OpenText Appoints Kamran Kheirolomoom to Lead its BPM Business

Brings Market Experience to Lead the Company's BPM and Dynamic Case Management Plans

WATERLOO, ON, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC) announced today that it has named Kamran Kheirolomoom as Senior Vice President and General Manager of its BPM business, bringing recognized leadership and expertise in BPM and case management technologies.

Kheirolomoom, who joins the company from Serena Software, will be responsible for driving OpenText's aggressive strategy in BPM and dynamic case management solutions.  OpenText has moved quickly this year to build a leading portfolio of BPM solutions, acquiring Metastorm in February and Global360 in July.  The combination brings complementary capabilities, and accelerates the company's investment in leading content and process solutions.  According to Gartner, the BPM market was $1.9 billion in 2009, growing 15 percent that year.

"Kamran brings the BPM industry experience and track record of success that's important to our customers and partners," said John Shackleton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Open Text. "He's joining us at just the right time to drive our go-forward strategy for BPM, bringing strong leadership, managerial and entrepreneurial skills to lead the team."

Kheirolomoom has over twenty five years of experience in the software and services industry with experience founding, transforming, and building successful companies. He has managed and led several early-stage start-ups and mid-stage enterprise software companies through various stages of growth and execution, and has led four BPM companies in his career, including one which was a precursor of Global360. At Serena Software, Kheirolomoom led the company's BPM business.

"OpenText has a strong vision for the future of content, process and case management technologies," said Kheirolomoom.  "There are great opportunities for OpenText's BPM business, given the need among the large, global customers OpenText serves. I look forward to working with the BPM team to create powerful new solutions for customers, and a winning strategy that will help us succeed in the marketplace."
