New Report Names OpenText as a Leader in Customer Communications Management

Independent Research Firm Cites OpenText for Bringing the Enterprise Communication Hub to the Forefront

WATERLOO, Ontario, June 21, 2016 /CNW/ -- 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 Customer Communications Management (CCM) in its new report. The report, "The Forrester Wave™: Customer Communications Management, Q2 2016," finds that by managing all communications in a single suite, "OpenText brings the enterprise communication hub to the forefront."

Forrester's report assesses the state of the customer communications market and how vendors stack up against each other. The report states that the customer communications management product landscape includes enterprise-level, full-corporate solutions that can potentially support the unique requirements of all three CCM segments: interactive, on-demand, and structured output. According to the report, "This is the strongest arsenal of WCM, DAM, and CCM in the market. Strong enterprise partnerships, particularly with Oracle and SAP, continue. OpenText has an evolving set of preconfigured solutions for contracts, human resource (HR) onboarding, wealth management, technical documentation, and campaign fulfilment."

"We believe being named a leader in Forrester's CCM Wave Report further validates that OpenText Release 16 Communications Center is on target with industry needs," said Adam Howatson, Chief Marketing Officer for OpenText. "OpenText is leading the trend toward delivering an enterprise communications hub that more effectively manages all communications, both externally to customers and partners as well as internally to employees. Our integration within the OpenText EIM strategy and partner alliances provide us with the strongest position in the market to play the central role in transforming all enterprise content regardless of where it resides. OpenText continues to help our customers digitally transform to succeed in today's world."

Forrester Wave evaluations are driven by analysis of data collected from the marketplace and the experience of the firm's analysts. The Forrester Wave uses a combination of data sources to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each solution including vendor surveys, product demos and customer reference calls. The independent research firm uses primary research to develop a list of vendors that meet its criteria to be evaluated in this market and narrow the final list based on: 1) product fit; 2) customer success; and 3) Forrester client demand. The Forrester Wave offers clients a detailed analysis of vendors' products and services based on transparent criteria and an Excel spreadsheet that allows them to easily compare products to create custom vendor shortlists that best meet their specific needs.
