collective experience of our employees, customers, and partners and the power
of ECM to transform their organizations," said John Shackleton, President and
Chief Executive Officer of Open Text. "We want to help customers gain maximum
value from content, wherever it resides, to make their organizations more
efficient, reduce costs and improve competitiveness during these uncertain
economic times. This is not just an Open Text event, but an industry event
where we will collaborate, exchange ideas and shape the future of ECM."
