The Cloud is quickly becoming a business imperative. First movers with cloud technology stand to quickly gain substantial market share, displacing incumbents with new cloud-based solutions. We want our customers to have the Cloud in their arsenal, as well the option to choose a cloud, on-premises or hybrid deployment of Enterprise Information Management (EIM). That’s why, with our recent release, we have invested deeply in our own cloud infrastructure. All OpenText products are now available in the OpenText Cloud.

OpenText Cloud 16 is a set of five cloud-based offerings that includes Content Suite, Process Suite, Experience Suite, the Business Network, and Analytics. Each of these suites has been designed exclusively for cloud deployment, spanning solutions from native Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to suite configurations delivered as Managed Cloud Services. In addition to these suites, organizations can subscribe to Core, a cloud-based, business-ready file sharing and collaboration solution, and Archive in the Cloud.

OpenText Cloud 16 gives our customers the opportunity to leverage the OpenText Cloud for Managed Services, Business Network Services, and OpenText SaaS applications. The OpenText Cloud infrastructure is a global network of over 40 data centers and points of presence. A custom-built private cloud infrastructure and custom SLAs, disaster recovery solutions, and architectural configurations work together to help lower total cost of ownership, while maximizing business agility.

With 18 billion transactions per year representing $6.5 trillion in commerce, 3.5 petabytes of stored content, 600,000 integrated trading partners, and benefiting more than 64,000 customers worldwide, the OpenText Cloud extends business to an established network of customers and partners.

Additional features in this release include seamless updates for cloud offerings on a quarterly basis, a health check on the business network to ensure maximum up-time (via State of the Grid Analytics), over 4,500 canonical maps, and next generation transportation and logistics.

The Digital Revolution is accelerating the need for digital governance, which is the topic of my next post in this series.
