OpenText EIM Solution Selected by EUROCONTROL

June 18, 2013

OpenText StreamServe helps Europe’s leading air safety organization
invoice all flight movements within the European airspace

WATERLOO, ON, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – OpenText(TM) (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC),
the global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced that OpenText StreamServe(TM) has been selected by EUROCONTROL for invoice processing within the
company’s new billing and claims system.

EUROCONTROL, the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation,
is an intergovernmental organization made up of 39 Member States and
the European Community. Founded in 1960, this civil-military
organization has developed into a vital European repository of air
traffic management (ATM) excellence, both leading and supporting ATM
improvements across Europe.

EUROCONTROL is deploying a new billing and claims system, ABACUS (Advanced Billing and Claims Unified System) based on OpenText StreamServe. The ABACUS Architecture, developed
by IBM Global Business Services, maximizes the exploitation of
commercial and open source components, such that the code development
effort is minimized. This new system is being put into place to
effectively manage the changing business needs of the European aviation
industry and the rapidly increasing growth rate of air traffic
throughout Europe which is expected to reach 20 million flights per
year by 2030.

“Billing and collecting pan-European air navigation charges in a
reliable and cost-efficient manner is a strategic mission of
EUROCONTROL and a vital enabler of safe and efficient air travel in
Europe,” said Oliver Tribel, IT project leader, Software Development
Framework Project at EUROCONTROL. “Being able to produce clear and
correct billing documents, in a flexible way, is a very important
requirement towards this goal.”

Simple to deploy and maintain, OpenText StreamServe delivers dynamic
composition, document process automation, and output management
capabilities. Designed to scale across any document-driven business
process, OpenText’s Customer Communications Management (CCM) solutions
integrate easily with ERP and supply-chain systems and applications.

OpenText StreamServe has been integrated as part of IBM’s ABACUS
solution at EUROCONTROL for the following reasons:

        --  Supports high volume reporting on moderately sized hardware
        --  State-of-the-art template builder
        --  Unique post-processing functionality (sorting, enveloping,
            bundling)
        --  Can retrieve data in XML from a database system using standard
            connectors (e.g., JDBC)
        --  The StreamServe engine is able to combine data from different
            data sources and calculate sums, averages, occurrence counts
            etc. The outcomes can be used not only in reports/documents but
            also to initiate the retrieval of other data.
        --  After report generation, reports are accessible in memory or
            stored on the file system at the caller's discretion

Lubor Ptacek, vice president, strategic marketing at OpenText said, “We
are excited to help EUROCONTROL with their application for invoice
processing within their new billing and claims system. OpenText
StreamServe supports high volume, complex report generating and
multi-channel distribution. Document templates can be filled with data
– both structured and unstructured – from different sources. All flight
movements within the European airspace will soon be invoiced by using
our software.”

Management (CEM) offering, one of five foundational pillars of OpenText’s Enterprise Information Management (EIM) strategy. OpenText Customer Experience Management (CEM) creates a rich,
