I’m pleased to announce that OpenText has acquired Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based information integration and data management solutions.  As part of the OpenText Cloud Platform, this acquisition will extend the OpenText Business Network with a next-generation integration platform for connecting applications, data and devices.

Digital is dynamic, and the challenge it presents is application-to-application (A2A) integration across mobile, cloud, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and ERP. Global enterprises are seeking a consolidated framework to overcome the fragmentation of information applications. Liaison Technologies solves A2A integration with solutions that are secure, enterprise-ready and reusable.

The Liaison ALLOY® platform delivers a single connection point as a hosted solution with support for flexible document formats, connectivity between any two application endpoints and fast onboarding, with built-in security and compliance. With a microservices-based architecture, organizations can quickly and economically scale to unify diverse data systems across dynamic networks.

Global enterprises increasingly need to absorb, process and analyze massive volumes of data in
real time. Liaison introduces analytics to “packet inspect” A2A transactions. It captures, indexes and correlates data for real-time visibility into transaction and operational data to improve decision making and performance.

The acquisition of Liaison Technologies expands our solutions to application networks with a cloud platform that supports both SaaS and a private management solution. Based on Liaison Technologies’ proven success in key verticals, it will strengthen our leadership in healthcare, life sciences and automotive.

As an extension of our OpenText Cloud platform, Liaison solutions will equip the Intelligent and Connected Enterprise to effectively manage integration complexity, security and compliance.  Please join me in welcoming Liaison Technologies customers, partners and employees to the OpenText family.
