Muhi Majzoub reveals more details on OpenText’s next-generation hybrid cloud platform, OT2, more Magellan integration and other innovations customers can expect.
Day two of Enterprise World 2018 kicked off with Muhi Majzoub, EVP, Engineering and Cloud Services, OpenText™, giving his traditional roundup of highlights from the past year. Muhi told more than 4000 delegates that since last year’s conference OpenText has delivered more than 1000 product enhancements across its platforms, solutions and applications, put out new releases of our Documentum product family, and delivered v2 of analytics platform Magellan™.
Looking forward, there was more detail on day one’s big announcement of OpenText’s next-generation hybrid cloud platform, OT2. Muhi outlined the OT2 blueprint for the future across platform, services and applications. He told delegates: “OT2 runs in the OpenText cloud, it runs on modern platforms, microservices-enabled, powered by great components that are familiar to our customers and partners. I’m not only excited about the opportunity we have for you to build new IP on top of OT2, but also for OpenText to build many more applications.”
There will be quarterly releases of more microservices and applications, including the two vertical-specific applications that were announced yesterday for the life sciences and legal sectors. Delegates were also given a demo of life sciences application OpenText Quality.
In addition to insights from OpenText customer County of Los Angeles, and from OpenText partner Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Muhi also outlined a roadmap of some of the releases and innovations customers have coming down the line. Delegates were told to expect a lot of Magellan integration across all OpenText products. Meanwhile, EP5 for Release 16, which is due later in the year, will include xECM for Documentum and innovations for the experience suite and Business Network.
Muhi closed his keynote with a demo of OpenText Core and revealed that the next quarterly release will give customers the ability to build applications and workflows, then associate tasks with them.
