Keynotes from Mark J. Barrenechea and Colonel Chris Hadfield Explore the Digital World at the Leading Enterprise Information Management Event

WATERLOO, Ontario, May 16, 2016 /CNW/ -- OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced its 2016 Enterprise World user conference. The annual event, now in its eighteenth year, will be held in Nashville, TN at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center from July 11-14, 2016. Featuring keynote addresses from OpenText CEO and CTO Mark J. Barrenechea, and special guest Colonel Chris Hadfield, the event will provide attendees with their visions on the future of information, and a practical roadmap to leverage the new opportunities in the digital world.

Technology Innovations are impacting every aspect of life and fundamentally changing the way organizations operate. In every industry, competitors are taking advantage of new platforms, tools, and integrations to challenge incumbents. OpenText Enterprise World explores the latest trends in the digital landscape and prepares attendees for success in the digital world.

"In the digital world, we are all Information Companies. At Enterprise World 2016 in Nashville, OpenText highlights OpenText Release 16 customers' digital transformations and the insight and value of the next generation of Information Analytics to showcase the power that information holds," said OpenText CEO and CTO Mark J. Barrenechea. "OpenText Release 16 is the digital platform for customers looking to consolidate content management, analytics, application and business network information on one platform to derive value from all their unstructured information. Our customers have spent the last decade putting data into these systems and at Enterprise World we will demonstrate how OpenText Release 16 can help them get that information out."

OpenText Enterprise World 2016 will also welcome retired Canadian astronaut, Col. Chris Hadfield, to the main stage. As a heavily decorated astronaut, engineer, and pilot, Hadfield was the first Canadian to walk in space. While in space, Hadfield embraced the digital world and built a social media presence that includes more than 1,500,000 Twitter followers, and one of the top Reddit AMA threads of all time. Col. Hadfield will explore the commitment, sacrifice, and hard work that allowed him to achieve his dreams, and the valuable lessons he has learned during a career spanning more than 20 years.

OpenText Enterprise World 2016 will feature more sessions than ever before with more than  200 targeted breakouts including roadmap & strategy sessions, interactive workshops, expert panels and customer roundtables focused on cloud, security, collaboration, compliance, analytics and more. The Innovation Lab will allow customers to evaluate new OpenText technology, to collaborate, and to influence future product development; the Developer Lab will guide users to build applications with the OpenText Engineering team in Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced sessions; and the EXPO will provide an opportunity to connect with OpenText partners, EIM experts and customers.
