SAP has agreed to start reselling Open Text’s extended enterprise content management (ECM) in a global deal.
Extended ECM enables customers to bring together enterprise applications and ECM which reduces the risks of records mismanagement.
This is an expansion of the current reseller agreement between the two companies. SAP already resells Open Text’s document access and archiving and invoice management offerings.
A key focus for enterprises is to eliminate silos of information that both dampen productivity and increase exposure to risks said Open Text president and CEO John Shackleton.
“By working closely with SAP, we are able to give customers a way to manage all their vital information in a secure, uniform way, and have it be available to the right person at the right time. We are entering into a new phase in the evolution of content management technology.”
