OpenText Announces InfoFusion

November 14, 2012

New Information Access Software Allows Customers to Integrate EIM Data
from Multiple Systems

ENTERPRISE WORLD, ORLANDO, FL, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – OpenText(TM) (NASDAQ:
OTEX, TSX: OTC) today unveiled OpenText InfoFusion(TM), Information Access software specifically designed for Enterprise Information Management (EIM) that offers businesses a new and dramatically improved approach to
discovering, analyzing and managing unstructured information across
their enterprise.

According to recent industry estimates, unstructured information
accounts for more than 80 percent of an enterprise’s total information
and represents the largest and fastest growing source of knowledge,
innovation and efficiency available to organizations. Businesses are
increasingly looking at EIM to unlock the strategic value of this often
siloed, largely untapped information to help them cut costs, ensure
compliance, increase competitive advantage and make better decisions
about their business.

OpenText InfoFusion is designed to break down corporate information
silos and aggregate that information to capitalize on the benefits of
EIM. InfoFusion provides powerful data integration, content migration,
data archiving and legacy decommissioning tools that allow
organizations to discover, analyze and act on information throughout
their enterprise while also helping them identify and address critical
business issues.

Karen Shegda, Gartner research vice president, recently stated,
“Enterprises seek to capitalize on a growing number of
information-fueled opportunities that require a combination of
analytical capabilities and diverse data types. Those that blend
analytics and content, supported by a well-organized information
infrastructure, will reap the benefits.”(1)

Solving today’s EIM problems requires a highly scalable solution that
can help organizations easily access the information they need from
across their enterprise, analyze it and take action based on it.
Through the use of OpenText InfoFusion’s powerful search and analysis
capabilities and a wide array of connectors, users can now better
assess huge volumes of enterprise content, extract its full value and
make important decisions that can positively impact their business.

OpenText InfoFusion uniquely enables organizations to move, copy, delete
and change permissions on content to support Information Governance
practices. And, since InfoFusion is connected to OpenText’s
industry-leading EIM applications, it can extend the reach of OpenText
Enterprise Content Management and OpenText Records Management to
provide a single source of policy for the organization.

“CIOs are increasingly faced with large data sets that are too
disparate, too complex and too poorly organized for analysis with
conventional tools. As companies adapt their businesses to the
imperatives of cloud, social, mobile and ever-present compliance, new
methods are needed to access and aggregate this information,” said
Marten den Haring, Vice President, Information Discovery and Analytics
at OpenText. “OpenText InfoFusion is modular, standards-based
Information Access software that integrates seamlessly with OpenText’s
leading EIM solutions to solve these problems, enabling better
information governance and a smarter enterprise.”

OpenText InfoFusion also includes Integration Center with connectors
that help orchestrate data and provide authorized access to enterprise
repositories, including IBM(®) FileNet, EMC(®) Documentum(®) and Microsoft(® )SharePoint(®). Because many different EIM solutions share common requirements, a rich
set of APIs and reusable widgets are offered, enabling customers and
partners to develop applications for specific use cases and user roles.

OpenText InfoFusion will be available starting December 2012 directly
from OpenText, as well as through OpenText’s global partners. For
