OpenText Corporation, a provider of enterprise information management (EIM) software, has acquired Resonate Knowledge Technologies (Resonate KT (News - Alert)) to deliver improved enterprise content management (ECM) services to global customers.
The acquisition will strengthen OpenText ECM and xECM for SAP (News - Alert) offerings. Resonate KT products are used by more than 500 OpenText customers in 20 countries. Key products from Resonate KT that complement OpenText products include WebReports, WebReports Extensions for Workflow, ActiveView and ActiveView Mobile.
OpenText ECM software, offered as part of OpenText's EIM strategy, unites records management, archiving, search and eDiscovery to minimize organizational risk and cost, and maximize business insight and efficiency. It manages information flow across organizations by offering fast and seamless access from multiple environments such as Web, desktop and mobile within business processes and applications.
Resonate KT enables organizations to visualize unstructured data, create new user experiences for enterprise content management (ECM) and xECM for SAP as well as support the creation of industry based applications that maximize unstructured data residing within Content Server.
OpenText ECM customers can gain a simple, flexible user experience, a powerful reporting engine, and a development platform that provides a competitive advantage over other ECM vendors and platform technologies.
The acquisition benefits ECM customers by reducing the time and complexity of their deployments. It also accelerates user adoption and adds powerful reporting and content visualization on desktop, Web and mobile devices.
"OpenText customers will be able to easily visualize their information, build applications, extract information and drive faster adoption of EIM through the use of Resonate KT software," said OpenText CEO Mark J Barrenechea.
Resonate KT's software products are deeply integrated into OpenText Content Server, which will help customers gain great value, according to Barrenechea.
"By becoming an integral part of OpenText, we will offer a wider scope of customers the ability to bring together structured data, documents, forms, e-mails, workflows within contextual, real-time views and dashboards that are simply not available elsewhere. We are thrilled by becoming a part of the world's leading provider of EIM solutions," said Greg Petti, senior director of product technology, Resonate Knowledge Technologies.
