integrations with the introduction of a new REST API. With this release, administrators can efficiently embed Decisiv’s powerful search capabilities into an even broader range of applications, such as conflicts systems, project management, CRM, and mobile-optimized search interfaces. Take Search Deeper Other enhancements in Decisiv 8.0 include a new Relevancy Analysis display, which shows researchers precisely why their search results received the rankings they did and even lets them compare the predicted relevance of selected documents. This enhancement helps researchers to prioritize their research more effectively and administrators to understand how the engine is functioning and being leveraged across the enterprise. New Open Smart Filter display options also help researchers benefit from using metadata filters to zero in on useful content. By opting to automatically show the top values in each filter category (left side of the screen below), administrators can educate researchers on how to use filters for faster access to the content they need, without training or explanation. Decisiv Goes Beyond Legal Decisiv’s premier law firm customer base leaves some with the impression that Decisiv is just for legal teams. In fact, Decisiv’s machine learning isn’t limited to any specific industry or use case. That’s because it analyzes unstructured content on a statistical basis, rather than taxonomical. (Surprisingly, sometimes lawyers do lead the way on versatile technology.) …and Decisiv Goes to Toronto Learn more about Decisiv Search and our other award-winning Discovery Suite products at Enterprise World this July. You’ll hear from top corporate, law firm, and government customers how their enterprises are leveraging OpenText’s machine learning to discover what matters in their data.

Bring Content Into Context of the EcoSystem with EP2 (SAP, Sharepoint, SuccessFactors, Salesforce, Oracle) and More

EcoSystem

Many of the OpenText EcoSystem products (quick reminder – EcoSystem products are solutions for SAP, Microsoft, Salesforce and Oracle) are part of the EP2 release, building on the foundation laid down last year with Release 16 and adding features requested by you, our customers to improve productivity and speed to implement. xECM Platform: the xECM family of products has grown from xECM for SAP, Oracle EBS and Microsoft Sharepoint this year with new products xECM for Process Suite and xECM for Engineering Documents all based on the platform foundation. You can find more details about these xECM versions, as well as the rest of the Enterprise Applications in the Content Suite EP2 launch blog here, but wait – don’t go just yet, there’s lot’s more to read here too! xECM the platform EP2 has new features to improve Workspace Creation from the lead application, better browsing and View integration as well as Batch Creation. Also, and probably most importantly, Completeness Check. This much requested feature from our customers ensures that a workspace is fully populated, be it a HR workspace for SuccessFactors, or an opportunity workspace for Salesforce. Of course, all of the features in the Core platform are available within the various version of xECM as well. xECM for SAP EP2 continues its market leading, Pinnacle Award winning (10 years in a row) integrations into SAP applications with support for SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer, offering full support for EIM into the Account, Lead and Opportunity workspaces integrated into the C4C UI. To support organisations moving to S/4 HANA Cloud, xECM now extends the CMIS interface to support the SAP CMIS profile. Finally, enhancements have been made to the Business content windows and to the way metadata properties are assigned – improving the implementation times and reducing the need for custom development. xECM for SuccessFactors EP2 adds some very impressive new capabilities including support for HCM on premise. This is critical for customers who have HCM and are migrating to SAP SuccessFactors as you can now view employee data from two systems connected to a single Employee File. Other features include document completeness validation – ensuring all documents are present when a workspace is created and finally, Duration management capabilities to schedule automatic HR document follow ups to aid in HR compliance (e.g. automatic reviews, escalations and expiry dates). These are just the top 3 features in xECM for SuccessFactors however there are many more. xECM for Salesforce EP2 is all about support for Lightning. With EP2 OpenText upgrades the widget integration to Lightning, Salesforce latest experience platform. Following Lightning design principles the integration of the OpenText widget can be flexibly configured to deliver modern enterprise apps. Building on the Lightning design also allows xECM For Salesforce Ep2 to be fully mobile xECM for SharePoint EP2 adds new capabilities to support search, browse and favourite Business Workspaces from within Outlook, making it seamless to add emails to a workspace both from the desktop and web interfaces. Also in EP2 is support for Office Groups integration allowing users to view group calendars, tasks conversations and notes into the Business Workspace and finally a new Search Widget allows Office 365 users to search natively for content in the xECM repository. xECM for Oracle EP2 receives a new coat of paint and now supports the new Smart UI as well as the classic UI, fully integrated into the Oracle EBS (12.1 and 12.2) UI as well as the platform capabilities outlined above. It’s not just xECM – EcoSystem products that offer specialised capabilities are also covered with EP2: Microsoft Application Governance and Archiving EP2 (AGA) is given the same capabilities as xECM for Sharepoint to support search, browse and favourite Business Workspaces from within Outlook, making it seamless to add emails to a workspace both from the desktop and web interfaces. Outlook is where collaboration happens, but it must not become a silo and the new EP2 capabilities helps solve that problem. As well as Outlook integration, AGA also includes the same Search capability to allow users to search inside the archive for content from Sharepoint. There are also some additional enhancements to simplify common tasks and configuration when archiving content from Sharepoint to the Archive Document Access and Archiving and Archive Center for SAP Solutions, Cloud Edition EP2 has enhanced support for the SAP Fiori UI with the new Business Object Browser, ensuring that all content is properly presented in context. In addition they contain more flexible layout in the SAP Business content window. Document Access has a new asynchronous report for record declaration to enable full text search of existing content. Recently licensed features of Archive Center Cloud Edition are CMIS interfaces and file share archiving and additional enhancements to the Archive Center application SAP DAM EP2 (just to remind you this is the number 1 rated DAM solution on the market, and the only solution preferred by SAP Hybris – in-case you forgot) has an all new Workflow engine to reduce the time and complexity in setting up the platform with a more lightweight workflow engine. In addition to a host of new UI features, SAP DAM is further integrated into the new Customer Experience capabilities of Hybris 6.x releases, and SAP DAM 16 EP2 exposes new widgets to ease integration into Hybris smart edit. We also gain advantage of the improvements made to the OTMM platform, on which SAP DAM is based and extended (you can read about some of these here) Document Presentment does have an EP2 release, however there are so many new capabilities within this product, it deserves a blog in it’s own right – to follow shortly Employee File Management EP2 received some minor updates and fixes. For customers who are wondering where the EP2 launch is for VIM and Business Center – don’t worry, we’ve got you covered in the EP3 launch later in the year. EP2 for the EcoSystem continues to expand on the foundation of Release 16, making xECM the platform even more the future of ECM, by bringing Content into Context, as well as making the other applications in our Portfolio even more mission critical. And keep reading our EcoSystem blogs for details on upcoming events including a South African Customer Day, Digiruption, SAP Sapphire and Enterprise World 2017.

