OpenText Release 16

Digitize, automate and optimize enterprise information flows

Release 16 helps manage enterprise information flows.

Release 16Today's disruptive digital technologies transform both enterprise and consumer spaces, re-shaping expectations of how employees work, collaborate and conduct business. The capacity to generate and collect information is greater than ever before, and deriving meaningful insight from it is the next major transformative activity for business. It will fuel further disruption but also open new possibilities and set the stage for innovative business models.

OpenText Release 16 and its Enhancement Packs (EP1, EP2, EP3 and EP4) rise to the challenge by offering the only complete solution for Enterprise Information Management (EIM) with a comprehensive view of how information flows in a connected and intelligent enterprise. New opportunities present themselves to organizations enabling them to leverage the power of hybrid cloud models, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation to transform the way they operate and innovate.

For us, this is a win-win solution, resulting in easy collaboration and content management oversight, for both end-users and organizations alike!”
