Announcing OpenText Content Suite: Accelerating Time to Governance

Walking out of the keynote presentations at Enterprise World this morning the air was buzzing after OpenText CEO, Mark J. Barrenechea unveiled the details of the much anticipated OpenText product releases. After months of preparation by teams throughout OpenText,
Mark shared details of 5 new Enterprise Information Management product suites, new innovations in our Tempo family of products and AppWorks,
our new common API and developer platform across all of the OpenText product suites. On behalf of the entire enterprise content management team, it’s truly my pleasure to announce OpenText Content Suite, a comprehensive, integrated suite of ECM products that accelerate time to information governance.

OpenText Content Suite,
the foundation for OpenText’s Enterprise Information Management (EIM) offerings, is a comprehensive Enterprise Content Management platform with applications and add-ons designed to manage the flow of information from capture through archiving and disposition. OpenText Content Suite ensures agile information governance and reduces risk while allowing organizations to focus on using information to drive strategic growth and innovation.

Capture more content; govern all your enterprise information—no matter the source!

Agility is the key to addressing the challenges related to the explosive growth of business information in an increasingly complex and dynamic regulatory landscape and the rapid growth of business information. OpenText Content Suite supports an agile strategy by building information governance into the applications users work in every day to manage content throughout its lifecycle. Content becomes smarter as it travels throughout the organization, via collaboration and processing, its value enhanced with rich metadata allowing for greater control of security, visibility, findability, mobility, and validity.

What’s New in OpenText Content Suite 10.5

The OpenText Content Suite is a comprehensive Enterprise Content Management Platform with applications and add-ons to manage the flow of information from capture through archiving and disposition.

Content Suite 10.5 is Dependable

  • Simple to administer. Flexible to deploy. Bulletproof Information Governance you can depend on for the evolving needs of your enterprise.

Information Governance needs are evolving to include new content types and increasing demand for deployment and management of content in the cloud.

Based on OpenText’s proven Archive Server platform, two new visionary products were announced:

  • OpenText Email Archive for Google Apps
  • OpenText Cloud Archive

These offerings expand our footprint and extend Information Governance further into the Cloud supporting governance of popular Google and O365 cloud-based mail, file systems and any CMIS content type.

Content Suite 10.5 is Extendable

  • Easier, faster,
    standardized and documented development tools make rapid application creation and system integration infinitely easier.

This release contains a number of features that make life easier and simpler for the developer, allowing them to work in standard development environments that do not require special programming skills. A common, documented, standard layer of development tools including a new REST API based on AppWorks and a contemporary IDE based on Eclipse, ensure developers can simply and easily develop applications that integrate with and extend the Content Suite platform.

Ease of use coupled with the ability to modify the experience completely through UI widgets and visual access tools such as ActiveView further allow organizations to build information governance into business processes.

Content Suite 10.5 is Adaptable

  • Adapts user experience to business strategy, improving adoption, efficiency, and impact

Adoption is key to a successful ECM deployment. Over 600 customer and business driven features have been made in the Content Suite. Key areas of focus include a more visual UI with document thumbnails and dashboards, ease of use and administration with features like HTML5 drag and drop and mobility with ECM Everywhere and Tempo.
