With the growing volume of information flowing in and out of the organization, companies are looking for solutions to extract the value of big data and apply it to their business decisions.

Barrenechea. “OpenText Big Data Analytics makes the power of real big data and advanced analytics capabilities accessible to everyday business users in the cloud. OpenText is the only vendor with integrated solutions for both advanced and embedded analytics to help global leaders understand and engage their market and customers.”
