Designed exclusively for SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, the new cloud-based solution helps organisations manage human resources (HR) and employee documents from generation to disposition in a secure and compliant manner. Available immediately, the solution helps businesses to improve organisational performance and increase HR efficiency and productivity by centralising the way they digitalise, create, store, manage and access employee documents. “More than any other department, HR professionals are responsible for a vast amount of information which is pivotal to the organisation,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “Helping companies manage their essential employee records through a single, cloud-based source is a significant step for companies wanting to more effectively manage an increasingly global, digital workforce. SAP SuccessFactors Extended ECM by OpenText offers HR professionals a solution uniquely designed to help reduce the time and complexity associated with document management.” With SAP SuccessFactors Extended ECM, customers will be better able to manage employee documents according to country- and region-specific requirements, more easily locate information through powerful search functionality, and generate HR documents and employee correspondence through the availability of set templates, content and pre-defined workflows. Integrated within SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, the solution helps ensure that relevant employee file content is readily accessible to HR professionals, managers and employees within the context of the appropriate HR business processes and workflows. "HR digital transformation is about removing the many manual tasks that are tedious and complicated, and that expose the organisation to security and compliance risks,” said Yvette Cameron, senior vice president of Strategy at SAP SuccessFactors. "As workforces expand and businesses become increasingly global, HR cannot afford to spend hundreds of hours each year manually storing, managing and retrieving employee documents. With SAP SuccessFactors Extended ECM, we are fulfilling our commitment to helping our customers achieve efficiency and accuracy as they operate on a global scale." Additional highlights include: Centralised Digital Employee Files – Pre-defined HR folder structures and taxonomy help simplify the processing, managing and securing of large volumes of employee, retiree, contractor and job applicant documents from one location.

The reports look comprehensively at the Enterprise Content Management market, identifying the most significant software providers and evaluated both OpenText™ Content Suite and OpenText™ Documentum. The report on Business Content Services cites OpenText’s continued, “hybrid approach, making its Content Suite available in the OpenText Cloud, as well as customers’ preferred public cloud services such as Azure or Amazon.” It also notes OpenText’s focus on “productivity use cases, with ongoing integration to major leading enterprise applications (such as Salesforce or SAP SuccessFactors).” The Transactional Services report states that, “OpenText continues to execute on its strategy to embed content and process services into core business systems, including Salesforce, SAP, and other cloud and on-premises enterprise applications. Its application data archiving, BPM, life-cycle management, and foundational content services all support this extended ECM market position.” “We feel being ranked a leader for Enterprise Content Management by Forrester in both areas of evaluation, Transactional Content Services and Business Content Services, underscores the depth of use cases OpenText ECM solutions can successfully address,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer for OpenText. “We believe OpenText’s strategy to support and extend the OpenText Content Server and OpenText Documentum platforms with services from LEAP has positively impacted our leadership position and reinforces a bright future for OpenText ECM customers.” According to the reports, “Forrester forecasts enterprise content management to be a global market worth $8 billion in 2017, rising to $9 billion in 2018.” They note that, “business content includes familiar formats, such as office documents, spreadsheets, email, and multimedia” while “transactional content includes scanned documents or print streams generated from back-office applications.” The reports find that “business content drives the day-to-day workplace experience” and “transactional content drives high-volume customer-focused processes.” The Forrester Transactional Content Services report reveals “that the top three areas of measurable return on investment (ROI) for ECM deployments are process automation, increased productivity of knowledge workers, and paper savings.” While for Business Content Services, Forrester finds, “ECM program leaders in 2017 are focused on improving their organisations’ compliance with regulations, digitising their business processes, accelerating knowledge sharing, and improving their own customers’ experience.” OpenText Content Suite and OpenText Documentum are ECM solutions designed to help organisations take full advantage of the opportunities offered through digital transformation.

