Records Management Solutions from the OpenText Corporation receive the highest possible evaluation in a study of the leading analytical companies

Prague, 15th March 2006 – The IXTENT company, the leading provider of IT solutions for document management, content management and archiving, has announced that the solutions it offers from OpenText Corporation for records management has earned the highest possible evaluation – Strong Positive – in a survey of the records management market segment (and records services respectively) by the company Gartner Inc. for the year 2005. The study, revealed in December, included solutions from 14 companies and the OpenText Corporation was one of four which received the highest possible evaluation.

The study provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of the records management market and shows that by 2008 60% of all Global 2000 companies (Forbes) will implement company records management solutions, whereas in 2004 it was only 20%. The primary reason for this will be due to the legislative requirements for document handling.

“We regard the analysis of the records management market carried out by Gartner Inc. as absolutely accurate – the regulatory and legislative requirements are the motivating force for implementing records management for our customers,” says Mark Portu, the vice president of Compliance Solutions at OpenText, adding, ”Obviously we are proud of our high evaluation in this study.”
