"Together, Microsoft and OpenText are helping them to do so in a compliant way, while extending the usability of Office 365 by enabling collaboration with 3rd party ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle, a clear demonstration of the benefit of Microsoft and OpenText's partnership to enterprise customers."
