By CIOReview | Monday, November 17, 2014

ORLANDO, FL: OpenText, provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) announces the launch of OpenText Microsoft SharePoint Services (SPS) for Extended ECM for Oracle E-Business Suite. The solution provides comprehensive ERP-associated content management, governance and compliance management capabilities to customers.

The OpenText SPS solution allows Microsoft SharePoint users to work with, and add to content managed by OpenText without leaving their native application. Combined with Extended ECM for Oracle E-Business Suite, users can chip in directly in the content-enriched Oracle E-Business Suite business process to facilitate an integrated approach for enterprise content management.

"OpenText's new SharePoint Services for Extended ECM for Oracle E-Business Suite leverages the existing investments customers have made in Microsoft SharePoint and Oracle to help them fully utilize enterprise information in the way they worktoday," says Patricia Nagle, Vice President, Global Strategic Alliances at OpenText.

Nagle further explains that by integrating the Oracle ERP-embedded ECM product with SharePoint Services enable organizations to further unite the ERP and ECM environments. With the reduced risk and costs of unintended, application-prohibited information access, customers will be able to increase information worker productivity as well as the value derived from critical and collaborative content.

The solution tries to bring enterprise information to more non-ECM users - in sync with related enterprise transaction data, and available in the user's familiar application and process context. The Suite supports multiple cloud (Office 365) environments, and on-premises or hybrid SharePoint environments with the same Extended ECM for Oracle E-Business Suite backend, including OpenText's full Content Suite.

The solution offers wide-ranging functionality that supports an efficient, cost-effective and broadly inclusive approach to an organization's ECM strategy, while mitigating risks, improving productivity and information accessibility.

OpenText Extended ECM for Oracle E-Business Suite manages content throughout its lifecycle by combining secure, automated capture; low-cost direct-to-ECM document archiving with both Oracle E-Business Suite and ECM-based retrieval, easy-to-apply information hold and simple to advanced content search capabilities together with comprehensive records management. By providing a full view into transaction-relevant content and extensive information management tools now encompassing Microsoft SharePoint, OpenText Extended ECM for Oracle E-Business Suite provides Oracle ERP users with another way to span the ERP-ECM divide.