5 Ways Content Suite 16 EP2 Drives ECM Success

Content Suite

Today, OpenText released Enhancement Pack 2 (EP2) for OpenText™ Content Suite. These enhancements build on the revolutionary functionality introduced in last year’s launch of Content Suite 16. We’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers who have been quick to adopt Content Suite 16 for its intuitive Smart UI, Connected Workspaces for repeatable collaboration, and deep integrations to leading business applications. This valuable feedback, along with validation from industry analysts such as Forrester, continues to reinforce that OpenText is on the right path in rethinking ECM. Enterprise content management is moving away from its traditional implementation as a monolithic, one-size-fits-all application toward providing a set of content services that can be used to build lightweight, discrete applications and embed ECM functionality into the applications that drive business. Let’s take a look at 5 key areas where Content Suite 16 EP2 embraces this evolving vision of ECM: 1. Transforming the user experience and improving personal productivity by providing: An expanded set of collaboration tools, including a redesigned wiki that provides users with creative ways to author and collaborate A new Content Server Mobile application with its own Smart UI-based user experience A growing set of features optimized for ease of use are now available in the Smart UI including Records Management, Physical Objects, and Brava! 2. Strengthening integration with the productivity suites users work in every day: Office 365 Groups can now be integrated with Business Workspaces — users can view and access shared calendar items, notebooks, and conversations from an associated Office 365 Group directly in a Business Workspace in Content Suite Users can now open, edit and co-author Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents using Office Online directly from Content Suite Connected Workspaces are supercharged with a new Outlook Add-in to browse Business Workspaces and store content in Content Suite Watch a demo of OpenText Content Suite EP2 3. Enhancing information flows and automating business processes by: Making it easy for users to start and participate in workflows from the Smart UI Providing more tools to tailor the Smart UI to business processes with the new Visual Data Widget — making it a snap for users to get to the info they need to make informed business decisions — and the new Carousel Widget, which presents the user with several “slides” of dynamic content in a single tile Offering a deeper level of customization with the new Content Server Smart UI SDK, which allows developers and administrators to quickly and easily tailor the new UI Strengthening the integration of ECM with lead applications via the OpenText Ecosystem products. Read this blog  to learn more about what’s new in xECM for SAP EP2, xECM for SuccessFactors EP2, xECM for Salesforce EP, xECM for SharePoint EP2, xECM for Oracle EP2 and more 4. Improving control and governance with: Automated, case-based Records Management through Connected Workspaces to apply retention to entire workspaces New ways to intuitively use metadata, including the ability to add Source File Data from content automatically and make highly sensitive information more easily identifiable by exposing Security Level, Supplemental Marking, and other security metadata directly in an actively viewed document 5. Simplifying deployment, configuration, and maintenance on-premise or in the cloud: Administration capabilities are now split between System Administration and Business Administration, a model that helps distribute workload and reduce bottlenecks, providing business groups with the flexibility to configure applications to meet their specific needs without engaging IT System Center, an all-in-one application designed to provide a unified approach to managing OpenText products, has been enhanced to simplify access to product information, deployment, and patching management and has been optimized to run Cloud Services There’s no better time to upgrade than now!

