Open Text Web Solutions, formerly known as RedDot Web Content Management (WCM), has gone through a major new release and is now in version 10. There are improvements to the technology stack, more ECM and SAP integrations, updated UI — and OTEX didn’t stop there.
Marci Maddox, Open Text’s director for global product marketing, was kind enough to share the details of the Web Solutions 10 release.
Open Text, understandably, continues to weave its multiple platforms into a coherent patchwork. ECM, DAM and the SAP NetWeaver Portal are some of the touch points.
Open Text Livelink ECM integration is coming as part of the integrations update release around September. Same goes for SharePoint 2010.
Integration with the recently unveiled Open Text Social Media is also in the plans, according to Maddox, who says that there’s already a “small integration” in place, but it is not a released item yet.
Shooting for Seamless Quilts
Open Text is in an interesting position of piecing together so many different systems that are either their own or were acquired. Seamless would be the ideal way for cross-system access to all relevant information.
Not many vendors are able to deliver that seamlessness, which comes with efficiency and ease-of-use. It’ll be interesting to see how Open Text does in this application quilting area, and how Vignette will be part of this entire patchwork.
