MARCH 29, 2017

Welcome to the Digital Revolution!

All around us the digital revolution is changing the world. And its effects can be felt in every aspect of our daily lives. Technologies are accelerating at an exponential rate, producing unprecedented change that is ushering in the fourth industrial revolution.

Technologies continue to advance, accelerating the progress of other technologies. In 2016, we witnessed the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and it has already begun its evolution into the "Intelligence of Things." This will be the digital platform of the future. The old approach moved at the speed of human coders but the new model progresses at the speed of data, intelligence, and self-assembly.

Whether you're ready or not, the fourth industrial revolution is here. From consumer to technology, all businesses need the agility to adapt. To quote Sun Tzu: "In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity." There are incredible breakthroughs in every industry, driven by disruptive innovation… and the possibilities for application are unlimited.

OpenText Innovation Tour is my chance to connect with our customers in eight cities around the world. It is an invaluable opportunity for me to discuss this revolution with those organizations right at the heart of it, and to share and help your company prepare for the opportunity it holds. Each stop on our tour provides OpenText executives a platform to hear from and interact with our customers, to learn more about your challenges, and to share our vision and roadmap.

I am looking forward to visiting each city and am excited to meet with each of you along the way!

Learn About Exciting OpenText Activity
The information management landscape is changing rapidly. And OpenText has made huge strides to solidify its place as the industry leader. Innovation Tour is the place to get up to speed on recent happenings and what it means to you.
OpenText has acquired Documentum and two of the industry's leading ECM platforms are now together under one flag! What's it mean to customers of both and the EIM market in general? Here's your chance to find out.
We recently completed the acquisition of certain Customer Experience Software & Customer Communications Management assets of HP Inc. The acquisition allows OpenText to offer consumers a broader selection of software solutions in multi-channel customer engagement. (Press Release 1 | Press Release 2)
We are stronger as we expand our eDiscovery and Information Analytics footprint with our acquisition of Recommind. Through this acquisition, our customers now have increased visibility into structured and unstructured data, allowing us to make sense of large volume of enterprise information. (Press Release)
