As the new year begins, it’s a great time to look ahead. If your 2024 plans include finding new ways to drive your organization forward, we hope you’ll look no further than your friendly neighborhood software giant to deliver Canadian-born innovation and a partnership that goes the distance.

But before looking forward, let’s take a moment to reflect on where we come from. A company’s character and heritage matter, especially when it comes to choosing a vendor to partner with for the long run. As a business born in Canada and raised at the University of Waterloo, OpenText™ embodies the values that define us as Canadians–diversity, passion, and humility. Those values impact everything we do and help us balance our love for innovation with responsible, ethical business practices.

When you choose OpenText software you’re investing in a relationship that respects your values, understands your objectives, and is committed to propelling your business towards its strategic goals.

Canadian companies trust OpenText

Just ask any of the dozens of Canadian organizations–ranging from public-sector agencies to financial services firms to pharmaceutical companies–that trust us to provide them with the innovation they need to move forward. The Government of Canada, for example, uses our analytics and AI tools to gain insights needed to better serve citizens. And RBC, one of the largest banks in the world based on market cap, creates and manages complex financing deals efficiently with our financial hub.
