WATERLOO, ON – 2015-10-15 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced its 2015 Enterprise World conference. The annual event, now in its seventeenth year, will be held in Las Vegas Nevada at the MGM Grand from November 8-13, 2015.

Digital changes everything and is the most disruptive force our society has ever encountered. It has turned information into a new valuable corporate asset, enabled global commerce, automated complex processes and provided insight on volumes of data that were previously beyond the capacity to analyze. Digital will disrupt half of today’s companies over the next five years. Now, more than ever, new strategies, tools and best practices are needed to extract and apply the value of information for long-term competitiveness. Enterprise World brings together developers, partners, industry experts and executive leaders with innovative solutions and with great peer networking opportunities.

“Digitalization is the largest opportunity for our customers, and EIM solutions are the best way to unlock that potential. Digital enables a better way to work,” said OpenText CEO Mark J. Barrenechea. “At Enterprise World 2015, we plan on unveiling our next generation solutions including: Project Blue Carbon: OpenText EIM Cloud 16 and Suite 16, the OpenText Business to Business Network and OpenText Big Data Analytics. It will be our largest and most important event in the history of the company.”
