Organizations want insight that will improve their knowledge of the various enterprise processes and reduce risks while also driving a healthier bottom line. OpenText Enterprise Information Management (News - Alert) solutions offer those insights as well as a secure information exchange.
Companies today are facing a variety of formats that must be properly managed and structured to operate efficiently. Decisions need to be made fast, but they must be informed decisions that improve the flexibility of an organization while promoting security. Secure information exchange is a must.
OpenText, as highlighted in this piece, offers a service where assets are protected with an information security process considered world-class by many organizations. The amount of data and information is growing by the day and a secure information exchange has never been more important.
Mismanagement of the information can result in severe consequences. Information is not only considered valuable data, it is also considered a risk due to the sensitive nature of the information falling into the wrong hands. OpenText’s enterprise information management (EIM) is providing a secure information exchange platform where the valuable data is less of a risk and more of an asset. Information inside the firewall as well as information outside the firewall is secure with OpenText’s solution.
EIM is being used by organizations to work new techniques and technologies into their secure information exchange processes. They are rethinking the way they capture their data, save it, and share it. Using EIM, organizations are able to share the information they want to share at the exact moment it needs to be shared, providing a completely secure information exchange.
Governance policies often dictate how information is to be exchanged, and EIM is a great tool for staying in compliance with those policies. Data needs to be managed, which is sometimes a difficult task as many businesses are using different software solutions in their day-to-day business processes. OpenText’s Enterprise Content Management brings features to users that allow them to manage their growth of data while taking down the cost of managing that data as well as the risk.
Chief information officers find themselves dealing with highly complex processes and threats to security on a daily basis. They struggle with compliance procedures, audits and lawsuits while trying to balance the constantly changing work culture. A proper EIM will steer these CIOs in the right direction, offering them a risk-free secure information exchange that will keep them compliant and out of the courtroom. EIM through OpenText can be accessed on premise or in the cloud.
