- OpenText pioneered many of the key capabilities that define enterprise information management
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise digital media market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes OpenText with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. OpenText was also the recipient of the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. OpenText, a global market leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), is the largest content management system vendor in the world, both in terms of market revenue and breadth of its product portfolio. The company's content and data management capabilities outstrip its competitors', even as it continually expands its functional capacity and features into new technology and market sectors.
OpenText has been a top-rung content and information management vendor since the inception of the content management system (CMS) industry, more than 20 years ago. OpenText has consistently delivered top-of-the-line document, content and data management solutions through acquisitions and product line expansions.
"When the market required expanded document management capabilities or the management of varied content formats, it acquired several companies and brought together their diverse functionality in a unified and configurable document and content management solution," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Megan Groves. "More recently, when OpenText identified a rising demand for integrated Web content management, business process management, and precision case management, it acquired, built and expanded its market-leading capabilities across all its product segments."
OpenText's recent rebranding of its enterprise content management (ECM) solution, including all of its peripheral and best-of-breed complementary business lines, into a single Enterprise Information Management (EIM) platform represents a significant realignment of its solutions. OpenText is the first to market with a broad platform geared toward the specific needs and performance demands of users from across the organization.
"OpenText is delighted to be honored as Frost & Sullivan's 2013 Company of the Year," said OpenText CEO Mark J. Barrenechea. "This recognition reinforces OpenText's commitment to helping our customers transform their businesses with information-based strategies and solutions. OpenText EIM software is enabling CIOs across the globe to deliver on the promise of information, today."
OpenText has been at the vanguard of a new trend of powerful platforms built around structured architectures that enables the integration of all content and data management tools, creating industry-specific and, ultimately, flexible platforms. As an integrated platform, OpenText EIM expands its capabilities across both structured and unstructured data environments, integrates multiple newer data formats and sources, and provides the flexibility of cloud-based, on-premises, or hybrid access and management. Frost & Sullivan anticipates that its EIM platform will shift the market, redefine market capabilities, and ensure its long-term and continuous growth.
With a wider selection of existing CMS and associated products than any other CMS vendor, OpenText has multiple entry points into customer organizations, global regions, and technologies. With larger ECM and associated product revenue than its competitors and a diverse and global talent pool to select from, OpenText can afford to invest significantly in the exploration, testing and deployment of new technologies.
OpenText has introduced many advanced solutions, including the concept of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) platform model for ECM. This platform model has enabled vast product integration flexibility and cross-functional connectivity across OpenText's ECM solution. OpenText is also investing in and developing advanced analytics solutions that allow customers to test, measure and assign quantitative value to individual content or data sets.
"Throughout its architecture, processes, and data management environment, OpenText's CMS solutions are tailored to multiple user types across the enterprise, from IT to marketing, and across facilities and geographic boundaries," noted Groves. "It also caters to assorted verticals and the unique needs of these verticals allow OpenText to build-out from its core ECM solution to advanced, vertical-specific functionality and capacity."
When pre-defined ECM solutions are not an exact fit, or when clients prefer to retain legacy ECM components, OpenText's ECM platform will prove highly useful, as they are adaptable and customizable. By deploying the EIM platform, they may not only optimize the functionality of their existing systems, but also enhance the usability and value of their existing content and data, while allowing for future expansion and growth—all through a single, integrated platform.
"OpenText has streamlined its solutions into the highly integrated EIM product portfolio, while its competitors have splintered off into single-focus solutions, siloed services, and functional apartheid," observed Groves. "These factors have allowed OpenText to continually focus on building and securing its market leadership positioning, while simultaneously investing in innovation and leading change in the marketplace."
Although its chief competitors may offer a combination of solutions, none provides a total solution with the same level of consistent quality, scalability, flexibility, user friendliness, system robustness and security that OpenText does on its EIM platform.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that demonstrated superior entrepreneurial ability in its industry during the research period. This award signifies the company's identification of a unique and revolutionary product solution with significant market potential. Additionally, it certifies the company's marketing strategy as sound and poised for success.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

About a year ago we tuned into “the need for speed” and how a concept like "serverless computing” was increasingly catering to this. We are now a year further and the term “serverless” is taking on unexpected proportions. With some even seeing it as the successor to cloud in general or at least as a successor to the clouds’ poorer cousin in terms of revenue, hype and adoption: PaaS. The question we need to ask is whether this constitutes an example of Hype Hopping: to effortlessly pivot to the ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model.

As applications are promoted from the development environment to the CI or the QA environment and then into the production environment, it is very common for the configuration settings to be changed as the code is promoted. For example, the settings for the database connection pools are typically lower in development environment than the QA/Load Testing environment. The primary reason for the existence of the configuration setting differences is to enhance application performance. However, occas...

When scaling agile / Scrum, we invariable run into the alignment vs autonomy problem. In short: you cannot have autonomous self directing teams if they have no clue in what direction they should go, or even shorter: Alignment breeds autonomy. But how do we create alignment? and what tools can we use to quickly evaluate if what we want to do is part of the mission or better left out? Niel Nickolaisen created the Purpose Alignment model and I use it with innovation labs in large enterprises to de...

Throughout history, various leaders have risen up and tried to unify the world by conquest. Fortunately, none of their plans have succeeded. The world goes on just fine with each country ruling itself; no single ruler is necessary. That’s how it is with the container platform ecosystem, as well.
