Ahead of OpenText Enterprise World, we caught up with Patty Nagle, OpenText SVP & CMO to get the low-down on what to expect next month in Toronto.
Can you give us some highlights on what to expect at this year’s OpenText Enterprise World?
It’s hard to believe that OpenText Enterprise World 2019 is almost here. After amazing events in Europe and Asia, we’re heading back to Toronto from July 9-11 – and it’s going to be epic!
Enterprise World 2019 is the perfect place to connect with peers, partners and industry experts; to learn how to harness the power of information, and to discover how the Information Advantage can super-charge your business.
I’m incredibly excited about the amazing lineup of keynote speakers this year. Alongside Mark Barrenechea (OpenText CEO and CTO) and Muhi Majzoub (OpenText EVP Engineering), we also have the privilege to welcome web legend Tim Berners-Lee, and humanitarian and award-winning musician Peter Gabriel to the line-up.
We are also introducing new and updated programs that focus on certification, learning, solution roadmaps and product demonstrations. And we’ll be unveiling some incredible product and partner announcements live on-stage throughout the event.
We are hearing more and more about “the Information Advantage” – any spoilers you can share ahead of Enterprise World?
For all organizations, digital transformation is fundamental to improving the customer experience, driving operational efficiency and enabling entirely new business models. At the heart of this transformation is information – how to manage it, how to secure it and how to maximize it for the benefit of your business and your customers.
Unlocking the Information Advantage will be a central theme at Enterprise World. Keynotes from Mark Barrenechea and Muhi Majzoub will focus on our vision for enabling the Information Advantage; and on how OpenText continues to innovate on the world’s most complete and integrated EIM portfolio.
There is lots of talk about the negative uses of information in the world today, can you offer any thoughts on how information can be used for the good?
At OpenText, we have a core belief that information can – and must – be used for the good, and at Enterprise World we will be tackling that issue head-on.
We believe that information and technology can be a positive force in the world. Whether it is open government, sustainable development, regulatory compliance or any number of other initiatives, we know that most organizations strive to use “information for the good.”
At Enterprise World we’re honored to host a major session focused solely on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and to showcase examples of OpenText customers using “information for the good”. By being accountable and considering the impact on all aspects of society, corporations can help create a sustainable future.
For a taster, take a look at the key takeaways from the CSR session from Enterprise World Europe.
Partners have always been an important element of Enterprise World, what can they expect this year?
Our partner community plays a critical role in our success, and we’re proud to work with a global network of partners who help customers tackle complex business problems and enable the Information Advantage.
For Enterprise World attendees, our Enterprise Expo is the place to engage with the entire OpenText partner community. With over 100 partners showcasing their latest EIM focused solutions and expertise, it really is an “all you can eat” opportunity to understand and see the incredible innovation and leadership taking place in the industry today.
For our partners – as well as the opportunity to meet one-to-one with over 2000 Enterprise World attendees – we will be hosting our annual Partner Summit on July 8.
The OpenText Partner Summit is a full day event dedicated to giving partners detailed insight into our vision, strategy and customer success, alongside product roadmap and innovation sessions. It’s going to be a fantastic day.
Any final words?
Enterprise World is going to be an incredible event and I can’t wait to meet with as many customers as possible in Toronto.
I’m in…are you?
