Having leveraged the standard enterprise's need to archive material and manage records, Open Text is starting to see a strong response for its Livelink ECM integration for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. This also includes its solution for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, which was just released in early March.Open Text, which specializes in ECM solutions for the Microsoft platform, purveys the most comprehensive enterprise records management and archiving capabilities for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. They work hand-in-hand with Microsoft to ensure they meet a number of customer requirements and scenarios. Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President for Office Business Platform at Microsoft Corp, demonstrates Microsoft loves Open Text as much as Open Text loves them. “The integration capabilities of Open Text’s solution deliver significant benefits and enable our customers to extend the value of their IT investments.” With its most current integration for Office SharePoint Server 2007, the Microsoft bosom buddies at Open Text bring value to four core areas: * Lifecycle Management, enabling companies to meet eDiscovery-oriented compliance requirements while offsetting the storage load from the front line of Office Sharepoint Server to a wide range of other storage media. * Access to Livelink ECM services already in place. * Server Content Archiving * Federated search. This lets users stay in SharePoint Server, find the content they need and repurpose it in many different ways. This improvement also keeps user permissions to the content intact. Existing Open Text users include the US's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Aera Energy LLC.
