What’s new in OpenText OT2 applications for SAP Release 19.4

Release 19.4 offers new options for controlling content with SAP applications

Organizations are expecting more choices in today’s cloud-first world, supporting native cloud and hybrid deployment models. As more organizations move their workload to the cloud, the ability for rapid onboarding and time to value are becoming more and more relevant especially for common services like digitization and archiving.

Today we are announcing OpenText™ OT2 Release 19.4, which updates all three of our native cloud solutions supporting SAP. Our OT2 applications give customers a solution for human capital management requirements with OpenText™ Core for SAP® SuccessFactors®. Core Capture for SAP Solutions provides a cloud-based digitization solution for all forms of content used within SAP, and Core Archive supports control and archiving of all types of data and content into a fully cloud-native Archive.

Core for SAP SuccessFactors

Core for SAP SuccessFactors 19.4 includes 3 key new features to support HR processes and expand on the Core vision of reusing microservices. Reusing microservices means that the various applications being developed and delivered via the OT2 platform can leverage common capabilities rather than developing common functionality repeatedly.

In HR (as in many other parts of an organization) complaint control of content is mandatory for supporting standards such as GDPR and CCPA. With Core for SAP SuccessFactors 19.4, we are leveraging the capabilities offered by OpenText™ Core for Federated Compliance to provide the records management capabilities for all content stored in Core for SAP SuccessFactors.

For a lot of organizations, the ability to work in the local language is key to providing and engaging employee experience. Core for SAP SuccessFactors 19.4 marks the release of phase 1 of multilingual support providing the interface in six languages – English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch. Future releases will add additional languages including multi-byte character sets supporting Arabic and Cyrillic experiences.

One of the key features from OpenText™ Extended ECM for SAP® SuccessFactors® is the dossier view of an employee file – presenting the contents in a thumbnail preview view rather than a standard list of all documents. Users of Core for SAP SuccessFactors can now filter by options such as required (mandatory) documents, and sort by criteria such as creation date or document type.

Core Capture for SAP solutions

Core Capture for SAP solutions 19.4 adds new features for automating the capture of content into SAP. With this release, we have included templates for most common SAP Documents such as Invoices and Sales Orders as well as many more. As well as document templates, the knowledge base supporting the machine learning capabilities will automate over 80% of incoming content. And of course, in this release Core Capture for SAP Solutions supports the latest versions of Vendor Invoice Management and Business Center for SAP solutions

Core Archive for SAP Solutions

OpenText™ Core Archive for SAP Solutions (formally Archive and Document Access, Cloud Edition) was released to provide a true SAAS cloud archiving platform for all SAP and non-SAP related content. The benefits of a cloud archive are obvious – reduced IT infrastructure complexity, resource consumption and costs both ongoing and because it is cloud-based the setup costs are also reduced greatly. The 19.4 release provides support for SAP ILM for complete lifecycle and management of all SAP data and content using SAP ILM to control the retention policies and action them within Core Archive.