Find More Knowledge in Your Information at Enterprise World 2017

If your office is like most, it’s got millions of gigabytes full of information stashed away on computer hard drives – and maybe even file cabinets full of paper! Every single business process generates enormous data streams – not just your ERP and CRM systems, but payroll, hiring, even ordering lunch from the caterer for those regular Thursday meetings. So wouldn’t you like to find out how you can leverage the knowledge already contained in all that information? And derive more value from your existing systems of record? Come to OpenText Enterprise World this July and you’ll hear how organizations in every industry are using the cutting-edge techniques of OpenText™ Analytics to derive more value from their data – including self-service access, prediction, and modeling, and innovative techniques to get insights more easily out of unstructured data (aka the stuff you use most of the time: documents, messages, and social media). We are excited to showcase OpenText Magellan at this year’s conference and  show you the impact it will have in helping analyze massive pools of data and harness the power of your information. We’ll also preview the roadmap of new developments in the OpenText Analytics Suite. Helping Our Human Brains Navigate Big Data Thanks to cheap and abundant technology, we have so much data at our disposal – creating up to 2.5 exabytes a day by some estimates – that the sheer amount is overwhelming. In fact, it’s more than our human brains can make sense of.  “It’s difficult to make decisions, because that much data is more than we can make sense of, cognitively,” says Lalith Subramanian, VP of Engineering for Analytics at OpenText. “That’s where machine learning and smart analytics come into the picture,” he explains. “We intend to do for Big Data what earlier reporting software companies tried to do for business intelligence – simplify it and make it less daunting, so that reasonably competent people can do powerful things with Big Data.” Expect plenty of demos and use cases, including a look at our predictions from last year’s Enterprise World about who would die on Season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” and new prognostications for Season 7. Do-It-Yourself Analytics Provisioning Meanwhile, OpenText also plans to unveil enhancements to the Analytics Suite that will help give users even more power to blend and explore their own data. OpenText™ iHub , our enterprise-grade deployment server for interactive analytics at the core of the Analytics Suite, is adding the ability to let non-technical users provision their own data for analysis, rather than relying on IT, Subramanian says. They can freely blend and visualize data from multiple sources. These sources will soon include not just structured data, such as spreadsheets and prepared database files or ERP records, but unstructured data including text documents, web content, and social media streams. That’s because new algorithms to digest and make sense of language and text are getting infused into both OpenText Analytics and OpenText™ InfoFusion, an important component in the content analytics process. With OpenText™ Big Data Analytics, users will be able to apply these new, customized algorithms to the self-provisioned data of many types. At the same time, InfoFusion is adding adapters to pull content off Twitter feeds and web sites automatically. The Word on the Street One use case for this combination of OpenText InfoFusion and the Analytics Suite is to research topics live, as they’re being discussed online, Subramanian adds. “You could set it up so that it goes out as often as desired to see the latest things related to whatever person or topic you’re interested in. Let’s say OpenText Corporation – then it’ll go look for news coverage about OpenText plus the press releases we publish, plus Tweets by and about us, all aggregated together, then analyzed by source, sub-topic, emotional tone (positive, negative, or neutral), as we’ve demonstrated with our content analytics-based Election Tracker. Over time we’d add more and more (external information) sources.” Keep in mind, politicians, pundits, and merchants have been listening to “the word on the street” for generations. But that used to require armies of interns to go through all the mail, voice messages, conversations, or Letters to the Editor – and the net result was score-keeping (“yea” vs. “nay” opinions) or subjective impressions. Now these opinions, like every other aspect of the digital economy, can be recorded and analyzed by software that’s objective and tireless. And they can add up to insights that enrich your business intelligence for better decision-making. To see and hear all of this in person, don’t miss Enterprise World in Toronto, July 10-13. Click here for more information and to register.

