New Report Names OpenText as a Leader in Digital Asset Management for Customer Experience

Independent Research Firm Cites OpenText’s Flexible Platform, Impressive List of Customer References, and Robust Functionality

Waterloo, ON – 2014-11-26 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced that analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) has named OpenText a leader in Digital Asset Management for Customer Experience in its new report. The report, “The Forrester Wave™: Digital Asset Management For Customer Experience, Q4 2014,” finds that OpenText Media Management is among vendors that “provide broad offerings that go beyond just rich media management.”

Forrester's report takes a comprehensive look inside the Digital Asset Management (DAM) market, identifying the most significant software providers. According to the report, “Long-time player OpenText demonstrated all-around robust functionality and has supported some of the most complex enterprise deployments … OpenText offers a flexible platform with an impressive list of customer references. Accordingly, functionality is robust, with strengths in foundational capabilities: metadata, taxonomy, search, workflow, and globalization.”

The Forrester Wave uses a transparent methodology to compare players in a software, hardware or services market so that the professionals the firm serves can make well-informed decisions without spending months conducting their own research. The Forrester Wave offers two big benefits to clients: a detailed analysis of vendors' products and services based on transparent criteria and an Excel spreadsheet that allows clients to easily compare products and develop custom shortlists according to their own requirements.

"We are excited to be recognized as a leader in providing a comprehensive Customer Experience Management solution.