The companion report to the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, the report assesses 15 vendors ECM suites' functional capabilities to support five use cases. OpenText received the highest product scores in the Digital Transformation/Modernisation, Content Ecosystem and Records Management and Compliance Use Cases and received the second highest product scores in the remaining two categories, Personal and Team Productivity and Process Applications.   According to the Gartner report, “ECM solutions must address a range of user constituencies, within and outside the enterprise, while meeting a broad set of functional requirements…One size does not fit all in content management. Organisations have many content-centric processes — formal and ad hoc, internal and customer facing — that enterprise content management (ECM) systems support. The ECM vendor landscape is diverse, with some vendors' products being platforms that are suited to a wide variety of use cases and others optimised for departmental applications and processes, or for worker-oriented activities.”   "Becoming a digital organisation requires a fundamental shift in customer engagement, in developing digital operations and in applying analytics to continuously measure and improve.  OpenText is committed to bringing products to market that support this cycle of engage to insight for our customers,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “OpenText Content Suite 16 has transformed ECM from a static repository into a system of engagement for the digital employee, making it a destination for collaboration and bringing content into the context of key business processes to add value. We believe being recognised for Digital Transformation is a clear indication that OpenText continues to evolve ECM as the needs of our customers continue to evolve as well.”   Gartner also notes that, "ECM program managers must build a strategy and a portfolio of solutions to address the spectrum of user needs and enterprise requirements when it comes to content management. Some content needs and requirements are geared more toward flexible knowledge worker access and value inside the enterprise. Most organisations also must address content that needs to be accessed, shared or delivered outside the enterprise. Still other content needs are more focused on regulatory compliance or transactional use cases. It is critical to map these needs and requirements to the right tools as some solutions are optimised for certain use cases.”   OpenText Content Suite 16 is a comprehensive enterprise content management system designed to help organisations take full advantage of the opportunities offered through digital transformation. By creating a centralised, unified information backbone, OpenText Content Suite connects information from across the enterprise with the people and systems that need it, driving productivity with simple, intuitive tools and user experiences.   Gartner's Critical Capabilities requires analysts to identify the critical capabilities for a class of products or services. “"Critical capabilities" are attributes that differentiate products/services in a class in terms of their quality and performance. Each capability is then weighted in terms of its relative importance for specific product or service use cases. Products/services are rated in terms of how well they achieve each of the critical capabilities. A score that summarises how well they meet the critical capabilities for each use case is then calculated for each product/service. Gartner recommends that users consider the set of critical capabilities as some of the most important criteria for acquisition decisions.”   Gartner Disclaimer Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings or other designation. Gartner research publications consist of the opinions of Gartner's research organisation and should not be construed as statements of fact.

Using OpenText Managed Services and OpenText Active Invoices with Compliance, Campari is able to exchange information with each of its trading partners while managing compliance with country-specific tax regulations.   Campari is a major player in the global spirits industry, with a portfolio of over 50 premium and super-premium brands, including Aperol, Appleton Estate, Campari, SKYY, Wild Turkey and Grand Marnier. Founded in 1860, Campari has become the sixth-largest player worldwide in the premium spirits industry. Campari faced challenges managing its disparate B2B systems and was looking to modernise and consolidate its infrastructure to support its key business initiatives. “By consolidating onto a single B2B backbone, managed by a single global provider, we can provide the highest level of service to our customers, significantly reduce complexity and gain better control and visibility into our global supply chain,” said Christopher Woods, Head of Group IT, Campari. “With OpenText Managed Services, we have complete visibility across all our business systems and information silos both inside and outside the enterprise.”   Campari selected OpenText to create a single, integrated B2B backbone that would enable it to gain greater visibility and insight into B2B transactions, minimise supply-chain disruption and capture significant business value through increased operational and competitive agility.   Campari also looked to automate its Order-to-Cash processes that handle more than 500,000 transactions every year. This was an opportunity for the group to rethink its B2B strategy and move to a more agile, cloud-based B2B integration platform which could connect all formats and systems via one link into the ERP system.   As Campari operates in multiple jurisdictions across the globe, it also opted to implement OpenText Active Invoices with Compliance to get a single solution to help maintain tax compliance for electronic invoicing with customers located in different countries.   “A key factor in electronic invoicing is ensuring that each invoice is compliant with local tax authority regulations, and it is a complex challenge for businesses with our scale and reach,” said Woods. “OpenText Active Invoices with Compliance helps us manage compliance with regulations across 41 countries.”   To learn more about OpenText B2B Managed Services and OpenText Business Network, visit www.opentext.com.     About OpenText OpenText enables the digital world, creating a better way for organisations to work with information, on premises or in the cloud.