When Search Meets AI, It Takes You Further

AI

Many think of AI as human-like robots or human-sounding voices that interact with actual humans, but the real value of artificial intelligence may derive from what it’s doing behind the scenes. For example, when unsupervised machine learning (a species of AI) is applied to enterprise content, it can develop a deeper understanding of that content and deliver insights to humans in instantly valuable ways. Content is about more than mere words; it’s about how words interrelate. By analyzing the statistical co-occurrence of terms across enterprise content from a range of sources, machine learning forms sophisticated models that can take search much further. It can identify concepts, extract phrases, suggest better queries, and pinpoint internal SMEs with relevant expertise—whether or not their written profiles even reflect it. AI-infused search helps people find what they’re looking for, even when they’re not exactly sure what that is. This is what OpenText™ Decisiv is all about. “Asia Not Asia” Imagine that you’re looking to understand more about your business operations in Asia. Your first instinct might be to search your various data stores for documents containing “Asia,” but will that term necessarily appear in the most valuable content? For that matter, how many documents will list city, state, country, and/or continent? Without machine learning, you would need an exhaustive search taxonomy to address all these variations. When a Decisiv user types “asia,” the system instantly and automatically retrieves documents that (1) contain the word Asia and/or (2) are conceptually related to Asia. This not only casts a wider net, it provides results based on a more sophisticated relevancy analysis than simple keyword searching could hope to deliver. Typing in the seemingly illogical query “asia not asia” is illustrative; it shows the user content that is conceptually related to Asia, but doesn’t contain actually contain the term Asia—displaying only the documents found by unsupervised machine learning above and beyond keyword search. Concept grouping categorizes documents according to linguistic patterns that we humans have a hard time identifying across large volumes of data. Machine learning makes such conceptual analysis automatic and highly scalable, and humans get the benefit. Further Still Concept groups can also propel a researcher to new areas of useful content. By looking at a list of the key concept groups that appear in response to a search or metadata filter (along with the document counts for those groups) researchers can see an overview of the content that’s available, spot pertinent aliases, adjust their search terms, and include or exclude concepts to meet their objectives. Concept groups are displayed with characteristic labels (top words and phrases that appear in those groups) to easily provide a sense of what each group represents, and how useful it’s likely to be for a given search. Take Decisiv Action Register for OpenText’s annual user conference, Enterprise World, in Toronto this July to learn how AI-enhanced search can help empower your digital transformation. You’ll hear from top users of Decisiv Search and our other award-winning Discovery products how they’re leveraging machine learning for more effective enterprise information management. All humans welcome.

Enterprise World 2017 Can’t Come Soon Enough for the Combined OpenText/Documentum ECM Team!

As with most things in life, one success lays the foundation for another. The first was the announced acquisition and integration of Documentum into OpenText, the next was participation at the 2017 AIIM Conference, both of which have excited and energized us as we march toward Enterprise World 2017 in July. Our participation in the annual AIIM Conference was our first “family” outing since the acquisition and it proved that OpenText and Documentum were meant to be together. Documentum is definitely home at a dedicated software company! We covered a lot of ground in Orlando; welcoming Documentum customers into the OpenText fold, engaging in more than a few enlightening conversations about ECM for today and tomorrow, and demo’ing a raft of advances across numerous product lines. Hosting the OpenText community in our own backyard (figuratively and literally…it is in Toronto!) is going to provide even more opportunities for ECM practitioners to discuss, listen, and learn about the changing face of content management. Even More ECM This year’s Enterprise World has been significantly increased to provide full value to both OpenText and Documentum customers. By popular demand, the “hands-on” demos, labs, and the ever-popular Expo showroom will be expanded. And the slate of ECM-oriented technical sessions has grown by 50% to address all the training, product update, and how-to possibilities for the range of OpenText ECM solutions. Here are a couple of can’t miss breakouts that should be on everyone’s agenda: OpenText Content Suite Advancements and Innovations: Content Suite continues to expand its capabilities, solve more business challenges, and extend into more leading applications. Join our product experts for a review of the past year’s most important advances and a look into what’s coming in the near future. Documentum is now OpenText — What’s New and What’s Next?: A dive into the forward-looking strategy for the Documentum ECM portfolio, exploring the current innovation roadmap for Documentum as well as how OpenText adds interesting technology and capability opportunities to our future roadmap. What about ECM’s future? We’ll be giving full, thought-leadership attention to a pair of the most fascinating and thought-provoking subjects in content management today: the evolution of ECM into a more service-based ecosystem and the convergence of OpenText and Documentum into a leading force in this emerging frontier. Both OpenText and Documentum customers will be able to dive into future-think keynotes, customer stories, roadmaps, development strategies, product integrations, and more that speak directly to them. Last, but most certainly not least, my favorite part of every Enterprise World — meeting and connecting with our customers and partners — is going to be even better this year, too. Welcoming a whole new group of Documentum customers to the family is going to be incredible – immerse yourselves, join the community. We’ve all got so much we can learn from each other. Enterprise World 2017 is where it starts!

