Open Text to Showcase Leading Life Sciences Solutions at the Drug Information Association (DIA) Meeting in Atlanta



    Solutions Built to Address Specific Market Needs; Support Essential
    Critical Processes for the Compliant Management of All Paper and
    Electronic Records and Documents

    CHICAGO, June 11 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) Corporation (NASDAQ:   OTEX,
TSX: OTC), the largest independent provider of enterprise content management
(ECM) software and solutions, today announced that it will showcase its
industry-leading solutions for pharmaceutical and life sciences companies at
the 2007 Drug Information Association (DIA) Meeting to be held in Atlanta,
Georgia, June 17 - 21 at the Georgia World Congress Center. Open Text will
demonstrate its industry specific applications at booth No. 115.
    Open Text is a leader in providing enterprise content management
solutions to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, contract research
organizations and medical device manufacturers. Open Text's industry specific
applications for life sciences include solutions for regulatory content and
submissions management, quality management, and clinical trials. Other
business related applications Open Text is helping pharmaceutical and
biotechnology organizations with include: internal controls, contract
management and litigation support, email management, records management, Web
content management, and ERP/CRM archiving.

    
    At booth No. 115, Open Text will showcase the following solutions:

    -   Regulated Documents for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007,
        which builds on Open Text's experience from its successful Livelink
        ECM - Regulated Documents solution, first introduced to life sciences
        companies in 2002. The solution extends Open Text's extensive and
        well-proven life sciences domain knowledge to a new ECM platform. The
        solution will allow companies to use 2007 Microsoft Office
        applications to manage, author, review and approve content in a
        controlled environment that is compliant with specific U.S. Food and
        Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines, such as the 21 CFR Part 11
        regulations.

    -   Livelink ECM - Quality Management System, which provides a fully
        integrated solution that complies with the electronic records
        provisions of the FDA's 21 CFR Part 11, while addressing the needs
        for Pharmaceutical Best Practice (21 CFR 210 and 211), Biological
        Best Practice (21 CFR 600-680) and Medical Device Best Practice
        (21 CFR 820). The system is a flexible and expandable solution that
        integrates the key processes required for life sciences
        organizations, including Audit, Training, and Regulated Document
        Management into an enterprise-level solution.

    -   Livelink ECM - Collaborative Submissions, which is designed to help
        companies manage the assembly, review, approval and release of large
        document submissions that are made to government regulatory bodies
        responsible for drugs, biologics and related products. The
        comprehensive solution drastically reduces time to market by enabling
        companies to prepare and make submissions in the industry's eCTD
        (Electronic Common Technical Document) format. eCTD submissions can
        contain thousands of documents which have to be carefully managed
        through their respective lifecycles. Each submission in turn is part
        of an overall product application that requires updates, amendments
        and follow-on submissions.
    

    "Life sciences companies have some of the most complex and highly
regulated document processes in use today, so they need sophisticated ECM
solutions," said Brett Shellhammer, Vice President of Business Solutions for
Open Text. "Our industry specific solutions, best practices, and strong
network of partners who develop, validate and deliver Open Text based
solutions, sets us apart from other software providers. We look forward to
showcasing our extensive portfolio at the DIA Meeting in Atlanta."
