Open Text releases new version of Enterprise Connect

Allows users to pull business content from multiple repositories into logical business-centric view

By CBR Staff Writer

Open Text, an enterprise software company, has released Open Text Enterprise Connect, a new content service for its Open Text ECM suite, which allows users to blend content and processes within users’ preferred working environments.

The company said that the Enterprise Connect eliminates barriers and accelerates delivery of content applications by allowing users to access and interact with business content directly from desktop applications, such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Outlook and Windows Explorer.

According to Open Text, the Enterprise Connect, version 1.5, allows users to take advantage of functionality such as drag and drop from multiple repositories, single sign-on, and metadata classification and federated search.

In addition, the new version comes with an enhanced software development kit, US Department of Defense (DoD)-compliant records management, scalability and performance improvements, and a document viewer supporting over 200 different file formats. The SDK includes .NET and C++ base classes, plus source documentation, source code and a variety of tools to help organisations develop custom plug-in applications for Enterprise Connect.

Lubor Ptacek, vice president of product marketing at Open Text, said: With organisations continuing to face economic hardship, users are being asked to do more with less and can ill-afford to struggle with learning new user interfaces. Enterprise Connect is the ideal way for organisations to simplify the user experience, reduce training costs for new applications and pull together business content from multiple repositories into a logical business-centric view.
