Open Text Corporation, an ECM provider, has released Open Text Everywhere with native client applications for Apple iPhone and iPad, at the Open Text’s annual Content World user conference in Washington DC.
The new release enables users to put the content and business applications on these devices.
Open Text chief technology officer Eugene Roman said that by themselves, the iPhone and iPad are fantastic devices; but it’s not until you add content that they become truly transformative.
Open Text Everywhere enables users natively and securely access a full set of Open Text ECM Suite 2010 capabilities from both RIM BlackBerry and Apple iPhone and iPad devices.
It provides secure end-to-end communication between the ECM Suite and mobile devices, and pushes the permission model and audit capabilities of the ECM Suite right to the device, the company said.
Open Text Everywhere is fully integrated with Open Text Content Server, the core of the ECM Suite, for rapid deployment and minimal impact on IT, with low ongoing maintenance and support requirements.
The company claims Open Text Everywhere provides a comprehensive view of business processes, content and social collaboration tools.
Open Text is planning to add more features, capabilities and mobile platform support to the Open Text Everywhere offering in the coming months.
This may include a mobile email management application for managing email for legal, regulatory or corporate governance rules, and a new social interface for smartphone devices that incorporates access controls, auditing, and other ECM Suite capabilities.