Documentum and OpenText for Life Sciences – Moving Beyond FUD

documentum

Now that a couple of months have passed since the ink dried on the OpenText deal for Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD), I thought it was good time to offer my viewpoint on what this acquisition means specifically for Life Sciences. Some have questioned OpenText’s commitment to Documentum and future investment in the platform. Some have questioned the amount of investment that will be made to product/solution enhancements and innovation. However, only OpenText has the depth and breadth of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions that can deliver the future that Documentum customers deserve – while offering a whole series of synergies for existing OpenText customers. Sir, step away from the FUD… I don’t want to dwell too much on the past but I’d be sharing no great insight to say that Documentum was never a perfect strategic fit for Dell or EMC. EMC had made it explicit that continued investment in the platform might be limited. It was an open secret that the company would look to divest itself of ECD. The only question was to whom. Many industry experts had suggested that the venture capital route was most likely, but this would always have left the shadow of future disintegration and sell-offs of the Documentum solution set. OpenText offered a completely different approach. Our solution sets are complementary and together offer a path to further develop and innovate in the ECM space. Our competitors – even those that have tried to spread some FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) – would struggle to suggest that we are not a perfect fit. More importantly, the OpenText deal ensures the investment that the Documentum platform requires to fulfill customer needs. In technology solutions, as we are all acutely aware, if you’re standing still then you’re going backwards. It would have been unthinkable to let that happen to Documentum. In reality, this deal marks the end (not the continuation) of the uncertainty about Documentum’s future. Where do we go from here? The Documentum Life Sciences Solutions Suite was the pinnacle of EMC’s approach to take a solutions-based approach to delivering on customers’ pain points. I’m afraid the first thing we’ve done you may find fiendish. We’ve put the word ‘OpenText’ in front of it! The next thing we’re doing is setting out a roadmap to ensure the platform meets your needs today and into the future. We’re doing exactly the same thing with other ECD product sets – such as LEAP – so that existing Documentum customers can be reassured that our solutions will always remain a strategic investment. But, as I said, standing still is going backwards. Our belief in the Documentum platform was only part of the reason that OpenText was interested in this deal. Our strategic direction has long been to assist our customers to access the full potential of EIM. This means bringing ECM together with enhanced records management, analytics, and BPM into a single, coherent, end-to-end platform. We believe that this approach is the only way to fully release the value of information held within an enterprise and provides the foundation for Digital Transformation. Life Sciences companies can select (or maintain) either the OpenText or Documentum ECM platforms and expect to receive the same level of native integration into OpenText’s Discovery, Case Management and Customer Experience portfolios, as well as industry-specific solutions, reflecting our combined decades of experience and best practice. Bringing immediate value to customers Beneath this strategic direction, there are a number of actionable synergies that can immediately benefit both OpenText and Documentum Life Sciences customers: Extended solution portfolios – In areas such as analytics and B2B integration, existing Documentum customers can build out the capabilities of the Documentum for Life Sciences Solution Suite and leverage best-in-class OpenText solutions, such as Marketing Content Management for Life Sciences. Existing OpenText customers can benefit from ECD solutions such InfoArchive. Enterprise Application Integration – OpenText’s close relationships within its partner network introduce seamless integration with enterprise applications such as SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, and Microsoft for Documentum customers. Cloud and IaaS – The OpenText Cloud delivers the ideal platform as Life Sciences companies to transition from on-premise to Cloud-based solutions. You have the confidence that you are with one of the world leaders in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). I know it is natural to be cautious when large deals like this happen – and only time will show that what I’m saying will happen – but I’d like to think that you are as excited as I am about what this means for current and future customers. To summarize, the OpenText Documentum for Life Science Solution Suite has the investment it needs and a talented team to drive its functionality forward. Additionally, we’ll continue to help Life Sciences organizations realize the potential of EIM to deliver the real benefits of Digital Transformation. If you’d like to find out more about how this new union will affect your organization, please contact your Account Executive or click here and someone (maybe even me!) will call you. In addition, OpenText will be unveiling its strategic plans in more detail at this year’s Enterprise World, in Toronto, Canada, where we will have a full Life Sciences program designed to help maximize your investments in OpenText (including Documentum) platforms.
