OpenText Enhances ECM Functionality and Deepens EIM Offering with Acquisition of Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division, including Documentum

I am pleased to announce that we have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD), including Documentum.  This agreement marks another significant milestone in our journey to redefine enterprise software and represents one of the most important Enterprise Content Management (ECM) acquisitions in the history of the company.

The agreement includes the acquisition of Dell EMC’s ECD offerings from the Documentum, InfoArchive, and LEAP product families. When combined with existing OpenText products, these offerings will enable customers to manage content across the enterprise securely and compliantly, decommission legacy apps to make information more available for complete analysis and insight, and create new ways to work across any device. In keeping with our flexible deployment options, they will be available as on-premises, cloud, or hybrid architectures.

At OpenText, we are committed to providing our customers with complete automation across the entire EIM flow, from Engagement to Insight. The addition of these offerings strengthen key components of our vision—from Capture to Archive—and adds to the core OpenText product portfolio with capabilities in information life cycle management, ECM, archiving, and collaboration. Furthermore, it accelerates our reach into key verticals, including healthcare, life sciences, and public sector, while adding to our strong presence in financial services, energy, and engineering.

ECD’s more than 25 years of experience in ECM both strengthens our position and expands the OpenText EIM offering with domain expertise, increased channel presence, and deep global customer relationships. The addition of ECD will make OpenText the partner of choice for organizations as they seek to harness the power of enterprise information to transform their business.

I look forward to welcoming ECD customers, partners, and employees to the OpenText family when the transaction closes.
