Business Network

OpenText™ Business Network is a set of solutions within Enterprise Information Management (EIM) that facilitate efficient, secure, and compliant exchange of information inside and outside of organizations.

Traditional information exchange practices have long consisted of an ad hoc arrangement of fragmented systems that don’t talk to each other, increasing business costs and security risks while slowing down transactions. With business globalization, the need for greater supply chain visibility combined with increased regulatory pressure and the advent of cloud computing, means organizations are rethinking the way they exchange information, internally and with external business partners.

OpenText Business Network delivers a comprehensive product set that accelerates time to transaction. It integrates messaging and B2B Integration services such as secure mail, large file transfer, fax and EDI within a single platform – enabling any-to-any transactions. Cloud or on-premises, Business Network enables businesses to accelerate and control how information is delivered – increasing the security and reliability of sensitive or complex communications. Our global presence ensures you can connect with customers and suppliers everywhere, including China, Brazil and Australia. Organizations can now execute transactions quickly, easily and with a higher level of confidence.

Business Network is redefining enterprise conversations by extending governance best practices across channels to ensure compliance and removing barriers by accelerating information sharing.