The report evaluated 15 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendors.   According to the Gartner report, “Shifting business requirements for digital content and new technologies are changing the ECM market.” And, “By 2018, more than 20% of the enterprise content management solution sales will address multiorganisation "ecosystem" content.”   Gartner notes that, "The dynamics of the global ECM market are changing. As a practice, ECM is evolving into a strategic framework for services that target specific use cases and audiences. Meanwhile, the ECM technology market is becoming more purpose-driven, with the emergence of specialised technologies that can integrate tightly with affiliated content systems. This evolution creates new opportunities and options for application leaders in charge of ECM, especially those engaged in digital business initiatives that: Disrupt monolithic ECM solutions, which no longer meet organisations' fast-changing content requirements; Demand increasingly distributed, more diverse, smarter and more contextualised content and use cases; and Emphasise business-driven requirements to draw on LOB content management investments."   "We believe being recognised as a leader in this report underscores the commitment we have made to our customers to enable digital transformation through ECM,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “The progression of our product offerings, both organically and through strategic acquisitions, allows us to offer a portfolio of rich solutions that evolve with market requirements and lead to success for our customers. With OpenText Release 16, we offer a complete and integrated platform to manage both structured and unstructured information throughout the enterprise from customer engagement to business insights, allowing customers to discover the value of their information and apply it for increased business success.   OpenText has continued to add technologies to expand its market position by further completing the vision of EIM from Engagement to Insight. OpenText Suite 16, complemented with Enhancement Pack 1 (EP1) is a major advance, with a modern UI and a strong focus on updated experiences for the integrated ECM, BPM and analytics suites. OpenText maintains a wide portfolio of solutions and services that can meet many vertical needs including legal, life sciences, government and healthcare.   OpenText Content Suite is designed to help organisations take full advantage of the opportunities offered through digital transformation. By creating a centralised, unified information backbone, OpenText Content Suite connects information from across the enterprise with the people and systems that need it, driving productivity with simple, intuitive tools and user experiences. OpenText Content Suite is part of OpenText Release 16, a comprehensive, integrated digital information platform that enables customers to digitise any business process, managing information through its entire lifecycle.  OpenText Release 16 comprehensively enables the flow of information in a digital enterprise from Engagement to Insight.    Magic Quadrants provide a graphical comparative positioning of technology and service providers where market growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. Magic Quadrants depict markets in the middle phases of their life cycle by using a two-dimensional matrix that evaluates vendors based on their "Completeness of Vision" and "Ability to Execute. “Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand and have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus on, and invest in, their offerings to the point where they lead the market and can affect its overall direction. As a result, Leaders can become the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new market offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a large, satisfied customer base (relative to the size of the market) and enjoy high visibility within the market. Their size and financial strength enable them to remain viable in a challenging economy. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialised segments.”*   Click here to download a complimentary copy of the report.   *Gartner, How Markets and Vendors Are Evaluated in Gartner Magic Quadrants, 22 January 2016 Gartner Disclaimer Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings or other designation.

(NASDAQ: FORR) has named OpenText a Strong Performer in its Wave evaluation of Workforce Optimization (WFO) Suites. The report, “The Forrester Wave™: Workforce Optimization Suites, Q3 2016,” named OpenText WFO (Workforce Optimization) Software a Strong Performer. The report evaluated both OpenText™ Qfiniti and OpenText™ Explore.    Forrester’s report looks comprehensively at the Workforce Optimisation market, identifying the most significant software providers. The report cites OpenText’s “three main strategic thrusts for the technology: 1) integrating it into a broad CEM play; 2) using analytics to drive improved customer service; and 3) providing numerous as-a-service consumption models.”   The report also stated, “…the WFO tools have shown a remarkable consistency and unification of look and feel, administration, and security model. The suite’s shining star, its interaction analytics tool Explore, has saved one customer more than seven figures from just the analysis on 20,000 calls.”   Feedback from a customer was also cited, “We have had a seat at the table to influence the overall product road map.”   “OpenText understands that the real power of customer experience includes both digital and human-to-human interactions, and we are proud to receive the rank of a Strong Performer in this Forrester Wave on WFO,” said Adam Howatson, Chief Marketing Officer for OpenText. “We are also committed to strengthening our position in the market through continued investment in the suite. Our number one goal is helping customers tackle their biggest challenges in the digital transformation, and contact centre management is a key challenge for many businesses.   The OpenText WFO Software suite brings a 32-year history of innovation in the contact centre industry and more than 24 technology patents. Forrester ranked OpenText WFO Software among the highest ratings in interaction recording and eLearning and coaching, and among the second-highest ratings for product architecture and customer satisfaction.   The Forrester report comments on the importance of the role of customer experience capabilities, stating that “Customer service application pros see WFO tools as the gasoline that powers customer service organisations. As a result, the more obviously customer experience-focused WFO tools, such as speech analytics, are seeing more rapid adoption growth.”   Howatson added, “OpenText’s WFO solution plays a strategic role in our CEM portfolio. One of OpenText’s key differentiators is the sophisticated speech analytics capabilities of OpenText Explore. This puts OpenText in an excellent position to help organisations drive and continually improve superior customer experiences with transformational analytical insights.”   OpenText WFO Software is part of the OpenText EIM portfolio, designed to enable organisations to discover and manage information to spur growth and innovation and decrease time to competitive advantage. The platform consists of comprehensive and integrated product solutions including Content Suite, Process Suite, Experience Suite, Analytics Suite and Business Network. OpenText’s EIM solutions are available for deployment on premises, in the cloud and in hybrid deployments.   Forrester used a combination of three data sources to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each solution. This particular report looked at the Workforce Optimisation market, identifying vendors that have a strong WFO market presence and offer a full suite, versus disconnected components, and receive frequent interest from Forrester clients.     Download The Forrester Wave™: Workforce Optimization Suites, Q3 2016 for more details.  About OpenText OpenText enables the digital world, creating a better way for organisations to work with information, on premises or in the cloud.

