Posted in Commentary with tags on October 8, 2019 by itnerd
OpenText™ 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.

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.

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.”
