Organizations can solve some of their biggest challenges caused by the deluge of electronic information being created, consumed and stored
WATERLOO, ON, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), the global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced the availability of OpenText InfoFusion, a powerful Information Access Platform that reinvents the way organizations discover, analyze and act on unstructured information across the enterprise.
Almost every large organization has information locked in aging and uncontrolled systems. These information silos reduce productivity, cause problems for IT and, due to their lack of retention control and discoverability, represent significant risk when investigations require eDiscovery. OpenText InfoFusion provides immediate, unified access to critical content sources, improving end-user productivity and satisfaction. At the same time, InfoFusion can migrate content from non-strategic Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems to reduce support costs and manage the lifecycle of content.
"While there has been a lot of attention given to the potential value locked in unstructured content, most organizations are actually just trying to come to grips with the volume and the velocity of growth of unstructured information," said OpenText CEO Mark J. Barrenechea. "IT is struggling to protect the organization from risks associated with data loss, investigations and eDiscovery, as well as productivity impediments such as duplication, lost information and basic access. OpenText InfoFusion unifies information for improved governance and a smarter enterprise. With this modular, standards-based platform, OpenText is making good on its promise to deliver an integrated Enterprise Information Architecture."
Organizations are using OpenText InfoFusion to accelerate their move to OpenText ECM for day-forward Information Governance and retention control. InfoFusion allows organizations to address legacy systems and to migrate legacy content into the only ECM system with tightly integrated Archiving and Records Management.
OpenText InfoFusion is an integral part of many organizations' adoption strategies for OpenText Content Server. OpenText InfoFusion can be used to migrate and centralize content, put it under life-cycle control, increase efficiency, and to create a single source of the truth. Most organizations also realize significant cost-savings by de-commissioning old systems, reducing support and infrastructure costs, while increasing IT agility.
InfoFusion includes migration, aggregation and integration capabilities to enable organizations to:
- Reduce IT complexity and support costs while maximizing storage savings as they consolidate disparate content management and archive systems
- Minimize litigation risk as well as storage and eDiscovery costs by moving content to a retention controlled repository
- Decommission legacy systems that are being maintained solely due to the requirement to maintain access to the content they contain for regulatory or reference purposes
- Rapidly develop applications that extract value from unstructured content and aging systems while improving end-user experience and productivity. (Coming Soon)
