OpenText Announced Deeper Integration with DocuSign


OpenText and DocuSign have announced new integrations to help OpenText enterprise customers securely create and route documents for electronic signature. OpenText has also agreed to resell DocuSign software as part of the new arrangement. Obtaining written signatures is often the most time consuming step in document processing. But, with the DocuSign integration, OpenText users now have a digital way to obtain signatures, as well as get a court-admissible audit trail to help comply with information governance needs. “By breaking the digital workflow, organizations risk losing track of the status of the document,” said Scott Harrison, senior director of business development for DocuSign. “We’re a natural fit for OpenText because we make it easier and faster for the user.” Leveraging OpenText’s large global customer base, Harrison is excited to expand DocuSign’s own reach overseas to help grow the dynamic company. DocuSign is now commonly used in the real estate, financial services, insurance, high tech, life sciences, and health care industries. Harrison can be found manning the DocuSign booth at the Enterprise World Expo Center, so stop by to learn more.

Introducing a Better Way to Work: The Next Generation of EIM


New digital competitors in every industry are taking advantage of emerging platforms, tools, and integrations to challenge incumbents. History has shown that the only way to compete is to evolve. In the digital world, that means updating—and even overhauling—business models and processes and fully embracing digital technologies. Over 2,000 innovators are currently gathered in Las Vegas at Enterprise World, and for the past three days they’ve been exploring how to enable the digital world. I’m pleased to announce that earlier today, we previewed two new, highly anticipated offerings designed to do just that. OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16 are the next generation of OpenText Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software and mark the biggest release in the history of the company. These suites have been designed to help our customers fully embrace new technology so they can take advantage of digital disruption and create a better way to work. OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16: The Next Generation of EIM OpenText Suite 16 is a set of four suites that includes ECM, BPM, CEM, and Analytics. Each suite represents a set of integrated products that have been packaged together and can be deployed on-premises, as a subscription in the OpenText Cloud, or as a managed service. OpenText Cloud 16 is a set of five cloud-based offerings that includes ECM, BPM, CEM, Business Network, and Analytics solutions, which are designed exclusively for cloud deployment, spanning solutions from native Software as a Service (SaaS) to suite configurations delivered as Managed Cloud Services. By providing the world’s best integrated EIM platform and applications, these new offerings will ensure that global organizations are able to digitally transform their operations, processes, and information to better service and interact with their customers, suppliers, and partners. Better engagement, productivity, insight, innovation, and control are core to doing better business. These themes form the foundation of our new offerings. OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16 will empower organizations to more efficiently pursue these strategic goals to drive digital transformation in the following ways: Better Engagement: Transform suppliers into partners, connect with employees and the extended enterprise, and engage with customers at every interaction in the entire customer lifecycle with the goal of maximizing the customer lifetime value. Better Productivity: Maximize the volume and quality of output from employees, teams, and ecosystems by easily accessing and using enterprise content, collaborating with internal and external teams, automating business processes and the supply chain. Better Insight: Gain greater visibility into enterprise data for a better understanding of customers, markets, and business to make smarter decisions and personalized recommendations. Better Innovation: Foster innovation with the flexibility to quickly and effectively respond to changes in market conditions, customer needs, and business requirements to achieve customer centricity and higher productivity. Better Control: Find better ways to address rising concerns about information governance, regulatory compliance, and information security and privacy without jeopardizing the ability to pursue the best customer experience and productivity goals. Leveraging the power of analytics, OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16 will help organizations to more effectively manage their information, better integrate their business network, and make smarter business decisions. In addition, we’ve enhanced our developer platform, AppWorks, so organizations can easily build innovative, tailored mobile solutions as a key part of their information management strategy. Technological innovations are impacting every aspect of our lives. They trigger a digital disruption that fundamentally changes the way we work, the way we interact with customers, and the way we approach business processes. When fully integrated into the enterprise, they create better ways to work, equipping organizations to excel in the digital world. Enterprise World attendees can visit the Enterprise Expo today and tomorrow for an exclusive preview of the next generation of EIM software. Both OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16 will be generally available in late March, 2016. For more information, read the press release.

a very special graphic

As many of you may know, our CEO Mark J. Barrenechea battled and beat Leukemia this year. As proud as we all are of him on his triumphant journey, I am even more proud to say he will be sharing his experience with all of us in a very special session “On Living,” next week at Enterprise World. The session will be held on Thursday, November 12 at 8:30am on the Main Stage. Many of us have heard Mark speak about the industry and our business over many years, but I encourage each of you to come join him to hear about his personal journey and experience. Mark has fought one of the hardest battles of his life and won, and his life has been forever changed. It has been a long road of ups and downs to get him where he is today. He truly hopes in sharing his own journey he can, in some way, help and inspire others on their journey, whatever that journey may be. While he aims to bring hope with his words, we all know this battle requires more. Throughout Mark’s talk and over the following 72 hours, we will be holding a $1 a Tweet fund raising event for Leukemia research. For every tweet sharing your story, thoughts or words of inspiration, Mark will personally contribute $1 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), up to $20,000. You donate your time and tweets and he’ll provide the funds. The donation will be split between the US and Canadian LLS organizations. Make sure to use #OnLiving, #OTEW and @MarkBarrenechea in your tweets so we can count them and raise money! And, we are not bound by the walls of Enterprise World! We need everyone’s help to spread the word for this great cause. Tell your friends and colleagues, ask them to help, let’s do this!
