Agenda

Join us for a full morning program

TimeEvent
8:00 am Registration
9:00 am-12:00 pm Morning program includes:
  • OpenText Cloud keynote  

    Effective Enterprise Information Management is key to unlocking the Information Advantage that businesses need to compete and win in a digitally transformed economy. An effective enterprise information management strategy considers the many deployment options available for enabling knowledge, integration, supply chain and information exchange workers to access and act on business information – off-cloud, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid – and adopts the one that will maximize the advantage that your organization’s EIM content management and data integration and exchange (here or below) investment will deliver.

    Understanding where your business is today in its EIM journey and the destination that’s right for you is key to defining an information management strategy that will succeed in a fast-evolving digital landscape. For some enterprises, the best path is to migrate existing EIM workloads—such as content management, data integration, and information exchange—to a more flexible and efficient cloud platform. For businesses already in the cloud, leveraging supply chain communities and B2B networks, companies can unlock even more value by shifting other forms of data integration and management to the cloud. Still others may decide that an off-cloud strategy delivers the best outcome. Whatever the path you choose and the destination you seek for your business, OpenText has the resources, expertise and experience to help you reach it.

    The keynote and IDC analyst presentations will be followed by an engaging panel discussion featuring EIM customers who are traveling their own path to the cloud as well as OpenText subject matter experts.

  • IDC analyst keynote: Migrating workloads to the cloud - what to move and how
  • Q&A panel featuring IDC, OpenText, customer speaker
12:00 pm-1:00 pm Lunch
1:00 pm Pre-booked cloud assessment meetings
  • *times may vary by location

Join these customers on the journey to the cloud
