OpenText Announces OEM Partner Program

Enhanced OEM Partner Program Enables Integration of Leading EIM Solutions with Third Party Technology

Waterloo, ON – 2016-7-11 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced the extension of the company’s Global Partner Program to allow ISVs to embed OpenText’s industry leading technology and capabilities directly into third party applications and solutions, minimizing development time and cost, and helping to drive adoption of core digital technologies.

The OpenText OEM Partner Program, along with OpenText’s broad portfolio of EIM products and solutions, allows partner companies to focus valuable development resources on core strengths and industry expertise, removing the requirement to allocate resources to non-core solution development, reducing time-to-market and enabling the delivery of higher quality solutions into the marketplace. Part of OpenText’s Global Partner Program, the OEM program enables software developers and solution providers to embed industry leading EIM technology into existing processes, solutions or applications, without the requirement to build the capabilities independently.

Adam Howatson, CMO at OpenText, commented, “In the Digital World speed and information are paramount. As a leader in the EIM market, OpenText is uniquely placed to bring its core technologies and platforms to a broader set of partners, enabling them to enhance their own offerings and subsequent value to the client.”

Ole Rasmussen, Global Director of Product Development at Infor, said, “Our long term partnership with OpenText, and utilizing its market leading software, has allowed us to deliver Infor M3 based industry solutions that directly meet our customers specific needs. Knowing we have access to the OpenText software and knowledge enable us to focus our development efforts on key industry capabilities.”

Providing partners with the ability to “buy vs. build” enables these organizations to develop and grow the business without incurring the expense of developing information management functionality into their solutions. The OpenText OEM Partner Program enables partner organizations to pursue a strategy of differentiation, while providing customers with the combined functionality of best of breed technology and industry expertise, allowing the partner to drive value and innovation for the end user.

Howatson continued: “Managing the flow, exchange and storage of information will be critical to the success of every organization irrespective of size in the digital world. By enabling our OEM partners to embed industry leading digital technology into their solutions, we can shorten the time to market and time to customer success.”

The OpenText OEM Partner Program is open to companies that develop software and hardware solutions, enabling the partner to provide value-adding solutions to customers across all markets and vertical segments. For more information about OpenText’s Global Partner Program, please visit:
