A bright future
OpenText is a profitable business with seasoned leadership and a proven formula for success. In addition, we have momentum in a large and rapidly growing market.
The EIM market is projected to grow at 10% from $13B today to $19B by 2016. Many enterprises have fully extracted value from their structured information (ERP systems) and are now transferring their budgets to EIM.
OpenText began in the late ‘80s as a University of Waterloo research project to digitize all 60 million words of the Oxford Dictionary – and make them searchable (thus, the meaning behind “OpenText”).
During that process something happened that would change the world: the Internet’s first search engine technology was created.
OpenText incorporated in 1991 and the new search engine technology it invented was soon adopted by Yahoo!, one of its first customers. This was the first of many innovations that would lead the company beyond search and, ultimately, into the world of EIM.
