Open Text Extends Open Text Everywhere with Native Apple iPhone, iPad Apps

Gives Business Users Access to Open Text ECM Suite 2010 from Apple s Mobile Platforms

Prague - 31th of January 2011 - Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC) showcased a new release of Open Text Everywhere with native client applications for Apple iPhone and iPad. With a growing library of business applications, Apple's popular smartphones and tablets are quickly gaining momentum as an enterprise client platform. With client applications from Open Text, business users gain access to critical content and processes from their iPhones and iPads.

"By themselves, the iPhone and iPad are fantastic devices. But it's not until you add content that they become truly transformative," said Eugene Roman, Chief Technology Officer, Open Text. "With Open Text Everywhere, we are putting the content and business applications on these devices that will absolutely change the way people work, and result in big gains in productivity across the board."

In today's fast moving, globally connected work environment, business doesn't stop when users walk away from their desks. According to a recent Forrester Research survey*, workers are much more likely to use their smartphone or instant-on tablets like iPads while travelling, commuting, in coffee shops or even in different buildings than laptops. While the productivity benefits of delivering enterprise content to smartphones can be substantial, information technology managers face steep challenges to maintain security, control costs and deliver sophisticated applications.

Open Text Everywhere lets users natively and securely access a full set of Open Text ECM Suite 2010 capabilities from both RIM BlackBerry and Apple iPhone and iPad devices. It provides secure end-to-end communication between the ECM Suite and mobile devices, and pushes the permission model and audit capabilities of the ECM Suite right to the device.

Open Text Everywhere provides a comprehensive view of business processes, content and social collaboration tools. On the device side, it gives users a native application that delivers a rich, intuitive and fast user experience. On the server side, Open Text Everywhere is fully integrated with Open Text Content Server, the heart of the ECM Suite, for rapid deployment and minimal impact on IT, with low ongoing maintenance and support requirements.
