OpenText(TM) Extends the EIM Value Proposition to Mainframe and Other Semi-Structured Information Systems

New Report & Output Management offerings provide Content Server, eDOCS and SharePoint® users with secure access to mainframe content

WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTC), a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software, today announced the availability of OpenText Report & Output Management solutions for mainframes. The new Report & Output Management interfaces extend the EIM value proposition to mainframe-generated content by making it available to users of OpenText Content Server, OpenText eDOCS, and Microsoft SharePoint.

The new interfaces allow customers to capture and store information in mainframe formats and present it to users within their ECM environment in a logical, personalized, and secure manner. The solution extends the content sources and data types available to Content Server, eDOCS and SharePoint and gives users a single user experience when searching or viewing mixed content.

"Mainframe systems continue to generate a significant amount of semi-structured output such as reports, and the volumes and formats that are involved can make using that content difficult," said Jason Likins, Vice President of Report & Output at OpenText. "Our solution enables companies to leverage their existing mainframe content for business applications outside the mainframe system."

Mainframe-enabled repositories provide consolidated access to all enterprise content and help reduce IT backlog associated with custom report generation. In addition, users can now leverage legacy content for business applications such as electronic statements, bill presentment, and customer service. The ability to manage mainframe-originated content in a content repository also extends enterprise-wide information governance strategies to mainframe applications. With safe and secure information transmission that adheres to best practices and strict governance policies, users can control the retention, accessibility and auditability of mainframe content managed in a compliant repository.

These new software products are components of the OpenText Report & Output Management suite, which captures and stores critical information from packaged ERP applications such as SAP®, Oracle® E-Business Suite, and PeopleSoft® - as well as from custom, mainframe and legacy applications. By exposing mainframe reports within the Content Server, eDOCS and SharePoint environments, report content can now be shared across the entire organization in a secure manner, without the need to provide a mainframe terminal access to all users. As a result, OpenText's mainframe-enabled solutions allow customers to manage their report information throughout its lifecycle, improving business productivity while controlling costs and mitigating risks.

Availability
OpenText Report & Output Management is now available world-wide through all OpenText direct and partner channels.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
