By CIOReview | Monday, November 30, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Presence of the right level of expertise and technology that enables customers to mitigate the risks and costs associated with information management and their permanent retention is vital. Information governance is an area that requires people who are well aware of their role. Perhaps that’s the reason why OpenText, a provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software, has acquired Daegis, a software and services company with solutions for information archiving, information governance, application development and migration.

With businesses having limited knowledge on how to plan and manage their data needs, the need for dependable information governance solutions arises. To deal with such management issues, now OpenText plans to make use of Daegis’ set of services. The acquired company takes care of the entire software implementation process, right from the day of installation to the day when it goes live. To keep pace with the constant changing compliance regulations, Daegis provides a scalable information governance system.

Designed to reduce risk and mitigate the cost of growing volumes of content in the enterprise, the OpenText Content Suite facilitates an agile information governance strategy. It is a set of enterprise content management (ECM) technologies that includes a platform to unite capture, document and records management, workflow, search and archiving as well as applications and add-ons such as email, eDiscovery, auto-classification, contract management and engineering document management.

The key features of OpenText Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Content Suite include: management of information flows across the organization; application of consistent governance policies across any type of content in the enterprise; adaption of information governance according to the needs of users; provide rapid and seamless access to content from any device, or any location; and maintain compliance and security.
