WATERLOO, Ontario, April 24, 2017 /CNW/ -- OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced its 2017 Enterprise World user conference. The annual event, now in its 19th year, will be held in Toronto, Canada at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from July 11-13, 2017. Featuring keynote addresses from OpenText CEO and CTO Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText President Steve Murphy, OpenText Executive Vice President of Engineering Muhi Majzoub and special guest Wayne Gretzky, the event will provide attendees with a comprehensive view of the digital and Artificial Intelligence (AI) trends changing businesses across the globe and the strategies, tactics, and tools to achieve success.

OpenText Enterprise World 2017 delivers an entirely new experience. This year's event features four customized conferences with tracks to meet the individual needs of all attendees:

  • OpenText User Conference addresses specific uses and applications of the OpenText EIM platform, highlighting Customer Experience Management, Business Network, Enterprise Content Management, Business Process Management, Analytics and Discovery
  • OpenText Industry Conference identifies and explores the specific trends impacting Financial Services, Life Sciences, Public Sector, Energy and Engineering industries
  • OpenText Partner and Technology Conference incorporates tracks for traditional OpenText partners, and a brand new symposium for innovative technology companies in their early stages
  • OpenText Educational Conference offers post-secondary and graduate students a chance to get a head start on their career with mentoring and technical skill sessions

"Digital and AI allow executives to re-think business and fundamentally change go-to-market models, customer journeys, supply chains and how we innovate," said OpenText CEO and CTO Mark J. Barrenechea. "Customers need new technologies to digitize such as OpenText Release 16 and new AI technologies such as OpenText Magellan to automatically advance business. This is a generational shift, and at Enterprise World 2017, we will showcase the technologies and companies that will be the foundation of a digital future driven by insight."

OpenText Enterprise World 2017 welcomes hockey legend Wayne Gretzky on stage for a Fireside Chat with OpenText CEO and CTO Mark Barrenechea. Gretzky is widely considered to be the greatest hockey player of all-time. The legendary player holds or shares 61 NHL records and is the only player in the history of the NHL to have his jersey number retired by all member clubs. Seven months after he retired, Gretzky was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Canada, becoming the tenth and final player in Hockey Hall of Fame history to have the mandatory three-year waiting period for enshrinement waived by the Hall's board of directors. Gretzky will discuss his career and what drove him to success. 

OpenText Enterprise World provides a platform to interact and discuss the fourth industrial revolution with the organizations at the heart of it, and to help companies understand the digital and AI trends that will define the future of business. Attendees have an opportunity to connect with OpenText executives, industry thought leaders and hundreds of peers at the precipice of the revolution and gain the knowledge to achieve their digital future.

Customers can also join OpenText for hands-on, interactive training sessions (July 8-10, 2017), which will provide detailed instruction from OpenText experts, educators, and developers on OpenText's solutions.
