OpenText expands strategic partnership with Google Cloud

OpenText, a provider of enterprise information management (EIM) software, has announced new partnerships, services, and product integrations to help customers move critical EIM workloads to Google Cloud. 

As part of this expanded relationship, Google Cloud has selected OpenText as its preferred partner for EIM services, while OpenText has named Google Cloud its preferred partner for enterprise cloud.

OpenText intends to leverage Google Cloud's multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud offering, Anthos, to deploy and manage containerized EIM application workloads in a multi-cloud environment. Today, OpenText is announcing the general availability of containerized versions of several EIM applications including Content Server, Extended ECM, Documentum, InfoArchive and Archive Center on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

OpenText will use Google Cloud to enable multi-layered global disaster recovery services for customers with business-critical EIM workloads running in the cloud, on-premise, and in hybrid cloud architectures.

In addition, OpenText intends to integrate its portfolio of products with G Suite allowing a seamless experience of using G Suite with various EIM activities and ensuring the world's largest organizations can unlock the full value of their data.

OpenText intends to integrate with key AI and machine learning services from Google in order to create purpose-built solutions for specific industries and to add value to the existing OpenText EIM Suite of products.

Google and OpenText will partner on expanded joint go-to-market activities to help enterprise customers move critical workloads to the cloud. Joint go-to-market activities will initially focus on industries, including financial services, media and entertainment, healthcare, and the public sector. 

"Cloud is a strategic imperative, and OpenText is committed to supporting our customers at every stage of their cloud journey," said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText CEO. "As a strategic EIM partner for Google Cloud, OpenText will deliver the next generation of our cloud-based content services supporting the Google Cloud Platform and the unique value add that Google offers like Anthos, translation services, and AI/ML.  As well, Google customers will be able to leverage OpenText Content Services more easily. Together, we can help the world's largest enterprises and organizations securely manage their most valuable asset, information."
