OpenText Magellan—The Next Generation of Cognitive

OpenText is shaping the future of information with Magellan, our next-generation cognitive platform.

Magellan integrates visualization, voice, video, search, text, natural language processing, and semantic and numeric engines. It is cognitive democratized because it is easy to program, affordable and highly accessible, giving our customers access to Apache Spark’s more than 1,000 open algorithms developed by some of the greatest minds in the world.

Introducing Magellan at Enterprise World

Introducing Magellan at Enterprise World

Magellan leverages Apache Spark for open algorithms, and machine learning to help our customers harness the value of their information. It is an open platform built on open standards like HTML5, Java, SQL, and Hadoop. Developers will be able to build on this platform to expand its rich ecosystem. Because it is built on open standards, Magellan is embeddable, offering our customers access to a wealth of well-studied and well-written algorithms.

The combination of Spark’s algorithms with OpenText EIM will give our customers the ability to apply predictive analytics to EIM: from interactive analytics and business intelligence in finance to high performance batch computing for genomics research to connecting millions of homes to real-time stream processing gas meters.

The evolution of EIM has moved from governing information to building apps on this information and finally, to its future state, which is to unlock data to find answers. We laid the foundation of the future with OpenText Release 16—the most comprehensive digital platform in the market today. Magellan is the promise of EIM fulfilled.

OpenText can now fully automate Engagement to Insight: Engagement, Capture, Content, Process, Collaboration, Discover, Exchange, and Insight. This is as important as when Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) could automate Campaign to Cash. From Engagement to Insight, customers will be able to answer their most difficult business questions by unleashing the value of their data with Magellan.

In the same way that Ferdinand Magellan unlocked the world by circumnavigating it, OpenText Magellan unlocks the potential for the enterprise.

We expect to deliver Magellan in the second half of 2017.
