OpenText Announces 24-City Cloud Summit

Worldwide Summit will help Customers transform with Enterprise Information Management in the Cloud

WATERLOO, Ontario, Oct. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenText(TM) (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), announced OpenText Cloud Summit, a global 24-city tour to provide expert coaching and support on the journey to the cloud. The event will help organizations map how EIM applications and flexible cloud architecture combine to deliver innovation, growth and business results.

"OpenText is delivering next generation cloud services and applications to power digital business and a modern workforce. The OpenText cloud enables hybrid workloads and brings enterprise-class security to our customers, while maintaining the reliability and agility they depend on," said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText CEO & CTO. "Our cloud-first approach is redefining the role of information, data and collaboration in the modern workplace."

Cloud Summit will provide guidance on how leaders can transform their businesses through cloud, including discussions with a global roster of IDC analysts on what a cloud-first future means for the EIM industry and the tactics and strategies companies should be using to get there.

Powerful Cloud-first EIM Applications and Services
OpenText EIM applications continue to define the industry. The wide range of applications, including content services, customer experience, collaboration, capture, sharing and electronic signature, along with innovative archiving and information governance solutions, help companies turn information into a competitive advantage.

    --  OpenText Core is the next-generation of SaaS applications designed to
        help manage information and content-intensive business processes.
        OpenText Core Share adds file sharing and collaboration to OpenText
        Content Services. The addition of apps for compliance, legal, quality,
        customer experience and now Core Signature, help manage processes and
        improve productivity.
    --  OpenText Business Network - B2B Services and application-to-application
        connectivity are key to modern business processes, offering flexible,
        cloud-based any-to-any integrations for advanced supply chains and
        business process such as invoicing and accounts payable.
    --  OpenText Release CE, expected in April 2020, will deliver cloud-first
        versions of market-leading EIM applications. Through automatic updates,
        containerized apps will deliver an information advantage in a manner
        designed with reliability and flexibility in mind.

Flexible Cloud for Complex Global Business
Cloud brings both attractive economics and technical benefit. Once companies have a modern infrastructure in place, attention can turn to innovation through compelling new applications and the ability to quickly respond to new trends.

According to IDC, "Running a digital business requires next-generation applications which, in turn, need highly agile and elastic infrastructure. Thus enterprises are migrating their application stacks to the cloud to gain elasticity, agility, and other advantages that are ordinarily unachievable in a legacy datacenter." *

Barrenechea further added, "It is time to upgrade to the OpenText Cloud and create a modern platform for innovation. The OpenText Cloud is an enterprise-ready global cloud infrastructure with seamless integration to Google Cloud Platform, AWS and Azure, and the ability to offer hybrid connections to off-cloud apps and services."
