Why Attend Enterprise World? One Word – Discovery

The leaves are falling, the days are getting shorter, and here in Canada, the temperature is dropping precipitously. That means that OpenText Enterprise World is on its way – as is the opportunity to enjoy some warmer weather in Florida. Enterprise World kicks off on November 17th and wraps up on the 21st.

Enterprise World is not just an opportunity enjoy a warm climate, it is also the best opportunity to learn about the OpenText solutions that you already have, about the new things we are doing in Enterprise Information Management – not to mention network and have fun.

Current and prospective customers will find a wide variety of ways to learn about OpenText Discovery applications, their use cases and customer successes. Discovery applications use search and content analytics to solve problems in Information Governance and Web Experience Management. We have also been working hard at OpenText to create and document API’s and reusable libraries that make sure that developing and maintaining your own applications can be fast and inexpensive.

A few places to learn more about Discovery inlcude:

Techie Tuesday

Techie Tuesday is the day we’ve set aside to host deep dive discussions on how to integrate, configure and customize OpenText solutions. It’s a rare opportunity to meet with OpenText technologists to get the information you need to get the most out of your organization’s OpenText products. The Discovery track will have three sessions. Two technical sessions around InfoFusion cover creating InfoFusion Applications and using InfoFusion for content migration. The third session is for Web Site developers and Web Site managers. It covers developing effective and compelling site search to improve SEO and content find-ability. These are practical sessions led by OpenText engineers, Product Managers and Consultants responsible for creating and deploying these products. A complete list of Discovery technical sessions can be found here.

Break-Out Sessions

There are a wide variety of Breakout sessions targeted at Information Management professionals. These sessions will highlight the variety of search and content analytics solutions that make up Discovery. They will also provide insight into the problems we are trying to solve and how we address them. Some of the big-picture issues are outlined in the below SlideShare. A complete list of Discovery break-outs can be found here.


The keynote presentations given by OpenText executives are a great way to understand where OpenText is headed from a strategic and product perspective.

They are also full of stories about our customers, and how they have been successful in Enterprise Information Management. They are also entertaining and thought provoking. I’m pretty sure William Shatner will be both, and more.


Year after year, we hear the same thing. The most valued aspect of Enterprise World is the ability to network, chat and bend the ear of specialists and industry experts in OpenText and from amongst your peers in the wide variety of OpenText customers. This year will be no different. Supporting Discovery and ECM, you will find Product Managers, software developers, consultants, partners, implementers, computational linguists, Information Governance experts and much, much more.

We are busy preparing the biggest and best Enterprise World for our 15th anniversary. We look forward to welcoming you, educating you, entertaining you, and most importantly, listening to you. If you haven’t already, please register soon.