Election Tracker ’16 allows users to visually monitor, compare, and analyse media coverage surrounding the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election coverage from the world's top online news publications and agencies. Individuals are encouraged to access the election tool at Electiontracker.us for a complete picture of the current media coverage of the U.S. Presidential election.      Election Tracker ’16 curates text from thousands of online news articles and global media outlets, to create meaningful, visual, and highly interactive dashboards that summarise and compare coverage across news outlets, presidential candidates, hot topics, and tone. With Election Tracker ’16, users can visualise election trends as they unfold in the news media. The interactive tool can also compare candidates based on mentions across topics, history, geography, or sentiment. The topics, which represent key election issues, are dynamically generated from the news coverage. Electiontracker.us was built using Process Suite, Content Suite and Analytics Suite Release 16.   “Analysing both structured and unstructured data provides a full picture of any situation to enable smarter, data-driven business decisions,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “Election Tracker '16 evaluates election news coverage, using the articles themselves as a source of unstructured data. OpenText technology actually analyses the content of the unstructured data, much in the way a human would, only much faster and with a perfect memory and better aggregate insight over massive volumes. Election Tracker ’16 is a working example of unstructured data analysis in action and showcases its ability to provide a solution to an increasingly common business concern across all industries.”   Election Tracker ’16 is a prime example that demonstrates the power and importance of unstructured data analysis. While many databases and data visualisation tools are available, most only deal with the structured data in an organisation. However, as the amount of unstructured data contains far greater insight and context, organisations are facing a fundamental challenge. With OpenText, organisations can access and harvest data from any unstructured source, including documents, web sites, social sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), email, document archives (PDF), RSS feeds and blogs – even EIM, ECM, CRM and other core Enterprise systems. These sources can then be combined with structured data to provide a complete picture of the organisation and valuable context including customer sentiment, discussion, brand coverage, media and internet trends or anything you can imagine.   Most pure-play text analytics solutions on the market today do not create a full analysis. They are limited to translating free text to entities and taxonomies, leaving the actual visualisation and analysis to other technologies. Election Tracker ’16 combines the power of content analytics with data analytics by leveraging OpenText InfoFusion to process the content and OpenText Analytics Information Hub to provide dynamic, secure, and scalable visualisation of the data.   OpenText Release 16 powers Electiontracker.us.   OpenText Process Suite - InfoFusion provides standard taxonomies for classifying and extracting meta-data from raw text, assessing its sentiment, and extracting entities such as places, people, organisations, trademarks, products or election issues. Using OpenText Analytics Suite - Information Hub, customer are able to represent the data in any visual format required, offering a huge palette of out-of-the-box charts, graphs and maps for effective data visualisation. Specialising in custom visualisation, Information Hub can create visuals such as word clouds, treemaps and heatmaps and delivers them as HTML, PDF, Excel, Word, PowerPoint and more. All the information is stored and secured in OpenText Content Suite.   The OpenText EIM strategy consists of comprehensive and integrated product suites including Content Suite, Process Suite, Experience Suite, Discovery Suite, Information Exchange, and Analytics.  About OpenText OpenText enables the digital world, creating a better way for organisations to work with information, on premises or in the cloud.
