OpenText Obtains DoD 5015.02-STD Certification for ECM Suite and Microsoft SharePoint 2010

Continues Leadership in Delivering Solutions that Help Customers Meet Information Governance and Compliance Requirements

WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC) today announced that components of the OpenText ECM Suite 2010 together with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 have met U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) 5015.02-STD certification requirements for records management, encompassing unstructured content including physical, electronic and email records.

Many government agencies and private enterprises around the world look to DoD certification as a benchmark requirement for records management software deployments. Microsoft SharePoint 2010 satisfies these requirements when used in conjunction with certified partner solutions such as OpenText Application Governance and Archiving for SharePoint 2010, a component of OpenText ECM Suite 2010. OpenText is the first major ECM provider to obtain DoD 5015.02-STD certification for SharePoint 2010.

This certification builds on OpenText's leadership in helping customers use SharePoint 2010 for mission-critical applications. It also continues the company's success in delivering DoD-certified records management solutions: OpenText has certified against all versions of the DoD standard since its inception more than a decade ago and has successfully completed the testing process over 20 times on various platforms and versions.

"For those customers who require a DoD-certified records management solution within SharePoint 2010, OpenText is clearly a strong choice," said Jared Spataro, Director of Product Management at Microsoft. "Moreover, OpenText's latest offering extends and complements the rich ECM capabilities offered by SharePoint 2010 to specific industry or regulatory solutions." 

Managed by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), DoD 5015.02-STD certification involves a rigorous testing process. In this case, OpenText had OpenText Records Management and its Application Governance and Archiving for SharePoint offerings tested in an environment that included SharePoint 2010 and a full set of Microsoft operating systems, office applications and database servers. Through the test, OpenText met requirements for applying records management policies and securely managing the entire lifecycle of the information.

"This latest DoD certification reinforces our ECM industry leadership and is another important step in our strong relationship with Microsoft," said Lubor Ptacek, Vice President of Product Marketing at OpenText. "We continue to build our strategy to extend the ECM competency of SharePoint 2010 with additional capabilities and integrate content from across the enterprise. That focus has allowed us to again be the first major ECM supplier with a fully certified records management solution for SharePoint 2010."

OpenText is a worldwide leader in records management, offering solutions that allow organizations to apply retention and records management policies to content in multiple systems. For Microsoft SharePoint 2010, OpenText's solution allows users to access, classify and manage records directly from a familiar SharePoint 2010 or Microsoft Office user interface. In addition to the seven DoD certifications including solutions for use with SAP, OpenText's records management software is also certified under the United Kingdom's TNA regulations and Australia's VERS regulations.
