OpenText Brings More Services to the Cloud

Provider of enterprise information management (EIM) solutions, OpenText, recently made a new set of services available which make use of the company's recent acquisition of EasyLink and its cloud infrastructure, facilitating secure information exchange in the OpenText cloud. Specifically, the company is combining a number of its services — OpenText RightFax, OpenText OCR, OpenText Alchemy and OpenText MBPM —with the OpenText cloud on a single platform.
These services combined means that customers can send, receive, route and archive high volumes of rich documents securely, seamlessly and cost effectively. Indeed, the option to outsource all or part of document-related capture, process routing and telephony needs can reduce costs as well as improve business processes, speed up decision making, improve customer service and reduce the IT burden of document distribution.
“Our new cloud offerings represent the first of many secure, cloud-based information exchange capabilities that OpenText will bring to market in the coming months,” said Mark J Barrenechea, president and CEO of OpenText. “In the 90 days since we acquired EasyLink, we've already leveraged the EasyLink technology and infrastructure and extended OpenText’s reach in the cloud. Our current and future cloud offerings will provide customers with a wide range of capabilities and options for ensuring secure information exchange within and across their organisational boundaries."
Some key benefits of OpenText's new cloud offerings include: secure cloud-based fax communications; secure capture, storage, routing, exchange and life cycle management of sensitive data; and streamlined workflow and BPM services.
Recently, OpenText stated that its first quarter financial results for fiscal year 2013 will be made available on October 31, 2012 at approximately 4 p.m. ET, with a conference to be held to discuss the results shortly after.
The company also recently hired James Mackey as senior vice president or Corporate Development. As such, Mackey is now responsible for OpenText's strategic planning and acquisitions for driving expansion in the global EIM market.
