  • With more than 600 websites and more than 200,000 web pages, visitors had difficulty finding the information they were looking for.
  • Information wasn’t where the visitor expected it to be and it was written in different terms and terminology.
  • Editors workflows needed to be optimized using automated processes.



  • Website visitors can easily navigate through large quantities of information based on its meaning, therefore increasing the effectiveness of web marketing and online searches.
  • Editors can complete their tasks more rapidly using automated processes.
  • SEO measures and individual topic pages optimize searchability by search engines and web directories. 
  • OpenText Content Analytics intelligently extracts content based on its semantic meaning (persons, organizations, locations, etc.), basic tone and context.
