WATERLOO, ON, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC),
the global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced a significant expansion of the OpenText ECM Suite for SAP® Solutions in support of SAP's latest technologies, including the SAP HANA
platform, and cloud and mobility solutions.
The OpenText ECM Suite for SAP Solutions is expected to extend the value
of SAP Business Suite software as an end-to-end solution, addressing
strategy to execution and helping enable business transformation.
Leveraging the power of SAP HANA, the OpenText ECM Suite for SAP
Solutions is designed to enable SAP customers to use common enterprise
architecture to organize and control all of their digital information.
As further evidence of the strategic alignment between the companies,
OpenText is the first SAP software solution and technology partner to
offer solutions that have been fully tested and confirmed by SAP to be
integrated with SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. Using these
solutions together with SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA, it is
anticipated that customers can now reap the benefits of a faster,
smarter and simpler real-time platform for their business.
Additionally, OpenText solutions resold by SAP as the SAP Digital Asset
Management and the SAP Document Presentment applications by OpenText
are available with the SAP 360 Customer solution.
