Autonomy Customers Have Another Path to Protect Their Software
WATERLOO, ON, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC),
a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software, today announced a compelling and complimentary offer to Autonomy
customers interested in protecting their software investments. Existing
Autonomy customers now have the option to trade in valid Autonomy
licenses for OpenText licenses.
"We want to help Autonomy customers concerned with uncertainty about the
future," said OpenText President and CEO, Mark J. Barrenechea. "With
the OpenText trade-in offer, we're providing an opportunity for a
simple switch to OpenText software from Autonomy software, with no
increase to a customer's current software costs, but with a clear and
confident path to future value and more innovation."
OpenText will work closely with Autonomy customers, helping them to
achieve a seamless transition with minimal disruption to their
organization. OpenText Professional Services teams and OpenText
partners, experienced in facilitating migration from legacy products,
will be on hand to ensure a smooth transition. OpenText also offers new
products such as OpenText InfoFusion to greatly simplify and accelerate the process. This trade-in offer
will expire December 31st, 2012.
With the depth of OpenText's product portfolio, there is a compelling
alternative for every Autonomy customer. Based on their existing
products and needs, customers will be matched with comparable, and in
most cases, more comprehensive functionality using OpenText offerings.
Autonomy's Interwoven and iManage products can be readily replaced with
OpenText's Web Experience Management (WEM) and eDOCS solutions
respectively. OpenText's Records Management will serve as an unrivaled
substitute to Autonomy's Meridio, MDY, iLumen, and the former Iron
Mountain information governance products; and OpenText's MBPM will
constitute an effective upgrade for Cardiff BPM customers.
