This course provides a high-level overview of the OpenText Exstream Cloud Edition platform. During this course, you will learn how Exstream provides an integrated software solution for creating, managing and delivering customer communications of any type, regardless of complexity, variability, or delivery channel, and enables you to eliminate many systems and point solutions by using the comprehensive omnichannel delivery capabilities of the platform.

In a Design and Production installation, Design Manager and Designer form the Window-based desktop design environment that is used to design and set up customer communications in the form of Design Manager applications. In this course you will focus mainly on using these Design and Production tools which offer robust capabilities for reducing complexity, streamlining business processes, and creating higher quality, more effective customer communications for delivery in high-volume, on-demand, and interactive environments using Design Manager and Designer with the Exstream production engine.

In this course you will learn how to streamline business processes with end-toend processing of documents—from content ingestion through composition to output.
