NEW YORK, May 12 /CNW/ - Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), the preeminent provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, today announced full support across the Open Text ECM Suite for Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, allowing customers to confidently migrate to the latest platform and take full advantage of Open Text's rich content management expertise.
The Open Text announcement of comprehensive support for Office 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 was made in conjunction with Microsoft's U.S. Launch of The Next Wave of Productivity event here in New York City.
Today's announcement extends Open Text's ongoing corporate strategy to embrace Microsoft Office and SharePoint as a familiar user interface to access and use the Open Text core infrastructure and platform for advanced ECM solutions. Open Text and Microsoft have been working closely together on this strategy since 2005 as evidenced by the partner of the year awards Open Text has received, and inclusion of Open Text in Microsoft Technology Centers worldwide as a featured provider of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) solutions: http://www.opentext.com/2/global/press-release-details.html?id=2348.
"With Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010, Microsoft has continued to boost user productivity, further ensuring that companies will want to center their business applications on the Microsoft user interface, allowing easy ways to access Open Text's advanced ECM platform," said Brian Donaldson, Vice President, Microsoft Solutions and Ecosystem at Open Text. "We help make that possible by allowing decision makers and information workers to work in their comfortable Microsoft environment while giving them access to all enterprise content from all sources including social networking, Web and digital media."
Open Text products for Microsoft help companies address the complexity of the ever-growing volume of electronic information, increase productivity, stimulate innovation, enable business agility, and ensure compliance and content security. Open Text offers one of the industry's widest range of solutions that extend Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010 including: integrated records management and archiving, content lifecycle management, email management, e-discovery and litigation readiness, enhanced web content management for SharePoint 2010, SAP integration, document capture and fax solutions, a development framework for case management applications and specialized vertical-market solutions.
"The combination of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and the Open Text ECM Suite provide new ways for people to work better together, meet regulatory requirements and manage content enterprise wide," said Ryan Duguid, Senior Product Manager on the Enterprise Content Management Team at Microsoft Corp. "Open Text complements SharePoint Server 2010, extending the out of box ECM capabilities with ECM solutions targeting a range of vertical industries and specialized requirements such as DoD certification."
The releases of Open Text products with Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 support will leverage the latest capabilities and user interface refinements in the Microsoft platform. Here are some highlights:
- Open Text Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) Services and Case
Management Framework for SharePoint Server 2010. Using CLM Services
customers can centralize control over enterprise content and across
multiple SharePoint repositories. The Case Management Framework
enables customers to control and structure the rollout of SharePoint
sites. Thanks to the extensibility of SharePoint Server 2010,
developers will be able to leverage the foundation of the Case
Management Framework to implement business solutions that build on
Open Text's long experience with compliance and records management.
- Open Text's document management offering eDOCS DM taps Microsoft
Office 2010 developer tools to boost security, improve overall
robustness of the solution and implement functions directly into
Office 2010 menus, ribbons and the new Backstage Views interface.
- The latest release of Open Text Email Archiving for Microsoft Exchange
will take full advantage of the new Outlook 2010 interface, for
example, exposing message classification capabilities directly within
the ribbon in Outlook 2010. It will also provide the ability to
harvest and archive email out of the archive mailbox, a new capability
introduced in Exchange 2010 that allows IT managers to provide each
user with an archive mailbox alongside their active mailbox. Open Text
can now extract content out of that archive mailbox and manage it in
