May 3, 2012

Latest Mobility Offering Brings Touch-Friendly Secure Access to
Enterprise Applications for Apple iPad Users

WATERLOO, ON, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – OpenText(TM) (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC)
today announced that it has expanded its industry leading enterprise
portfolio of mobility solutions with the introduction of Exceed onDemand for Apple iPad tablets. The latest addition to the Exceed onDemand
family of managed application access solutions provides iPad users with
always-on collaborative access to their line-of-business UNIX
applications, while offering organizations the security and management
features of a true enterprise solution.

The iPad is quickly emerging as a standard business tool, driven by an
increasingly mobile workforce.  International Data Corp. (IDC)
forecasts tablet shipments into consumer and commercial markets will
reach 106.1 million in 2012.* Exceed onDemand for iPad features a touch-friendly interface that substitutes mouse interactions
with intuitive gestures, allowing users to bring their UNIX data center
along with them. Exceed onDemand is built on the Thin X Protocol(TM),
ensuring fast access to complex 2D and 3D line of business applications
even on high-latency connections such as 3G, 4G or LTE cellular
networks.

The new Exceed onDemand for iPad solution joins OpenText’s broad
portfolio of mobile technologies and solutions. OpenText offerings such
as OpenText Everywhere and the OpenText Mobile Wave Platform enable enterprises to efficiently
deliver enterprise content and information to employees’ mobile
devices, helping to significantly boost productivity. Enterprises can
also use OpenText Web Experience Management technologies to deliver personalized Web content directly to mobile
sites for customers on the go. Recently announced, OpenText Tempo provides document sharing and syncing across desktops, laptops and
mobile devices, while OpenText Travel Receipt Management for SAP Solutions support mobile capture of receipts.

Mobility boosts productivity, collaboration

Designed with productivity and collaboration in mind, Exceed onDemand
enables users to seamlessly transfer their active sessions between
desktops and iPad devices. With virtual teams becoming the norm in the
engineering world, the session sharing feature accelerates
collaboration by allowing engineers to run virtual design meetings
using Exceed onDemand and collaborate simultaneously on Apple iPad
tablets and desktop computers, or to show designs on meeting room
projectors.

By leveraging the Exceed onDemand infrastructure, Exceed onDemand for
iPad offers organizations an enterprise-class line-of-business
application access solution with robust security, strong authentication
and end-to-end encryption. Centralized management of the Exceed
onDemand infrastructure enables deployment of enterprise policies and
allows organizations to comply with industry security standards and
regulations.

“As a new generation of enterprise workers usher into the post-PC world,
organizations need to bridge the gap between their critical
line-of-business applications and these new devices.” said Eugene
Cherny, General Manager for Connectivity at OpenText. “Exceed onDemand
for iPad allows them to offer a mobile, touch-friendly, collaborative
solution to access UNIX applications, without sacrificing security or
compliance.”

Exceed onDemand for iPad is available immediately on the iTunes Store.
