Open Text Corporation Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
OpenText, a vendor in content management applications now is providing its Information Management applications in the cloud and has moved aggressively into B2B transaction enablement with a series of acquisitions that target everything from electronic messaging to online commerce.
After years of securing a leadership position in helping clients manage rich content and unstructured data, OpenText is adding cloud and hybrid cloud options to their applications and positioning itself for greater growth beyond information management. Because its software is already being used to manage tremendous amounts of information that zips into and out of the enterprise, OpenText aims to tackle bigger challenges on behalf of its clients with a more holistic approach to dealing with content, information governance as well as seamless integration of mission-critical information into different corporate functions needed to render billions or even trillions of transactions with eCommerce partners and customers successfully.

Open Text Corporation Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In December 2019 OpenText acquired Carbonite, Inc. for its cloud-based subscription data protection, backup, disaster recovery, and endpoint security to small and medium-sized businesses and prosumers.
OpenText acquired certain customer experience software and services assets from HP, including HP TeamSite, a modern multi-channel digital experience management platform for web content management, HP MediaBin, a digital asset management solution, HP Qfiniti, an intelligent workforce optimization solution designed to improve enterprise contact center management, as well as HP Explore, HP Aurasma, and HP Optimost. OpenText acquired Daegis for information archiving, information governance, and migration tools.
These solutions enable businesses to mitigate the risks and costs associated with information sprawl and the permanent retention of information.
Open Text Corporation Risks and Challenges
One of the major sources of OpenText’s revenues is derived from tens of thousands of SAP customers that run its content management applications along with their ERP systems and many perceived that the acquisition of GXS could put that long-standing relationship at risk. SAP, which acquired Ariba for its massive trading network, is believed to compete with a similar setup from OpenText through its recent acquisition of GXS. In reality, Ariba and GXS are more complementary than competitive. Additionally, OpenText and SAP expanded their partnership.
For its customers who wish to outsource, SAP will now offer OpenText B2B Managed Services, a cloud-based solution for outsourcing B2B integration project fulfillment and management, as an option.
Open Text Corporation Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
In November 2019 OpenText expanded its OpenText Cloud platform in Japan, with expanded domestic data centers in Tokyo and Osaka. Building on a legacy of delivering OpenText Business Network services in the Japanese market, this expanded capability will help customers transition workloads to the OpenText Cloud while strengthening capacity for disaster recovery and security.
Japanese companies must adhere to new regulations and standards for the storage of personal information while maintaining the flexibility, agility, and capacity for innovation cloud infrastructures offer. To meet these requirements, Japanese customers are looking for new deployment options that keep their data and applications in domestic data centers. With today’s announcement, OpenText will offer customers a full range of domestic hosting options. The OpenText Cloud also ensures Japanese customers are prepared in the event of natural disasters such as earthquakes or flooding. OpenText is expanding the disaster recovery options available to cloud customers with real-time system fail-over capability between data centers in Tokyo and Osaka. This augments disaster recovery enabled between Tokyo and the United States. Even the most highly-regulated and security-conscious companies can rapidly deploy advanced cloud solutions without the need to invest in their own cloud infrastructure.
OpenText primarily sells direct, but it also has hundreds of resellers worldwide.
Its systems integrator partners include Accenture, Deloitte Consulting, Cap Gemini Inc., CGI Group Inc.and Atos Origin.
OpenText has strategic partnerships with SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, and Salesforce.
