Open Text Hailed as One of Top 15 Intranet Software Companies

InformationWeek Listing Ranks Open Text Among the Very Best

Chicago, IL – 1997-12-1 – Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ:OTEX) today announced that it has been named one of 15 key intranet software vendors by influential U.S. trade magazine, InformationWeek.

"This is a great coup for us, but not a surprise," said Abe Kleinfeld, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Development, Open Text. "We have already established ourselves as leaders in the knowledge management market. InformationWeek's recognition of Open Text among the industry's elite is a reflection of what our customers have known for a long time."

The listing appeared in the November 17, 1997, edition of InformationWeek (issue #657). It is part of a comprehensive round-up of intranet and extranet solutions in the magazine's Intranet/Extranet 100 Special Report.

Open Text's inclusion in the InformationWeek listing is due in large part to the success of its flagship intranet software product, Livelink Intranet. Livelink Intranet is a highly scalable, collaborative knowledge management application for intranets. Its richly featured enterprise document management, workflow, project collaboration and search engines are tightly integrated into an off-the-shelf application that is easily customized and extended to fill a broad range of information and knowledge management needs. Livelink servers are fully Web-based and open-architected to ensure very rapid deployment, requiring just a standard Web browser on users' desktops to access its full functionality. Livelink runs on Microsoft Windows NT and the leading UNIX platforms and supports most popular database management systems. In addition, a workgroup version of Livelink is bundled with Netscape SuiteSpot.
