Europe’s Largest Information Management Conference Highlights Key Innovations in AI, Cloud, Security and Privacy

Waterloo, ON – 2019-02-28 –OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced this year’s inaugural Enterprise World Europe will bring together business leaders from across Europe to discuss pressing issues for intelligent and connected enterprises. Hosted in the center of Vienna, Austria, Enterprise World Europe will deliver inspirational keynotes, industry-relevant breakout sessions and vibrant opportunities for networking.

Enterprise World Europe will take place March 12-14, 2019 at the Austria Center in Vienna.

“All industries are transforming through digital, AI and extreme connectivity,” said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText CEO and CTO. “OpenText Enterprise World Europe will bring together top companies and experts in Enterprise Information Management discussing how to leverage technology and disruptive techniques to compete and win in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

Barrenechea continued, “Enterprises are facing intense market forces which are changing the way they work, deploy technology and conduct business. Workforces are becoming more flexible and nomadic, with employees requiring new agile experiences from business environments. At the same time IT infrastructures are shifting to the cloud, with corporate technology moving to flexible and outsourced deployment models. These trends are taking place on the back drop of information privacy, security and regulatory changes.”
