OpenText Debuts 2020 Vision Arming Customers with EIM to Address Digital Disruption

-- 2020 Agenda Takes Centre Stage During OpenText Global 2014 Innovation Tour 

WATERLOO, Ontario, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), the global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today debuted its vision for helping organisations set their 2020 Agenda to ensure success in the new digital economy. As part of its global 2014 Innovation Tour, OpenText is outlining a step-by-step roadmap for C-suite leaders that includes best practices in navigating today's rapidly evolving business landscape.

Launched at its Innovation Tour, OpenText vision for the 2020 Agenda addresses critical issues surrounding the Digital Enterprise, including:

  • Digital Experience – Transforming customer experience from marketing and sales to customer service through enterprise information-driven omni-channel communications.
  • Digital Workplace – Addressing the changes in the workforce – many of which will consist of digital natives by 2020 – and providing employees with the tools to get their work done, however and wherever they choose.
  • Digital Supply Chain – Establishing real-time connections with suppliers and trading partners with unprecedented accuracy and agility, reducing costs and accelerating speed.
  • Digital Governance and Security – Creating an information governance framework encompassing all functions of the digital enterprise.

"By 2020, there will be a number of disruptive forces converging including, new technologies such as 3D printing and wearable technology; digital disruption surrounding how consumers and organisations buy through new supply chains; and a new kind of workforce, 50 percent of which will be digital natives," said Mark Barrenechea, president and chief executive officer at OpenText. "Our customers must now transform their businesses, digitising every process, to maximise competiveness and effectiveness. OpenText is helping customers prepare for the digital economy of tomorrow by re-conceptualising their information platforms today with our EIM strategy."

"The emerging digital infrastructure is changing the way we do business, blurring lines between customers, employees and suppliers," said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, research director, Social Business, 451 Research. "In turn, managing information, and indeed managing business itself is becoming more and more challenging. Successful businesses in the future will be the ones that find that balance between social fragmentation and control."

In order to best address these digital enterprise imperatives, today's C-suites must establish a robust enterprise information management strategy to transition to a digital enterprise. This strategy must be driven by the strategic CIO in conjunction with productive partnerships with line of business managers. Organisational success will be dependent on the C-suite's ability to align business objectives and leverage enterprise information to meet those goals. That is only possible, if information is managed holistically across the enterprise based on an enterprise-wide strategy that prevents disjointed point solutions, whether in the cloud or on premises.

"CIOs will emerge as strategic leaders within the C-suite, empowering the entire business with the information needed to drive innovation, accelerate revenue and growth," said Patrick Harper, chief information officer at OpenText. "The strategic CIO needs to articulate an enterprise information management strategy that enables the enterprise to drive faster time to market, time to revenue and time to satisfaction, while constantly mitigating security and information governance risks."

OpenText's Project Red Oxygen enables organisations to discover, manage, and use information to spur growth and innovation across their organisation, decreasing time to competitive advantage. Consisting of five comprehensive and integrated product suites; Content Suite, Process Suite, Experience Suite, Discovery Suite and Information Exchange Suite, Project Red Oxygen delivers a common developer platform, engaging and consistent user experience and deep integration across suites to enable CIOs to partner with all lines of business.

OpenText is unveiling its 2020 Agenda roadmap during its 2014 Innovation Tour to a vast global network of 100,000+ customers and 600,000+ partners.
