Open Text Launches RedDot Partner Certification Program in North America



    The Open Text Web Solutions Group Designs Program to Increase RedDot
    Partner Delivery Capabilities to Broader Customer Base

    CHICAGO, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) Corporation (NASDAQ:   OTEX, TSX:
OTC), the largest independent provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
software and solutions, today announced the creation of a certification
program for partners of RedDot, the Open Text Web Solutions Group. This newly
revamped program enhances the current RedDot partner program certifying
individual consultants and project managers that have successfully implemented
content management solutions within the large RedDot customer base. This
initiative is part of Open Text's continued commitment to enhancing and
extending the reach and capabilities of its partners.
    In order to sell and implement RedDot solutions and achieve advanced or
premier status, partners must participate in a tiered certification process,
including developer and implementation certification for all RedDot products.
Certification is designed to educate the individuals within the partner
organization who will manage client projects. To achieve certification, an
individual must demonstrate that they have practical experience in large-scale
implementations and extensive product knowledge.
    RedDot has initiated the certification program with participation from
current partners including, at the Premier level, Enthink, MarketNet and
Purple Monkey, and at the Advanced level, Miller Systems, Indelible Media,
Oshyn, Thrillworks, POP, Beaconfire, and Infused Solutions. These partners are
providing customers with a more comprehensive content management and delivery
solution.
    "RedDot's solutions comprise exactly the tools our customers want to
enhance their Web initiatives," said Steven Saraceno, President of Purple
Monkey Studios. "We are pleased to be included in their partner program and
consider it a key to our future success."
    The certification program was developed with input from RedDot's
Professional Services group, partners, support staff and customers.
    "Leading agencies, integrators, and technology firms recognize the value
of RedDot's offering," said Detlef Kamps, General Manager of RedDot, in North
America. "RedDot's content management and delivery solutions coupled with
innovative software and Web strategy will help our partners to increase
revenues and offer customers the solutions and expertise they need to run an
efficient e-business."
