It’s been one year now since we announced our acquisition of Documentum, InfoArchive, Captiva, and LEAP SaaS Platform and Applications.
LEAP had truly found a home as it was the perfect fit into the OpenText™ Cloud Services strategy. Having been in development for almost 2 years, it came fully equipped with an extensive list of microservices and several fit for purpose apps already developed.
OpenText had also been in development of a SaaS product – OpenText™ Core which extends the value and functionality of existing ECM investments by adding cloud native sharing and collaboration capability.
Core fits well with the LEAP platform strategy by utilizing common services such as self-provisioning, workflow and others. Other services have also been utilized by existing OpenText products making it a great complement to its extensive set of Enterprise solutions. In the future we will see more cross pollination with new services being added to the platform and more products utilizing the growing list of services. OpenText will continue the development of built for purpose apps with a tactical focus on customer use cases and expanding the SaaS Cloud Platform.
LEAP and OpenText were the perfect match as evidence in a major Analyst report where the quote “The rise of a new market leader, OpenText, unseating IBM because of its acquisition of Dell EMC’s ECD products (Documentum, Leap and InfoArchive)”.
