  • OpenText™ Magellan™ Risk Guard
  • OpenText™ Magellan™ Data Discovery, Cloud Edition

  • OpenText™ Magellan™ Text Mining
  • OpenText™ Magellan™ BI & Reporting
  • OpenText™ Magellan™ Integration Center

Magellan Risk Guard

Configure and use custom models

Each company is unique, likely with specific types of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or industry-specific information which analytical projects need to be able to accurately analyze. With CE 21.4, when you integrate a custom pre-existing classification or PII model into Risk Guard, it can now be displayed and configured by a project owner just like any of our out-of-the-box models.

Review content in context

Risk Guard has also integrated OpenText™ Intelligent Viewing, allowing you to go beyond review of raw data, and instead, view a piece of content in its native format from within Risk Guard before deciding on the necessary action to take.

Get Risk Guard as a service

In another exciting announcement, Risk Guard is now available as a service through the OpenText™ Developer Cloud. Developer Cloud is OpenText’s next-generation “Information Management as a Service” platform that delivers a wide collection of APIs and tools to create custom solutions, connect to OpenText products, and extend existing investments. This enables Risk Guard to be easily incorporated into new or existing applications and brings risk assessment projects closer to content residing in the OpenText Cloud.

Identify encrypted or protected content

To safeguard an organization from risky content, assessment projects need to analyze as wide a variety of content as possible. Risk Guard now enables files that are encrypted or secured, such as protected PDFs, to be identified within their own category. Such files may prevent automated analysis due to their security mechanism and can then inform the project owner if the documents are in unsecured locations or require additional review or remediation.

Uncover credentials stored within documents

Insider threats are a rising concern for organizations. From 2018 to 2020 the frequency of inside threat incidents has risen by 47 percent, with credential stealing representing 14 percent of all such incidents. To help businesses safeguard their organizations, Magellan Text Mining introduced a new model in CE 21.3 to identify login credentials that were left exposed within content or documents. In CE 21.4, Risk Guard has integrated that same model to deliver these capabilities within its established project analysis and out-of-the-box user interface (UI).

Magellan Data Discovery

Support for the Google Cloud

To support your organization’s cloud strategy, Magellan Data Discovery can now be deployed to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) allowing for faster analysis of data located within the cloud.

Start using Box Plot charts

We’re excited to introduce a new data visualization, the Box Plot Chart! This chart is often used by analytics experts to analyze statistical distribution of continuous variables such as age, income, total revenue, or temperature, and understand the upper and lower boundaries of the data set.

Audit data in-app

Having clean data is critical to performing analysis efficiently and quickly delivering insights. With this release, users can access a new data profiling tab to easily review discrete values, statistics, null values, and outliers, and determine if data cleaning is needed.

Magellan for Data Science

Run machine learning models as a service

Magellan machine learning models can now be exposed from a RESTful service, providing an easy way to integrate AI into existing processes and applications.

Run mock predictions on models

The Magellan™ Machine Learning Model Management Tool now allows for mock predictions to be run against a model. This means that an analytical expert can confirm that a model is generating accurate predictions without requiring code to be written or use of an external application.

Magellan Text Mining

Analyze Italian more accurately

In this release, we’ve improved the accuracy of Named Entity Recognition (NER) for Italian, the first language of approximately 65 million people around the world. NER identifies the real-world objects that we as humans easily recognize, such as names of people or organizations, geographic locations, or phone numbers.

Manage custom models through a self-service UI

In the latest iteration of our modernized UI, there is now a self-service UI for building, maintaining and testing any Named Entity Extraction dictionary, delivering a streamlined and intuitive interface to manage custom models.

Magellan BI & Reporting

View reports through an accessible web experience

The standard and interactive report viewers for Magellan BI & Reporting now include support for screen readers, keyboard navigation, alternate text for visualizations, optional titles, large-print font styles, and more. This ensures that our web-based reports provide a highly interactive and empowering experience for persons with disabilities and progresses Magellan BI & Reporting towards WCAG 2.1 AA compliance.

Magellan Integration Center

Retrieve documents in place

Magellan Integration Center now provides REST endpoints to access ECM documents. This technology powers the ability to use Intelligent Viewing capabilities to view original files without requiring the document to be moved or copied from its environment.

OpenText Output Transformation Server

Transform documents in the cloud

High-volume documents across on-prem and cloud repositories need to be stored for retention purposes, but also must be available to customers in a wide range of formats PDF. With this release, OpenText Output Transformation Server is now available as a Cloud Edition hosted in the OpenText Cloud for high-volume document transformation. Automated Output Accessibility and Document Accessibility can also be deployed to the OpenText Cloud for high-volume and ad-hoc transformation of documents into accessible formats.
