In 1996, OpenText pioneered web-based collaboration and document management, introducing Livelink. Over the coming years, the Livelink portfolio grew with new capabilities to electronically control the lifecycle of what was referred to as "unstructured content".
As new technologies, such as records management, imaging and archiving, a new market segment, referred to as Enterprise Content Management (ECM), evolved. During this time, OpenText introduced Livelink ECM - Content Lifecycle Management, the first ECM platform to simplify the delivery of the solutions organizations needed to digitize paper processes. Continuously adding to this bundle, the portfolio was rebranded as OpenText Content Suite in 2012.
