OpenText Review

OpenText

OpenText is a leading provider of information management and process
automation software, as well as analytics, AI/ML, digital experience,
and business networks. The company describes its broad portfolio
as enterprise information management, spanning both unstructured
content (predominately) and data. By pursuing an acquisition-led
strategy throughout its 30-year history, OpenText has pushed the firm’s
positioning to the edges of the information management market –
often filling in unaddressed or niche spaces overlooked by competitors.1
In doing so, OpenText has made digital process automation a core
component of its overall strategy of putting information to work.
