OpenText Core Offers Alternative to Consumer Clouds with an Enterprise-Ready Solution for Simple, Secure and Smart Corporate Information Management in the Cloud

Orlando, Fla – 2014-11-12 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced OpenText Core, a cloud- based multi-tenant SAAS offering for Information Management. OpenText Core will allow for the simple, secure and smart exchange of corporate documents and collaborative information management.

“Our customers need hybrid deployments, on-premises and in the cloud, to create a balanced workload that meets all their data sovereignty requirements while leveraging the power of the cloud,” said Mark J. Barrenechea, president and chief executive officer of OpenText. “Enterprises have different requirements for scale, security, performance, in country data-zones and governance than consumers. With OpenText Core, we are delivering a product leveraging our 20 years of Enterprise Information Management experience that is going to change how the world’s largest companies and governments run.”

To stop the risk associated with the spread of consumer-grade file sharing and content proliferation on laptops, mobile devices and unmanaged public clouds, IT departments are feeling mounting pressure to find solutions that meet the needs and expectations of users while minimizing the exposure to security risks for the organization. As organizations transform their business to the digital-first world and move to the cloud, they require applications that balance user experience and productivity with enterprise security and controls. OpenText Core is built specifically for the digital enterprise. It combines the benefits of a secure cloud deployment with a simplified user experience across any device, whether tablet, phone or browser, to allow users to get files fast and easily.

  • Social Collaboration—Share documents among teams with internal and external permission controls. As with many social and cloud platforms, users have the ability to “like” and leave comments on posts.
  • Activity Feeds—Users have a dashboard of recent activity to keep track of their items as well as get a full view of their projects.
  • Live Editing—The collaborative file viewer allows users to review files without the need to save copies locally on devices. Files can be edited within the Core experience and changes are reflected instantly, without having to wait for synchronization to a desktop location.
