I met up with John Shackleton, the CEO of Open Text on Wednesday. I was keen to understand a bit more about the firm’s acquisition of beleaguered Vignette.
In the below podcast, I asked him about that deal, about the potential overlaps between the content management portfolios of Open Text and Vignette, and also why he believes Vignette was having a tough time finding consistent financial performance.
I also asked him whether Autonomy’s acquisition of Interwoven earlier this year presents a greater threat to Open Text and its Vignette business.
